Re: the handling problem & the 1JZ.

The 1JZ physical size of the short block is still roughly the size of the 2JZ (having seen pics of them side by side). Only difference is the 1J is a 2.5L, the 2J is a 3.0L.

Regardless, installing a larger/longer motor into a chassis that has a SHORTER wheelbase that was not designed for this motor is really going to HOSE your weight distribution up front. You'll probably be fine if you plan on going in a straight line, but if you're going around twisties... eeek.

Yes, installing it can be done, but the results in the end... :p
