Im wondering what can be done to a late 80's Toyota tercel 1500cc engine that is carbed but has all the sensors and sh!t on it. I want to take all that crap off and run it as simple as possible so i can swap it into a bug and do i LQ conversion. iv been checking out adapter plates on kennedy. I think this engine would mate well with stock trans and clutch.. am i right or wrong?

Depending on its torque output you may want a heavier duty clutch. so unless the motor is built for performance you should have no problem. my buddy did a 2.3 ford (70-80ft.lbs.) in his baja with a stock trans and his only problem is that his rear end sags A LOT. so now he has suspension work to do. acceleration isnt that great either. i have a 22r toyota that is ready to go into something and i cant decide weather i should put it in my baja or not. i have been trying to decide for 3 years now.
