When Mechanics Lose Their Minds
Insane Engine Swaps
When i come to the world of engine swapping we’ve seen plenty of insane engine swaps, but when it comes to improbability, we have to give these guys props for coming up with these insane ideas and having the creativity and skills to pull them off. Keeping in mind none of these are simple drop-ins with kits readily available, so each of the builds you’re about to see took some real time and engineering to pull off.

The first car in the video is definitely one of the most unlikely swaps you’ll ever see, because not too many people are going to pull the vaunted RB-series engine out and swap it for, well, anything. However, he owner of this Skyline decided to do just that, swapping in a torquey, smoke-rolling Powerstroke diesel instead and surprisingly enough, it works great for drifting.
But wait there’s more, another unlikely diesel swap, with a 5.9L Cummins being crammed most of the way under the hood of a Mazda RX8. After that, a Cummins swap in a Nissan 240SX that has actually been around a while.

After that, another swap that is completely unexpected, is the Toyota 2JZ-GTE in a Ford Model A, with a big turbine hung off the side, we can only assume this thing is ridiculously fast considering the Model A is a fairly lightweight ride.

The list goes on for these crazy emgine swaps but you'll just have to watch the rest of the video to see what they are.
