Yes it would - hence the Aristo. It's a MK I shell on a Supra MK IV Engine.

But you'd need to upgrade the brakes, maybe the rack and shocks, as for the price, would not even like to guess. Getting hold of these engines is difficult I think but Mat would be the best person to ask about the price and mods needed as he's done it - well in an IS anyway.

You'd be better off buying the whole motor instead if you can find one at a good price.

thats been my problem paul............

the thing is i've got the motor the way i want it looks wise, but i'm at the point where i need MORE power.

what about the MK3 supra single turbo do you know if that'll fit.

i,ve already uprated the brakes all round and waiting for parts for the suspension.

Don't know about the MK III, maybe Mat will be able to offer some ideas on this for you mate.

MKIII was very different to the MKIV, completly different engine. Would be much easier to install the MKIV engine into the GS.

Have you thought about adding a turbo to the standard GS engine?

i have thought about that 1 but the mileage is 'clocking' on now and was looking at getting a lower mileage motor put in

thats the reason i ask as if i'm gonna put a lower mileage engine in lets go the whole way and chuck a TT in

any idea of what i'll need to complete the conversion ?

Let me check if there are any used Aristo TT (JZS147) engine available.

Note that you may also need to replace your transmission and your ECU.

Btw I once got a price for a N/A Aristo (JZS147) engine and those were not expensive (prob. around GBP400 - 500).

would that be a low mileage alex for the N/A engine as i could probably forget the turbo route and go nitros to give me the extra power what i want

could you find out how much inc shipping and PM me back
