Hi Guys,

I know I just bought my IS300 on Monday and out of pure curiosity been looking at future tuning options. My sponsor for my drag racing Skyline GTR (www.teamgtr.com) has a Mk IV Supra 2JZ-GE engine with a Turbo conversion, not the 2JZ-GTE engine. From what I've gathered the 2JZ-GTE isn't a suitable swap for the IS300 as I quote "nothing fits" but how about the 2JZ-GE with a single Turbo conversion? Are the engine mounts etc the same, or will they need to be custom fabricated? Gearbox - I'm guessing Auto is no good?

I'm really tempted to take this engine off his hands, comes with HKS FCON V PRO...as well - please talk me out of it by telling me its not possible!

Cheers

Shah

One of the other more knowledgeable members will have to answer this one I think, there aren't that many tuned IS300s - I can only think of one supercharged IS300 that's on here.

Worth looking on the US site (my.IS) as they've done a lot more with the 300 than over here :)

Try also www.isfanatics.com. Regarding the 2JZ-GTE motor you are wrong my friend. The motor fits fine in the IS200 engine bay. The only thing is that you have to change the oil sunk with an IS300 motor (which you have already). In Greece there are already 5 IS200 which have a 2JZ-GTE motor fitted in the engine bay. All them work fine without problems. Here is one of the Greek tuners who performed this installation.

Use google translator to read what is written. You can also search in Australia. They are quite a few tuners who have done this mod. But I believe it is much easier and maybe cheaper to turbocharge your IS300. Many many USA members have done it.

Well I can't persuade him to split the engine so I'm looking into SRT Turbo Conversions, but since I'm running an auto box I'll probably end up swapping that for v160 6 Speed. Its a slippery slope and I don't want to get started on another project car!

Here is my other car.. as you can see have plenty of experience with RB26's and although your probably joking around with me.. I'm going to look into it, I can get hold of an RB26 + RB25 RWD Gearbox quite easily :)

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
