you'll most likely have to get a custom driveshaft made, I doubt the stock one will A) handle the power of a 2jz and B) be the correct size. you'll have to get custom tranny mounts made. custom exhaust, and down pipes if you're going with the TT 2jz. reroute all the cooling lines, ditch the BMW ecu. good luck...
