Recommended Posts

I was sent this email by JAVIER QUIROS and thought i should post these pics.. this is a very nice machine!

Here goes!

I have been looking at your nice IS 200 and IS300 that are being modified in your country,and I just want to show all the funs of Lexus the craziest and most succesful conversion that we made in Costa Rica by the TOYOTA DISTRIBUTOR,PURDY MOTOR SA.

-Original twin turbo eng from a 1997 Supra

--Modifications made:

-ABS system had to be removed to another space

-A/C system had to be replace to a new position inside the hood

-Intercooler adapted

-Gear box mountings,modified

-All the electrical system from Supra had to be installed in the Lexus

-3" mufler

If you want more information,please contact me.The car is a bullet,goes from 0-60 MPH in 5.7 seconds,and now we are changing computer and adding more boost,so it should be a little faster


Enjoy the pictures if you want more let me know

Here is the pics in the gallery

my newest time.. got it today... this is the first time taken since installation of fuel pump.

Does this classify me as a fast auto IS200??

0.7sec gap between me and supercharged now.. :D

I will have to get one of those apexi timers, it will be more accurate than my TAG, will probably sharpen my times a bit:smilegrin:I start watch, go, then look down for 60mph then stop it, probably slower than actual time.TRD328, that is one fast IS auto, well done mate
