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:

LSX Lexus: Build Thread 25997_105670429457994_100000451135815_142550_1912964_n

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
