Default Engine/Tranny Swap

Should I convert my SC400 A/T to a M/T and drop a 2J in? What are the benefits of this conversions, and what other mods should I do?

You'll gain 1 MILLION!! horsepower and at least 50 'mad props'



I say ditch the auto and go manual. That alone should change your v8 experience entirely.
The 2JZ is an incredible motor. I don't need to hype it up. This chassis would be long dead without it.
Just please don't go 1JZ-GTE. I like feeling 'special'

Awesome, I can't wait to begin my project. Right now I have my SC in the shop it's overheating and it appears the fan blade is spinning slow hope to have her back soon. I know it's not the fan motor because I've already swapped it out.
