not sure what the OP did but james he should be able to keep the stock crossmember since he used a front sump chaser 1JZ. i BELIEVE (iirc) that Mounts from a SC300 or later vvti SC/GS300 should let him bolt the JZ series into his car easily.

what pure drifter said i didnt have to do any modification to the car at all the transmission bolted up to the stock location then i used the chaser mounts that came withthe 1jz and the stock rubbers the passenger side lined up great i had to make a little extension about 2 inchs on driverside it save me some money instead of trying to find the aristo mounts ill get more pictures of the swap and i have a video on youtube of the first startup it kinda sucks but it shows it running look for 1jz ls400
well i took it for the first test drive today it runs like crap i doesnt shift out of first gear and it acts like it is hitting like a launch control when free reving and when i drive it and give it more than 20% throttle it acts the same way the turbo starts spooling but it feels like it is just stalling any ideas?
