Full Imported 2JZ Engine Refresh, Built for Thrashing in Dan’s 240sx

  • Published: 13 April 2019
  • When buying an imported motor that’s going to be thrashed in drifting/racing/aggressive driving, it’s always a good idea to replace all those 20+ year old rubber seals BEFORE the engine goes into the car. Danger Dan is all about saving future headaches, so he walks us through how to refresh your JDM motor for many more miles of thrashing.

                    So we get to watch dan build a car and on scottos next episode we will watch him remove a bolt. I think scotto needs to hire his wife to finish his cars for him while he films and talks. Frosted tips, just sad.
                    Just busting balls would love to see scotto finish a car.

                                      Love what you are doing but hate you for making my loved Toyota Engines 7M 1JZ and 2JZ and the R154 more popular and expensive.

                                        Get well soon Dan. Remember to keep yo self tuned up, and to answer your question. I'd slap it in a BMW only because I like Audi's more and it would piss off the BMW purists wile giving a nod to the tuners at the same time. "A 97 335 faded green" u could call it a "3"jz.
