Owner swaps a 1JZ into a Prius and turns it into a drift monster.
When you hear about a Toyota Prius we are quick to assume it is an anti-car enthusiast vehicle. It’s made for people who want a good gas mileage and a boring drive to work. As car guys we want fast loud cars to speed around in.
One man bought a wrecked Toyota Prius for $250. Instead of returning it to it’s original state he decided to make it a drift car. How do you ask? He took the 1JZ out of a Toyota Supra.
He ended up converting the car to RWD. The 2.5L engine has plenty of power to roast the tires. Even though it’s not the prettiest car on the road it looks like it has plenty of smiles per gallon. Let us know what you think of the car in the comments below!
