Turbocharged 1JZ E30 - One of the best engine swaps we've seen

In another episode of the Launch Control series, we see what happens when you toss a turbocharged Toyota 1JZ engine into a BMW E30 chassis.

Marck Williams didn't build this car to go racing, he built it to enjoy it. Starting off with a BMW E30 316 coupe body, over the course of 2 years, Marck rebuilt the car and executed a superb engine swop, fitting and turbocharging a 1JZ motor.

The result is one of the best local builds we've come across. With a 5-speed manual, it's hugely engaging to drive, and with around 300 kW on the wheels, it is properly, properly quick.

Enjoy and let us know what you think.
