VEHICLE STORY

I bought this completely stock one owner 2002 IS300 in the summer of 2014. It's really tough to find a clean 5-speed example of this car and while it's fun to drive in stock form, the chassis is just begging for more horsepower. I ordered a jdm 2jz-gte from an aristo and that will be going in shortly. As for the transmission, I found a mk3 supra r154 5-speed unit that is hopefully in decent shape (internally) My goal is 450-500whp with the stock motor with some refreshed seals like the front and rear main seals, a billet timing belt tensioner and new cam seals. An upgraded single turbo will be added as well as a mess of other parts. We'll see how it goes.
