    Depends on what you want to do.

    Auto or manual trans?
    Cruising or racing?
    Goals?

    1uz would give better weight distribution, but expensive to make a manual.
    1jz probably pretty close to a drop in motor.

    I want to take it out on track and slide!
    And yes, I plan to covert to manual.

    Think the 1jz would be cheaper and easier to do, but I would look up the costs first.

    Although, I think the 1uz has more HP if that is of concern.
