2JZ Rolls-Royce Phantom Is The Maddest Swap Ever
Oh boy, I love this guy with a 2JZ Rolls-Royce Phantom

C’mon, you simply do not tune or modify a Rolls-Royce. At all. Especially the Phantom.
Or do you!?
Well, maybe you do if it fails on you. And this one – the 2008 Rolls-Royce Phantom failed its Japanese owner. Famed 6.6-liter V12 engine seized after only 115,000 miles on the road. That is a bit mournful.
So, in order to make it as it’s supposed to be, this owner could have sent the Rolls-Royce to an official service center and let them replace the engine, or he could, out of misery, try to do something even better. Something insane.
Yes, he went for the insane option.
This 2008 Rolls-Royce Phantom got a new heart. It got a freaking 2JZ engine. Yes. It is a swap. Let’s repeat it once – 2JZ Rolls-Royce Phantom.
Toyota is happy and Supra, which made this engine more than famous, is a winner once again.
2008 2JZ Rolls-Royce Phantom Isn’t Your Everyday sight
This hero installed a freaking 900hp 2JZ engine into the biggest piece of luxury invented since the Manhattan parking spot.
Turbocharged three liter was rather nicely incorporated under the bonnet. But, we find it a bit, well, awful to see that transmission lever between the seats. After all, the Phantom had that neat column transmission lever. Nevertheless, it all works well. At least, it seems. Aristo provided the transmission for the car, while J and K Power workshop installed the engine.
We have found some additional details about the engine as well. We have here the HKS forged internals, a GReddy T78-33D turbocharger and an HKS GTS8555 supercharger.
That is a lot of forced induction devices.
