Really thinking on going with a LS, but the 2JZ pop up in my head to. I'll have to see which would be a better option for me. I'll keep you posted on what I decide. Just wanted to share my ideas with my XB ohana.

2jz would be better imo! Atleast then you would be sticking to toyota roots.
Also that motor can make a **** ton of power lol.

LOL, you and I have had some sort of connection is seems, so I to not surprised you knew something like his was gonna come. How yo been TartanJack? I'll have to make way for the transmission, drive shaft, stuff like that. not sure the besat way to go about this yet, though I have some ideas on how i want to do this.

Chance12XB, I no really gonna make it fast, just wanna do this for looks really eh. But your right about the 2JZ. both engines can go fast. looks wise, v8's just have the typical look I was going for yea. :cheers:

I can agree with that. The 2jz is a gorgeous engine, but being a straight six the header would only come out one side, where as the LS would have a symmetrical hot rod lay out... its a tough choice indeed but I'm sure whatever you pick HP will come out awesome. Finally got to see your ride rolling yesterday in town and I have to say that it looks even sicker in person than it does in pics!

If going for looks . . .
I always liked the ASYMMETRICAL look of a straight 4 or 6 in a rod. The pipes out to one side looks neat to me.

Also, the xB was originally designed as asymmetrical, but was made more symmetrical before production. The offset light was a remnant of that asymmetricalness.
