    It's all a matter of preference....they are so tuned, you can't really say one is better than the other. The only thing that makes me laugh....for all you Supra lovers (and although I know the 2JZ is a great engine), but it's funny how they decide to go with the 3S-GTE!<IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">

    toyota decided to go with the 3S-GTE for better weight. the 2JZ-GTE is an iron block engine, so it would not be an advantageous to use it. with the 3S-GTE, the engine is smaller, so they can mount the engine closer to the center for better weight distribution. and...do u know what's funny? the supras are competitive with a 4 cylinder engine while honda and nissan are using 6 cylinder engines.

    here's the result for the 5th round of the JGTC. it took place at Fuji International Speedway. the track is similar to "high speed ring" in granturismo 1 & 2.

    1. au CERUMO SUPRA
    2. Xanavi NISMO GT-R
    3. ZENT TOM'S SUPRA
    4. FK/Massimo ADVAN SUPRA
    5. TOKUHON TOM'S SUPRA

    it's funny that 4 4-cylinder engine powered supra finished in the top 5.

  12. Re: The Mighty JGTC Calsonic Skyline

    its not really that funny that the supra 4 cylinder finished top 5, with four cylinder engines you are allowed to have higher boost in the JGTC, which means that with a horizontally opposed front mounted intercooler and running WAY more boost, the supra actually makes about 5kw less than the skylines and with better weight distribution and airflow due to the horizontal intercooler
     
  13. Re: The Mighty JGTC Calsonic Skyline

    What made toyota choose the 2 liter engine over the standard 3 liter supra engine?
    Its quite incredible that this car runs in the same race as the 3.5 liter V8 NSX's. Suppose thats down to good enginearing.
    Castrol rules..............
     
  14. Re: The Mighty JGTC Calsonic Skyline

    the NSX uses a V6. and they use the 3-sgte because of weight, and possibly center of balance (mush the engine back more) and the 3-sgte is just incredible.
     
  15. Re: The Mighty JGTC Calsonic Skyline

    Calsonic Skyline rulez but the best has to be the LeMans Skyline.
     
  16. Re: The Mighty JGTC Calsonic Skyline

    Denso Supra and Mugen NSX
     
  17. Re: The Mighty JGTC Calsonic Skyline

    Supras doesn't use the 3S-GTE engine anymore. They use a 3UZ-FE V8. NSX use the C32B in both GT500 and GT300 series. BNCR34 Skylines use the VQ30DETT.
     
  18. Re: The Mighty JGTC Calsonic Skyline

    The Calsonic Skyline is just out right bad-ass though you have to admit that. Of course I am partial to Nissans.......
