don't care about brand or size but its going in a Toyota supra, so it needs to be a rwd.  can be resin or kit. looking for something tuner ish not sticking a v8-12 American style motor in it.

In the real world it's hard to beat a Supra engine in a Supra. I've seen twin-turbo units making over 700 HP at the rear wheels.

I know of a guy in Milwaukee that has a Supra with a Gigantic turbo (think Peterbilt) that makes just over 1100 whp! The 2jz motor is one of the kings of the tuner world.

I know this is sort of thread stealing but where does one sit when you got a v-12 in that?

Tamiya make both  supra and GTR skyline kits containing engines,or the parts box has supra engines but not as detailed as the tamiya offering.

I'm no expert on tuners, but I'm fairly certain the AMT '95 Supra, originally from the Fats and the Furriest  B) line, has an excellent 2jz.
