  1. Hi. I've just recently sold my car and am now looking to get into drifting. My choice of car is the SC300 but I'm unsure what engine to get the 1JZGTE or the 1UZ. The car will be daily driven and modified to take to the track. Whats the best pick? Also what are the common problems with both of them? It will be an auto then this summer coming I'll do a manual swap. I'm mechanically minded so will be able to fix most of the stuff that may go wrong. Any help/information about them will be great!
  2. Picked her up last weekend from Southampton after trading in my 2007 335i M-Sport. She is a 2008 with 50k on the clock (Full Lexus Service History). I absolutely love her. She is called Lichelle :-) Apologies for poor photo quality. She's a little dirty as well as I picked her up in minging weather.
  3. Under the hood.

    From the album My new "Passion"

  4. Hi all, looking at transplanting a UZ engine into another vehicle, as I know the engines are pretty well designed and strong from stripping a couple previously, however, is it possible to run these on the standard ECU out of the car, if so, do I need the ignition barrel/immobiliser, etc, etc? If not, is there a proven plug 'n play alternative/piggyback for them or will I need a full blown standalone ECU and custom loom?
  5. Sc430 Progress Thread - Craigison

    Hi all This is my SC430 that i picked up a couple of weeks ago, Thought i would start a progress thread ... 2001 (51) Lexus SC430 - Silver - Originally from Liverpool - 35,000 at pick up. Silver Exterior, Black leather with Walnut trim. Completely Stock ... The Day i picked her up .... Bye Bye Clio ... Hello Luxury! :P Everything appears to be mechanically sound. She's just in need of a bit of TLC to get her back to looking like new. Absolutely love the car, Engine and gearbox are fantastically smooth. Ride is a little soft but hey, Its how its suppose to be for this type of car (Im been used to a MK3 Renault clio on hard coil overs for the last few years, So anything seams soft compared to that!) ... So far, so good :) Things to do ... 1. Remove corrosion and repaint the two radiator locator brackets. At same time replace/protect any bolts with slight corrosion. 2. Replace Fuse box (Next to battery). Previous owner couldn't figure out how to remove the lid, So he took a screwdriver to the side and smashed the casing ... 3. Battery box is missing. Find a replacement. 4. Full underside rust proofing (As underside looks like it has never seen rain before!!! would like to keep it looking like this!) 4. Small dint to be removed from Bonnet and Passenger side rear arch. 5. Gold Emblems to be cleaned up and re-plated if needs be. 6. TPMS valve stems are damaged (Threaded part) are worn/damaged to the point a valve cap won't fit. 7. Mark Levinson 6x9's in both doors have perished and will either be repaired or replaced. Or all speakers replaced with higher quality units, But retain the OEM Head unit. 8. Figure out why the head light washers aren't working (Possible seized motor). Passed its MOT before i picked it up, so should be working! 9. Alloys have just been refurbished, But not exactly to a high standard, so will be redone at some point. One alloy has a crack in it (apparently) so this will be looked into/replaced/fixed 10. Restore Head Light lens's as slightly yellowed at the top on both. Replace yellow side light bulbs with whiter bulbs (To match HID's) that are "E" marked (Not L.E.Ds as I've been caught out by a MOT tester before over this) 11. Cam belt, Serpentine belt, Water Pump and Thermostat to be replaced (all 13 years old so being water pump and thermostat being preventatively replaced) along with a full service with transmission fluid, Brake fluid and Power steering fluid change. 12. Replace tyres as they are 6 years old. Also a full alignment check as steering wheel is slightly off centre. 13. Check if recalls have been done ... 14. Full interior clean with leather feed and treatment. 15. Full Paint Correction for exterior (As she's never been polished before going from how rough the paint feels!) 16. iPod connectivity to head unit 17. All air filters to be replaced (Air con to be cleaned and re-gassed) ... Basically, I want to get her back to looking and working like she's just come off the production line :) After all this ... (This is were some of you might fall out with me!) ... Unfortunately The plan is ...(eventually) get her sat on Air Ride, US rear bumper (Deleted fog lights) with deleted reflectors front and rear (or possible body kit change, but nothing OTT) and some very large, Very wide, Very cambered wheels and things like pressed number plates, custom exhaust (Currently a little too quite for my personal taste) ... Effectively going down the V.I.P Style route .... However, these plans will probably change!
