When trying to create the ultimate sleeper car, achieving the 1:1 power to weight ratio is what we call the job well done.

The car in question is the Toyota GT86, and according to the description of the video below, it was one of the first ones to land down under. Of course, as nice as that is, and it still came with the stock boxer engine, which for some people is never enough.

Like Mark from StreetFX for example. So, he went from setup to setup until he decided to replace the factory engine with the twin turbo unit from a Nissan GT-R R35. What followed was the sequential gearbox mated to the 4.1-liter stroked engine, which now puts down 1,300 hp.

The reason why this car is the 1:1 is because it weighs no more than 2,800 lbs (1,270 kg), and let’s just say you won’t want to be racing this thing in the straight line anytime soon, regardless of what you drive.

The owner also added the widebody kit in order to complete the transformation – which makes sense if you want to advertise a fact that your ride is anything but stock. Is this the best engine swap EVER!?
