Sweet New Whip...

Here's my new car a: 1997 Lexus Sc400 Manual

So i got this thing from a guy down at San Antonio wich was a little to far but it was way better and had a way reasonable price than most Sc's arround dallas. This babe costed $4.000 bucks wich was pretty fair consideing it had less than 130k miles, it is a manual and has some mod's i was ok with it. About the car it's a 97 Sc 400 with a manual trans and grey interior (lower trim but harder to found) the 1UZ feels amazing but some little stuff would help it, the trans and clutch are smooth AF,the Suspensions ride good but the it isnt drift friendly, interior is in prime condition resuming its a nice car the only faults were a bad o2 sensor wich i fixed the moment i bought since we met at a autozone(the seller was nice to pay it for me)and the steering rack leeks a little but thats easy to fix. As for Mods the car has Motegi wheels, a Custom 2.5 stainless exhaust, Lowered on Tein springs and a Vertex lip.






Economy

SC400 -V$4.000
O² sensor FREE

Nice one ! , I had one of those but I had the JDM version (Toyota Soarer), with the 1jz-gte engine. I put some coilovers, bucket seats, a nardi steering wheel, and some things like that and I really enjoy it! , I hope you enjoy this car! , The sc is a comfortable car, and has enough power, although if you want to go to the track, get some coilovers and some brakes, because the original suspension is very soft! , but if you want it for daily use it is convenient to leave it stock!

Soarers are sick but sadly toyota only gave us the NA 2J and the 1jz or 2jz swap on this were going to be cool but i wont take that route i wannna rip this v8 and then do something about it.As for suspension when i show my other car you will realise that afther dailying that thing dont care about comfy suspensions and the brakes on mine are still good but i think i may upgrade them too.

Good deal on that SC400! JZ engines are awesome like you said but a V8 makes it a bit more American haha. Also i have a SC300 drag car in Oklahoma, i might still have some parts laying around if you'll need any.

Presenting: My Actuall Nice Car...

Here's other car: My Loved S13 Coupe .
For now i'll give you guys a quick little introduction this is my 92 240sx coupe wich i got as gift when entered college and built it as part of my graduation projects it was close to been finished but i changed some of my plans but about this and a full breakdown on his build will stay for another post.





Already modded the Lexy...

So today i did three things: Frist a meeting with the guys that work for us at japan the as we woked saturday and did a 8 hour roadtrip yesterday me and my friend(The other owner of the company) went to one of our partners junkyard that works with sport cars and other cars with parts that are commonly tuned. There i bought a set of knuckles (front and rear for the lexus) Some 18 work meisters that he got with streched direzzas(70% thread left) an something special that i'll reveal when the time comes (it costed 300 bucks can you guys find out what it is? P.S its for the SC).
Afther that me and my maye went to our shop because he decided to give me a set of used coils and a R34 brake set for some money that he owed me then we lunched and went home to install those parts on the lexus.Everthing was pretty easy and also because we splitted jobs so we managed to finish everything by 6:30 Pm, and mow the lexus only needs: A tune up, a adjust on those coils and a full service wich i didnt make since i'll be seafoaming this engine but i wanna have about 1/8 of a gas tank so i can circle the product fast and service the engine right afther. I've been on such a hurry to mod this car because i signed for a drift event this Saturday.







Economy

Junkyard bill -V$1.500
Brake pads -V$150
Brake Fluid -V$50

P.S: im selling all the parts that were taken off the lexus (brakes, Tein springs with oem Supra turbo tockico Shocks and wheels(with tyres till sunday)

V8s are better and cheaper than na 2j's and the 1uz-fe is actually more capable than a 2jz-ge. As for the parts i'm interssed let me know what you got

Those Meisters would look a lot better if you got spacers for them, it would look really nice

About that S13...

So this is mine 92 240sx SE coupe, wich was a good daily but while i was on the college i started transforming it as i wanted to do some projects for my curriculum. the first was the 1.5jz swap wich i used to show my idea that some brands lose rescouces as they forgot looking at what they have on the shell. the second was about suspension wich involved the car getting a full custom adjutable suspension that i projected.And the last on the big stuff was th full integrated chassis with a rollcage tubed front and rear and bashbars for enegy dissipation.this car was built by part of the college funding and my friend wich was always allowing me to take some parts of the shop.
