I broke a 2JZ block, put a rod through it when a piston fractured. Really stout blocks, I just did something stupid.

I'm anticipating selling my current N54 and moving on to an S55 M4. If the stars align / the market doesn't crash / etc. As the pics below testify to, the 2JZ block got nicely ventilated...

This means it can take a lot more beating compared to the N54 open deck design. One of the favorite tuner engines of all time would be Toyota's 2JZ. It also has a closed deck design, making it indestructible. People have put 2JZ in everything from E36/E46 M3s to Honda S2000. With the closed deck design, the S55 has a bright future and many records to break to surpassed the 2JZ.
