LSX Lexus: Build Thread

Thought I'd share this build with you guys, I'll try to keep this updated

[QUOTE=eDavis;561112]Goal with the car is a well balanced total package. All around function and form street car and one of the best SC's ever built!

Lot's of friends helping along the way especially with a lot of custom parts in the works. Custom mounts, headers, exhaust and lots of other stuff you might have to stay tuned for lol.

Built not bought

Engine is 408 stroked, LSX based, high compression, e85 build and might add dope later on for fun. While I will keep some of the plans low key untill it's done here is a little teaser I will update here and there.


Here is my old setup some might be familiar with:





Worked good for what it was. At least for short periods of time lol


Now on to the REAL build

Right after pulling the 1JZ out I just had to set the mockup motor in to see what it would look like and how it would fit. Keep in mind this is with no mounts in this pic. Big thanks to JTran for giving me some time and space to pull the old engine



Moving to the new home base



Notice the clutter in the engine bay. Can't roll like that



Chassis harness/brake line tuck and ABS/TRAC delete





Wilwood proportioning valve




Keeping the same fuel pump setup as before just cleaned it up. Battery box and battery will be replaced





Racepak dash going to read directly off the AEM




BC coilovers thanks to Autrey at DWS Parts




This will replace my current Nardi woodgrain that just doesn't fit the style anymore




Plates to build the mounts off of






Beefy 6 speed and twin disc as well as subframe modifying started






Engine parts stacking up back home. Not pictured is stroker crank and rods, ARP rod bolts, Comp valve springs, retainers, shaft mounted rockers, Ferrea valves, top and bottom cometic gaskets, and ARP head studs














and the latest pics from SSA of the machine work and getting ready for paint







Drive shaft adapter



One piece aluminum shaft from a buddy




I love Greeeeeen!




More green! Ready to start assembly




























Getting things done the right way





Checking PTV and stuff



Closer







Found some more pics!











Been out of town for almost 6 months working now but should be back soon to start building more stuff and keep the progress going :dcn:[/QUOTE]
