IS300 2JZ-GE NAT #no compromise

Recommended Posts

Because of the new manifold ive also had to relocated the power steering bottle, lines and cooler.

I went for a neater cooler and 1 i could mount to the crash bar.20200517_151009.thumb.jpg.a3324e6811f2bc1c51dc4f5f1a9f5e85.jpg

There is so much i have done and so much i want to show you but its so frustrating whats going on with the pics, some load some dont🤨.

So next up on my to do list was something ive been quite excited about, now that the auto box has gone i know have a steering wheel with 4 useless button on...... well was useless.20200427_182158.thumb.jpg.9680dc98ef59b4ce7f74ef297dac5e6e.jpg

these could be very usefull so i decided to pull the air bag off and have a look at the wiring. Very simple setup, front buttons are wired together and so are the rear as they both have the same opperation.

Now they dont, i manipulated the wiring and switched it up so now the botton on the right can be linked to the AEM ecu and the 1 on the left for another toy i want to fit.

so i traced the wiring on the buttons down to the junction box in the passenger footwell, i de pinned them from the plug connector and added my own wiring in to link to the AEM.20200414_153930.thumb.jpg.91062876100084d01e00cc66afda742d.jpg

Added loom protector to it then pinned it into the ecu.

The button on the right now activates 2step rev limiter and launch control. And the button on the left will be used for line lock... if i get round to installing it.

Dont even have to take my hand off the steering to activate launch control and still has that factory look to it!

I also got chance to make my own external wastegate dump tube. Was pretty straight forward just measured, cut and offered it up until it fit.20200513_150037.thumb.jpg.c3cbdb589ee40c8e4c708685436fc615.jpg

Also managed to do a slash cut on the end of the pipe, that was pretty tricky to do using a grinder!20200516_165944.thumb.jpg.7cd84cd01a3fc975d387e831414bd66c.jpg

Another thing i managed to get done was the rear light LED conversion. Now i originally started this 2yrs ago early on in this build thread 🤣, got side tracked and didnt finish it but now was perfect chance to do it.

I also decided to do the US rear brake light conversion so the fog lights also light up with the brake lights. I had to install diodes so that when the fog lights are switched on it doesnt light up all the brake lights now the wiring is joined.

1 thing i didnt want to do was have the fog lights light up with the side lights as i wanted those LED rings to stand out on there own. Im just waiting on some pulse width modulating boxes to dim them down a little as they are as bright as the brake lights at the moment, also the PWM boxes will allow me to use the LED rings as a brake light aswell as a side light!

I assume the waste gate tube will be sticking up through a new hole in the bonnet? 😁

Good to see an update, appreciate your efforts. A few videos of turbocharged IS300s have been creeping into my feed on YouTube recently; it's like they know...

Haha i would love to have it sticking up through the bonnet but there is just absolutely no room at all. I did consider maybe having it poking out of the drivers side wing but it would be pretty tricky to do. 

Ive still got loads more to post on here of stuff i have already done but the picture uploading situation is so frustrating!

Nice update Rob. Bedtime lock-down stories do need to be in picture-book format. Keep it coming when you can. I do like the rear lights.😎
