That guy is a very respected person in the Supra community, lol. He knows his stuff if TTE needs him to work out the bugs.

The car sure sounds goooooooood.

I wonder if you could fit a frankenstein Lexus hybrid in the IS200 shell for ultimate power??

i am actually toying with the supra engine idea............the 430 idea is feasable but all the 430 engines ive found are in front end smashes......plus as i was stateing to richie .....the guy who got the beast running doesnt even work for TTE so if they couldnt do it...................no normal tuning out fit will be able to do the conversion without teething problems...............gauntlet has been thrown in:rolleyes:

Hi guys. I know this is not Supra related but its close so I had to share it

with you guys. I have been away working under contract for TMG (Toyota

Motorsports GmbH). My trip to TMG in Toyota in Germany was a huge success

for me. Check out the links there are movies of me sitting in the project

car I was contracted by Toyota to get running for them in Germany. Some of

the movies of me with the car were taken by the boss of TTE (Toyota Team

Europe). All the others were taken by me with my little Sony digital camera.

There are also lots of pictures of inside TTE.

See the following links, with other movies of my project over there, a Lexus

V8 powered IS 200.

@lpher

Is the guys last name Riemer??

Mat, you can do the Supra swap much easier but a V8 with supercharger will be very cool too.

I've heard people talking about using the block of a toyota Tundra (a 4.7 liter I think) and putting a 400 or 430 head on it. The 4.7 block is much stronger thus can hold more boost. You can get these engines up to 5 liter if you wisch.

Imagine that, a 5 liter supercharged IS pumping out something between 450 and 600 hp.

That said, you can get a 2JZ-GTE and slap a single turbo on it with a front mount and a fuell system and be at 600 RWHP.
