Probably cause we have a great engine that is also much lighter.

I'm now in New Jersey but was in palm beach. People probably think its much more expensive and complicated.

Thanks! Probably cutting the shifter bracket to make it fit in the original factory hole since using our transmission with this motor pushed it to far back, also had to make a custom driveshaft.

Our engine is light that's true but it is a pos. Yes once it's built it will hold decent power but that's after spending a ton of money on just the motor to make what a factory 2jz will make. Not to mention they sound horrible .

Very nice/interesting. You should post the front/rear car weight to show the distribution. Also, spring for some 305+ rear tires.

Do all your gauges work ? Did you use the trans adaptor from Collins adapters?

All but the tac at the moment and the stock ones in the center console don't work either but I replaced those with others
