3S-GTE powered Scion xD

Paid In Full
Quote:
"Scion was excited to work with me from the get-go," Mike says, "but getting others on board was different. All my past projects were modified in ways that really made sense," he says, about his 1JZ-swapped SC300 drift car, VIP-styled SLK, and xB show car, among others. "Building an xD into a race car was so far out there, I don't think too many people thought I could actually do it." On why he chose the 3S-GTE conversion, rather than building the xD's 1.8L 2ZR-FE to the hilt, or swapping in a 2.2L 2AZ-FE from a tC, Mike explains, "Like the SR20 to Nissan builders or the B18C to the Honda guys, if you were looking for a four-cylinder Toyota engine for your project car, the 3S-GTE has always been the one to have." Ubiquitous, as it came gift-wrapped from the Toyota factory in transverse and longitudinal mounting patterns, chances are one variation could be made to fit nearly any platform, with a little work. Except the xD, so Mike had been told. "Back when I started talking about this project, everyone told me the 3S just would not fit into an xD without major modification," he says, "but since the MR2 has a transverse-mounted 3S placed over its rear wheels-in a tight engine bay-I figured we could make it work in the xD."

Possibly most impressive about this build, is that it occurred entirely over a two-month period.

"It's done looking pretty," laughs Mike. "Now it's time to kick some ass-Super Lap Battle finals, look out!"

How freaking awesome! But, the question arises, couldn't they just build and boost the heck out of the motor it came with and still hit those numbers relatively easily and with cash left over?

The 2ZR-FE is a relatively new motor and there's not as much aftermarket support as the 3S-GTE I suppose.
