The Papadakis Racing team began drifting in 2004 and is the most winning team in Formula Drift history, earning the 2015 title with driver Fredric Aasbo, as well as back­to­ back championship titles with driver Tanner Foust in 2007 and 2008. The Rockstar Energy Drink / Nexen Tire Toyota Corolla Hatchback is the latest competition build from the Hawthorne, California, based team.

Team owner Stephan Papadakis is a legend of sport­ compact racing who began building his reputation in the 1990s with the first front-wheel ­drive, tube­-chassis drag car in the U.S. The team earned multiple records and championships in the discipline, turning in elapsed times and trap speeds previously thought unattainable in front­-drive drag cars. Papadakis' successes in front­-wheel drive were matched by his efforts in rear­-wheel drive when he campaigned a Honda Civic that became just the fifth car to join the NHRA's Sport Compact 200 MPH club

    Loved this video. I got a 2JZ in my IS300 2002 manual. Its going strong almost 20 years later. I had probably the basics of this done. But I know 0 percent about this stuff. I did know that Ferrari did the red valve covers tho so I guess I know a little. But judging how well you did this engine, Id love to hear how that one sounded. I bet it hummed like a humming bird.

    Sadly from 2030 on all combustion cars including classics will be banned from public streets in entire EU and Scandinavia :-( In Germany the Green Peoples Party gave order to shorten fuel supply from 2025 on by reducing all conventional fuel stations to only one state operated central gas station per city or county. Now they want to slow down all the gas station fuel pumps from 20 litre per minute to 2 litre per minute...From 2027 on in the EU certain car spare parts will be banned exhaust systems, turbo chargers and even some engine and gearbox oils...California and New York will do the same from 2027 on.... So no investments should be done in oil burning cars any longer....They even created a new kind of crime here, called emissions and smoke crime...

    Amazing to see how similar this engine is to the 3S. It's basically a 6cyl version.

  • Alex

    i think he probably has done so many 2JZ rebuilds he probably got tired of it

  • uhavemooface

    I started playing Car Mechanic Simulator 2021 about a day or so ago and I had to come here to see if its really like that. I have to say most of this is in the game. I don't know if you can actually learn how to put an engine together by playing car mechanic simulator but it does tell you the names of the pieces of gear.

    Anyone who says they dont need a torque wrench to get 'x' spec they're either wrong, lying, or dumb. Argue all ya want about it being necessary but I have never met a single person who can call their torque spec on a random nut. price is right rules
