Not that it matters too much given the power to weight ratio this beast is gonna have, but what is the weight difference bxn a 2jz and an LS motor?? And is this thing going to be strictly a 1/4 mile killer or will she see a road course? Which leads me to my next question, what kind of suspension are you going to use to get this thing to hook up.

Mostly 1/4 mile car and street car. We're going to see how far we can go on stock suspension and then go with some coilovers.

LS engines are about 100 lbs lighter than the 2JZ I believe. That's with the tranny.
You are correct. Shouldn't be much of a difference in weight other than the turbo stuff.

many people dump the waste from the wastegate directly into the atmosphere to make a little more power and to free up space in the exhaust.
