The Toyota GT 86 is becoming the vehicle of choice by tuners that it was designed to be. Recently, we have gotten wind of some pretty insane engine swaps that are in development or recently completed.
Pro-drifter Ryan Tuerck recently posted a video of his latest swap, putting a 4.5-liter V8 engine from a Ferrari 458 into a Toyota GT-86. The engine from the Ferrari produces 570 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque and one two different categories of the prestigious 2011 International Engine of the Year awards.
Meanwhile, in Australia, there is a project underway to add a 4.1-liter V6 GT-R engine into the Toyota GT 86. Yes, there is yet another project underway to add a 3.8-liter engine from R35 but this particular project is a 4.1-liter engine, an altogether larger engine. As a result, it can be considered a first.
