  1. FYI -

    You might want to update the ( 1. 90 - 06 Lexus LS400 / LS430

    2. 07 - 09 Lexus LS460 / LS460L

    ) menu on the LS460 pages to include

    the 2010's too, there wasn't any real change, probably won't be for 2011 either.


  2. HI,

    I was wondering if this site (Lexus Owners Club) is sponsored by or any way affiliated with Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc.?

    hi can you please delete my account, i have no way of sending you msg thanks.

  4. I suppose I'll check with Carson Toyota and Elmhurst Toyota. They have been reliable in the past. If only time could slow down enough for me to make a phone call and order some freakin parts... Got something special lined up... might have to get more active. How's things been round here?
  5. It could be done. The answers to all your questions are yes. Of course there will be fabbing and wiring issues. Any swap will require these things. But the 7m is inferior to the 1jz or 2jz. The 7m has potential but no where near as well developed an engine. You can bolt a 2jz in directly with oem motor mounts. Still need to to some work though. Since you have the roller cheap, it may be a good idea to do a turbo converted NA motor swap/auto tranny. It seems you are on a budget and that will probably be the cheapest route depending on how fancy you want to get.
  6. Hello all, long time no speak... Coming to be due time to do the water pump. See image for source and prices. Any advice on cooler operating T-stat? Found a 180 degree at car-stuff.com. Not sure I got all the orings gaskets necessary. Will hit the shop manual here in a minute. Will probably do the timing belt tensioner and t-belt if it looks worn. She's got 76k miles on her still... 1995 SC3. Anyone found any better prices? Sources?
  7. An led for duty cycle. I see. Never was exposed to that sort of thing. Cool stuff. Ok, so the output for injector pulse is staying on. Swap the ecu. Let us know how it turns out. I guess if the engine could stay running with the injectors always open it would smoke like mad. Kind of interesting it even stays running though. No you should not need to change the injectors when you change the ecu as long as the ecu is the same model number/model year. Avoid a 97+ ecu. The rest should work. But consult the parts supplier to be sure. I thought the vvti Sc3's had 6 coils. They are 3 coil wasted spark? News to me...
  8. What is a pulse light? Check the continuity on the injector. See if you can find a donor ecu to test with. Never got to experience such a thing before. But if 3 injectors are on/stuck open - why would that make smoke out the back constantly? It should kill/flood the engine. Smoke out the back is oil or coolant or both...
  9. I have no knowledge of this subject at hand. But perhaps one point should be clarified as requested. Apparently, there is a labeling and coding company with the name of CoastalTek. This is not to be confused with CostalTech. Best of luck to all of you with the resolution of any issues. But it should be known that CoastalTek and CostalTech are two different companies and as far as I can tell offer two different services. Just a requested clarification. Good luck.
  10. I have a TRD black wheel for a supra TT sitting here. Never did get around to swapping it though. Read enough about the job. What did you want to know my man?
  11. No problem. We can trim it up. As far as your question about 2 first pages, I'm not quite following. Maybe try the website feedback/suggestions forum. Someone may have some input on that for you. Welcome to the club.
  12. Makes me reconsider selling my baby... at 75k on the ticker, it's a hard choice... I can't believe you found one with 16.5k on the ticker. That is amazing!!! Please post pics.
  13. I had a problem back in the day with my old 93. The ciggy lighter was shorting and had a bad ground. Blew fuses until I got in there and repaired the wiring.
  14. is it flanged? can you attach a picture? never seen inside the engine bay of a 430. or at least close enough to get a glimpse of the 02s
  15. Don't know man. Been a long time since I was here too. Welcome from member number 16 or something like that... woop woop wooop
