800whp+ BMW E36 with Toyota 2JZ engine
800whp+ BMW e36 M3 with Toyota 2JZ engine mate with a gearbox from BMW E46 M3 Getrag 420 by John Kessler.
John Kessler Administrator of 1JZ and 2JZ Powered BMWs Fb Group. He is a true encyclopedia of knowledge when it comes to the Toyota JZ 1JZ 2JZ swap on the BMW e36 / e46.
In 2015, he received the first version of our adapter kit Toyota 1JZ 2JZ – BMW M50 S50 M52 S52 M54 S54 M57 with a custom flywheel that did not have a bearing yet (a gearbox input shaft extension was used). Our flywheel mated with Sachs Performance 88 308 200 1243 and South Bend disc BMW e46. This combination made it possible to achieve 758whp / 710wtq.
In 2019, it’s time for a change and more power!!!
The gearbox adapter itself did not need to be changed, the flywheel was replaced with a much lighter version: PMC ultralight Custom Flywheel Toyota JZ 1JZ 2JZ – S54 Getrag 420G / 184MM 7.25″. Also used Tilton OT-II Cerametallic Pressure Plate 66-003-UORA and PMC Motorsport 184mm 7.25″ high-performance triple-disc set 28X35-10N.
Currently, John’s BMW e36 M3 has 800whp!
