Wow. Never did see this one. That is one complex project, but they seem to be approaching it right.

Sense is rarely a part of these equations/projects,lol.They are most always driven by rare combinations and WOW factor.
That....and unlimited budgets and time frames.

Just a persons way of showcasing some skill sets and creativity.

That's wicked! Z4 coupes always get the fun swaps! N54 and this beast! Z4M's have "only" gotten S62 V8 and S65 V10.

I'd take the s62/65 any day over the n54, and this swap has yet to be completed. Don't forget the e39 m5 v8 that was swapped into the pre-facelift roadster (before the M's were released)!

thats because its silly to take out a perfectly good high performance motor and replace it. Plus if you're gonna hack something up, the regular z4 is much cheaper and appropriate

Srsly

Never heard a Viper on the street that didn't sound like a tractor. Actually driving one allows you to discount that aspect quite quickly, however, in considering engine swaps for anything other than an industrial pump, a Dodge v10 probably wouldn't even come to mind.

The old Vipers didn't have any crossover in their exhaust, so it sounded like two 5 cylinder engines.

Corsa makes universal mufflers, which can be used with a custom exhaust on my car. Won't be as throaty as a big block engine though

The Corsa does make it sound like a proper automotive engine; much nicer.
