I agree. It also helps under trail braking by toeing out, but for what it does to tire wear, it's a bad idea. I am sure the reason this bushing is so big and squishy is to preserve the "Lexus" ride.

No. The ECM will adjust short term and long term trim to adjust for the fuel unless it requires more than 20% rich to solve the imbalance. I have lots of practice with Supras.

Most of the time you "throw a rod" on decel, not because there is too much load. Rods love compression. They hate the piston trying to fly off.
