They did it on TLC's program called "Rides"- to a newer IS-300. I believe, they dropped a Supra six speed tranny, with a LS-400 V8 along with the LS's computer which had to be reprogrammed to trick the computer somehow?? They didn't go into great detail about it, unfortunately! I believe it was Chip Foose who designed it, and had his engineer go over- correct me if I'm wrong. Sounds very expensive, and you may as well by a Supra.

93 Lexuses <<JILL>> indicates in their signature that they have a manual in their ES300.

manual was a factory configuration in the 93 ES300.
