Love them or hate them, the Mustang Fox body is a platform that has been frequently used for a multitude of engine and drive train combos in the racing world. Such to the extent that you’d be hard-pressed to find a setup that hasn’t already been done several times over using the popular Ford pony. Considering the popularity of the Fox and the diversity of the masterminds behind the builds the sky is virtually the limit in regards to what someone will stuff into the engine bay of one of these cars.
Every now and then though, something truly unique can be found, such as this slick Fox. The swap found in this nice notch isn’t one that is stumbled across very often, and is none other than a Toyota 2JZ.
For the Ford fans that aren’t too fond of LSX swaps in a Mustang or generally scoff at anything other than Ford power at the heart of a Stang, well, this probably won’t sit well either. The 2JZ in this clean coupe is most commonly thought of in reference to the Toyota Supra. The dual overhead cam, twin turbocharged, six-cylinder, was produced in Japan starting around 1991 and lasted for approximately a decade. The 2JZ was Toyota’s flagship performance engine and was primarily developed and evolved in response to Nissan’s RB26DETT engine: think Nissan Skyline here.
This gorgeous Ford Mustang, owned by Diego Hernandez and built by TD Autowerkes of Florida, clicks off two seven-second passes with relative ease in this video courtesy of Boost Films SFL. Hats off to you Mr. Hernandez for doing something a little out of the norm, and doing it rather well.
