In the past in Gran Turismo 7, it was only possible to replace a used engine with a new one and make limited swaps. However, the 1.34 update from late May 2023 introduced the option to swap a diverse range of car engines. Now you can put some completely different engines into any ordinary car – logically much stronger than it would make sense! This feature has existed for a long time in Forza Motorsport and even Horizon games, and only now is available for the first time in the Gran Turismo series.
Since this isn’t a cheap action, and it’s well-known how hard it is to get Credits in Gran Turismo 7, we bring you a list of some of the best and craziest engine swaps in the game that we’ve tried and that are actually recommended by Gran Turismo’s rabid fanbase. Now you won’t need to burn your hard-earned Credits just to experiment.
Some of the Best Engine Swaps in GT7 (Update 1.34)
- Ferrari’s F136F-458 engine into the Alfa Romeo 4C Launch Edition ’14
- BMW’s P65B44-Z4 engine into the BMW M3 Coupé ’03
- Pagani’s M158-AMG Huayra engine into the Toyota Supra RZ ’97
- Roadster Shop’s LS7-Rampage engine into the DMC DeLorean S2 ’04
- Honda’s K20C1 Civic ’20 engine into the Fiat Abarth 595 Esseesse ’70
- Subaru’s LS7-BRZ engine into the Nissan Silvia Q’s (S13) ’88
- Mazda’s 13B-REW RX-7 engine into Suzuki Cappuccino (EA11R) ’91
- Porsche’s M64/03-911 engine into the Volkswagen 1200 ’66 or Volkswagen typ2(T1) SambaBus ’62
Yes, it is just as mad as it sounds and you should absolutely do it – just because now you can!
How to Swap Engines in GT7 (Update 1.34)
First of all, to be able to use this feature, you will need to have a maximum Collector Level that is 50. Then you can go to GT Auto and select Car Maintenance & Service, where you can choose all compatible engines for the currently selected car. You will need to buy an engine (or win it with a roulette ticket with four or five stars) and pay the installation fee of 100.000 credits. Go wild!
