Think it would be a bit of a job IMHO. Prob be a waste of resources.

Do you know the history of the turbos ? they are ceramic and known to fail after 70/80k miles.....

Got some stuff lying about which may interest you...

No. Exhaust manifolds have a different bolt pattern.

they are cheap enough to risk and its just the chance to lay down the basics and have a play. Refurbing the turbo's not a problem either if i can get hold of the parts, i have the technology :D.

At the min i'm not looking to spend 5-6k maybe next year rather than buy something else minds not made up yet :winky:

I was looking for this URL: http://www.clubna-t.com/

The Americans do a lot of turbo conversions on N/A Supras and SC300s, not sure about IS/GS300s.

There are a few "NA-T" Supras on http://www.mkivsupra.net/.

Unless you are particularly attached to the GS it's easier and cheaper to buy an Aristo TT.

Thats what i was going to say,get a Aristo for how cheap they are to buy and youve got a good base to mod from.

its not about easy its about making it your own :D the sc300 and the n/a supra are the same engine as the GS so it should translate

In an ideal world eventually i will get hold of a 2jz-gte but that has to wait so i want something to play with as i'm getting bored

If i went for a newer motor i would go for the supra, the lex will always be there to play with though. It would make sense to get the base and work from it but wheres the fun in that

ok not to worry a few things have resolved themselves as the turbo's turned up today. However theres a bloody big crack in the flange courtesy of DHL who will be getting some shortly

if i get this up and running does it mean i can use the aristo TT downpipes and decats?
