  1. GS300 MK2 exhaust and MOT question

    Yes, if you can stop the blow, then it should pass the MOT with no issue. 9 times out of 10, a blow is more of a problem as it skews the emissions numbers and fails on those. It would have to be an epic blow to fail on that alone, ie noise. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  2. IS300 2JZ-GE NAT #no compromise

    I'm assuming that 61.885 is a typo? As you say, and as I understood it, the 2JZ-GE and 2JZ-GTE are the same, but if swapping bits about, you'd need to get the correct bearing based on the numbers on the block, crank and rods. Maybe the crank has been "worked" before and the bearings not replaced? If its still under the max tolerance, its probably ok, but I'm sure there are probably folk on one of the supra forums that might be more in the know.

  10. As above, the odb readers are so cheap, I leave one in the glovebox of each of our cars. Sent from my iPhone using Lexus OC
  11. Is the abs light on as well? I'd have expected that to be lit if a sensor was faulty. As you say vsc issues can be caused by many things, brake components (would expect abs light to be on though), but also ignition or throttle issues, and also things such as the yaw control components. Probably worth either getting the codes read, or shorting the right pins in the diagnostic socket to do the "blink" counts on the lights to read the codes (sorry, on holiday at the moment so cannot point you to the correct method to do the code Reading). Without some pointers, you could be randomly changing all sorts, and racking up some substantial costs in the process. Sent from my iPhone using Lexus OC
  12. When you say wet weather, does that mean simulating wet weather with a hose pipe would make it appear, or is it the spray off the roads under the car causing the problem to show up? Sent from my iPhone using Lexus OC
  13. Are there any used original keys on eBay that you can swap the blade and innards on? Sent from my iPhone using Lexus OC
  14. Grinding on left turns from osr

    The lip on the back would be evident as soon as the discs were changed unless something has clouted the backing plate recently. Definitely a disc off job to take a look. This tutorial I did for the GS should be very similar to the SC, if not exactly the same.....
