You are a sick man, and we love sick men around here!!
I would love a set of fender flares like that, could get some serious rubber on the rears!
If you had to do the 2jz conversion from scratch, I am not sure building the S62 wouldn't be in the same ballpark. With the advent of RK and sleeving the block, there is some serious hp potential, although I don't know you can get to 1000 for similar money with a full 2jz swap.
Of course, it would be supercharged, not turbocharged, unless Raza has some free time on his hands.
