I was sitting on the fence on whether to stay 7MGTE or go the 1J route. Went to a shop that does the swaps and rode in a 1J Cressida running 13 psi of boost on stock twins but upgraded downpipe and intercooler. Cressida is about 250 lbs lighter than my MKIII. To be honest, I was not impressed. Very flat and kinda boring. Torque was just not there, so I am definatley staying 7M.
