Would love to see how the finished product does on the strip. Was honestly debating getting a G16E for myself to mod now and put in the GRC later and have the stock as a back-up

It’s turning out to be a great power plant, I can only imagine how fast that Levin will be.

If we end up getting the GRMN version in the GRC you might have to wait and snag that one as a spare. Lol. Pretty exciting though

I mean we knew from the start it was going to be a killer motor. A motor made for WRC made by a company that is known for overbuilding their engines? Hell yeah, who cares if it's only 3 cylinders

Well it was still pretty unheard of for the most part outside of a few examples! It’s also surprising considering Toyota makes their vehicles hard to crack (ecu) to maintain reliability these days.

Hell, I'm still shocked how great Motive Video is doing with their Yaris, especially with how little they've actually done to make the power

Forget B16 and 2JZ swaps, let's do G16 swaps!
Whoa, let's not get ahead of ourselves. :ROFLMAO:

G16E is gearing up to be a modern 4AGE for sure, minus a cylinder. 😂
The G16 is going to be modern day swap motor like the K20 was. I can't wait until the endless U.S based shops get their hands on it and start making aftermarket parts. This would be perfect in an SW20 MR2.

Well a K swap is common for Hondas, they literally have a K series still in their Type Rs for example and have a crate for it. Lol

for a Toyota it was 2jz and for smaller cars the 4AGE/Beams/2zz etc! So seeing the G16e being dropped into a old Corolla is kinda where I got that from.
