Can any 1 tell me if its possible to swap a Toyota Supra engine w/a Ford Taurus/Mercury Sable Gen IV? The Supra Engine have similar traits as the Taurus like they r both the same size 3.0. Can this be done?

Direct Swap?

No.

Different platforms. Its a RWD Car.. You need a FWD Transmission which is Smaller, and layed out differently. Also.. IDK of any FWD Transmissions that fit on a 2JZ-GE or 2JZ-GTE

Also its a INLINE 6 which means the engine is longer than a traditional V6.



Custom job?

Totally possible... You would have to figure out how to run the exhaust, transmission, and a rear axle....

Expensive. But seriously its your money.

liters =/= physical external size

Can it be done? Anything can be done. Is it worth it? NO. Unless you are in love with the Taurus /Sable body. Personally, style wise, Supra > Taurus/Sable

Someone did this with a first gen probe. Full out drag car, and not really that fast.

This swap would cost several times more than your car is worth.

Not to make fun of you but i chuckled when i read this. Although if your or some did swap it that would be baddass, but you could prob just buy a supra cheaper. still if you want, go for it.
