  1. Your abs system decided to tale a !Removed! on you. It's definitely expensive,considering you have to replace the actuator which costs an arm and a leg. Sorry for your misfortunes. As to the guy whose pedal goes to the floor, get yourself a Mew master cylinder. The seals inside the master are leaking break fluid past them. Do it soon before the fluid gets to your booster and takes that out as well.
  2. Get the GTE version of it. Its a little more powerful and just as reliable. Gas mileage will not be your best friend, but having a 4 door Supra is fun. The longblock goes for a descent and affordable price as well. The swap itself is not difficult to do. You will NOT need a new transmission since the GE and GTE both share the same bolt pattern around the bell housing. Only thing is though, the GE transmissions hold up to 400 horse power before anything internal has to be done. While you have the motor out, might as well change the torque converter.
  3. Door lock actuator. Seems to be a feature with 98-05 GS. Its not a bad DIY. Theres a write up for it on this site or on club-lexus.
  4. x2 with you on that To the original post: have you done a tune up? Were you using 93 octane gas? How is your driving? The tests are done with someone who is light on the gas pedal. Just some thoughts
  5. have the pan for the dirty oil sit under the filter. youre gonna have to deal with the fact of it getting on some of the engine. use brake parts cleaner right after to clean it off
  6. sounds like an electrical problem to me. have the shop check the controls. is it making a noise when you turn the a/c on? maybe compressor going bad?
  7. im investing in a pair of these http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.scienceofspeed.com/products/exterior_performance_products/NSX/Work/single-piece/Emotion_XD-9/XD9BRONZE.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.scienceofspeed.com/products/exterior_performance_products/NSX/Work/single-piece/Emotion_XD-9/&usg=__vFzIwzeylDgGJ8ymhxIr0xuc_bE=&h=481&w=500&sz=97&hl=en&start=0&zoom=1&tbnid=UUVN-TYvvdKWQM:&tbnh=124&tbnw=128&ei=IwWpTdmzO4jRiAKv1ZSODw&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dwork%2Bemotion%2Bbronze%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DN%26biw%3D1024%26bih%3D677%26tbm%3Dis
  8. Work Emotion FTW... pricey, but they look super clean and flush
  9. anyone have any tips on how to put the strut back in? i took it out, replaced the spring and strut and now im having a hard time getting it in again.
  10. Did all that as well. Pretty much a new front end in parts. turned out to be exhaust heat shields. took it to a muffler shop and had them put on a new exhaust i ordered. sounds perfectly fine now. no clunks, rattles or anything.
  11. thats where i got mine. The moog ones ran me about 40 bucks if i remember correctly..

  12. Major thumbs up on that bud Going for 600 HP reliably and having it as a daily is going to be pricey. Now if you're going for a one time run and not caring about the motor, then yes the 600 HP is easy to achieve. Either way, good luck with the build. If you run into any problems or need parts, ask dcfish the walking encyclopedia/parts store :whistles:
  13. well ive heard that the bottom end is the same as a gte my freind just took his gte 2j apart and its the same im not sure wut size turbo yet but lookin for about 600 whp. looking to run about 12 psi, annd ita a gte head only same thing in the GE and GTE bottom end is the block and the crank. the rods and pistons are different. GTE bottom end has oil squirters for the pistons as well where the GE does not. I have taken apart both motors, and there is a difference. As far as the NA-T route, its a lot more pricey to go that way. Buying the GTE swap is cheaper.
  14. lower ball joints you can get from any major auto parts store. as far as the upper ball joints, you have to get the upper control arm with it as well. and about the part you are talking about, can you post a picture? would be a lot easier to help
  15. About 130ish :whistles: on the interstate in my 99 GS300 spanking a g35. I-64 in virginia. Four lane highway. Was around 11 at night. Barely any traffic or cops. Is it me or does it seem that G35's like to screw around with GS's? ---->G35 :chairshot: <---- LEXUS GS
  16. the ge bottom end holds up to 400 horses. what size of turbo, how much boost, are you planning to get it tuned as well? and you said a 2j supra head? is it the gte or the ge?
  17. same procedure. put a jack under the car. take off the wheel. loosen and remove caliper. take out old pads, lubricate the pins, put on new pads. and re assemble everything. check to rotors as well while youre at it.
  18. check them. take off all the tires and check the pads one by one. as far as the rotors, they could be warped. but yet again i cant teleport there and tell. the only way to find out is to check for yourself. if its on the original pads at 44k, then yes change them.
  19. Cheap is not a word for lexus bud. :chairshot: It all depends on preference. Do you want to stay factory or does aftermarket work as well. If factory, you can get the touchscreen/gps player that comes with the cars. That one runs around 1200. Where as aftermarket, you can get a descent one for about 800-900. Either way, go with quality. If funding is tight, save up. Dont go with garbage in a lexus. Garbage cd players belong in a honda
  20. Its your car bud, do what you think looks best. Doesnt matter on opinion. I would give it a try. I've seen just a lip kit on the front bumper. Looks descent in my opinion
  21. Welcome to toyota kevin. You will enjoy a lexus over a nissan anyday. Now to answer your questions. For the 98-05 lexus gs, they didnt come in a manual. Not in U.S anyways. I think Japan has them, but dont quote me on it. A 6 speed swap is a royal pain in the !Removed! on these. Require deep pockets as well. But hey if you have the money, then why not? I have seen one converted to a 6 speed, but the stock shifter was retarted long on it.lol. Im guessing you want to swap out the GE for the GTE? and if so, the auto swap is way cheaper. Best of luck to you with your lexus and welcome to the fo
  22. Sounds good to me. I like the Idea. They sell those on ebay?
  23. Gs recovered yesterday:) had my subs stolen out of it. Police found it in a walmart parking lot. guess someone wanted to joyride in it...
  24. not anymore, my gs was stolen a few days ago :cries: waiting for my insurance company to write me my check. gonna get a new gs and swap it out. hopefully this one will stay with me:/
  25. anyone know if the gte block bolts up to the ge tranny?
