JZ in an AE86 makes it VERY fast in a straight line... but that big engine in that car is not going to make it a handler....

It could've handled well if it were sitting halfway behind where the firewall is right now, but putting it in the stock engine location like this creates an Audi-style very-front-engined layout.

Meh. There's cars with worse weight distribution that don't handle badly.

You can tune a lot of that out.

With a car that light you can tune out the front bias but that thing must be a barn burner in a straight line or sideways.

that interior is so "meh" compared to the aesthetics of the swap.

That and the rear window sticker really make it look cheaper of a build then it really is.

I doubt its upset the weight distro that badly, the A series motor was no featherweight. Moving the battery to the trunk, and the heavier gearbox, and the 8.8 probably cancels out most of it.
