We have seen a number of awesome engine swaps, but this one may be the best of them all. This is an old 1998 Toyota RAV4 with a turbocharged engine. And not any engine, but one from the Toyota Caldina GT-T.
This car had a 256 turbocharged beast now residing under the hood of this fantastic Toyota RAV4 with an all-wheel drive and a manual.
So, considering we have here a compact SUV with a weight of 2,524 to 2,789 lbs, this engine makes a real treat of it.
And you can see that in this fantastic video. Filmed on a small parking lot covered in snow, this Toyota RAV4 was dancing the dance of its life. Sure, we will share here all the build videos and if you are really interested in all of this, you should follow this guy and his awesome build.
The title of the video is spot on too – “SUBARU STI Owners HATE the ST215W 3S-GTE Gen4 Caldina Engine!”. Obviously, this Toyota really has places to go with so much extraordinary gear under the hood.
Swapping an old RAV4 engine with this beast was not an easy job, but he did it in a most awesome way. Find some time and watch it all. You will not regret it.
