  1. my 93 sc400's passenger door wont open from the outside, and the window wont go down past half way. the door pops open when i try to put the window open all the way. i have no idea why my car is doing this, i have never wrecked nor have i noticed any attempts to break in. what could be the problem, and how can i fix it mysef w/o having to go the dreaded dealer?
  2. yeah, the supra lights would prolly look like crap on the sc, but they look pretty good on the supra :D
  3. have any of you all heard of a supra tail light switch to a sc?
  4. i use the stp fuel injector cleaner....and i know u dont have to put it in w/an oil change, but its a good idea to make it the time to do it so u dont forget and get it done on a reg basis. its not something u need to do all the time unless u burn vegetable oil :D
  5. a little bit of chew never hurt no one :D
  6. what about the passport 8500??
  7. well, the sc isnt bad by any means, but the is has the low end advantage. it can accelerate much quicker in lower rpms, plus it hadldes like a go kart.
  8. yeah, i need help too. i got the bulldog security reomte starter for x-mas and tried to install it the other day. i couldnt figure out how to remove some of the dash pannals in order to expose the wires from the key hole. could anyone that has had this done or knows how to do it for that matter share some info.
  9. i agree w/ucf3 that there are quite a few differences b/t the two cars. the sc400 is so much more heavier, plus it lacks the advantage of the steering wheel shifters (which r really cool :) ). and yes, i took the is and sc out on some of the worst country roads in KY and agree that coming out of some killer turns, the is would have blown an sc out of the water. but when ur racing from the intersection line when the light turns green, id rather be in the v8.
  10. i have always used 93 for my 1993 sc400. the engin is still running quiet and strong at 112,379 miles. i occationally add a bottle of octane boost on top of the 93 gas in the winter for a little fun :D . also, its a good idea to add fuel injector cleaner every time u get ur oil chnaged.
  11. the is will beat the sc to sixty, but what about 100??
  12. dont run an IS 300 for pink slips, you will be walking! is this a personal experence??
  13. is ur camrey stock, or do u have some performance mods done to it? i have driven that same model car and agree that it is surprisingly fast, but i still would rather have the fun little steering wheel shifters on the IS.......Does anyone know if a v8 version of the IS??
  14. i took my 93 sc400 to get its fluids and breaks changed by my local dealer. they didnt have my car for me in time, so they gave me a loner.....a 2003 IS300. i had the car for about 3 days. i am convinced its the quickest little 4-door on the market. i got my car back today and went drving. it was then i realized that the sc still kicks the is's !Removed!. have any of you all had similar experiences or care to share some stories about trading cars for a couple days and deciding if u need a new vehicle :D ?
  15. thanks for the info. do u know how much im looking at for the sc kit and how easy it is to install?
  16. i have gold sc400 badges on my blk 93...and i want silver. does anyone want to trade, if so how do i remove my badges properly. if no one wants to trade, where can i get the silver badges cheap?
  17. ok, iv been hearing turbo this and turbo that for the sc300. i'v also been hearing a little supercharg this and that for the sc400. my 93sc400 seems to beg for power and puts it to use when i mash the gas. what do i need as far as exhaust systems, suspension tweaks to make my car not only compatable with a supercharger, but efficient as well. o yeah.....where can i get the supercharger :D ?? ps. i really appreciate the amout of info on this site, it has brought me not only closer to my car, but closer to the sound barrier as well :) .
  18. eXo, what size wheels do u have in ur pic there, and where can i get em?
  19. i like the sound of a turbo or supercharged engine. my sc400 has almost zero haul in the low rpms, but it does pull pretty hard at about 3200. does anyone have a good tip or story bout a supercharged sc400 that they'd like to share?
  20. that noise u it more of a grinding or a rubbing....i have the exact same prob, except my car has never been in a wreck. it only happens at about 1200-1300 rpms in D. is this a common occurance w/a high milage lexus? im taking the car to Lexus in a couple weeks to have service done and new gonna have it checked out, but i do want to know if im gonna b spending a lot of $ to fix it. also, my trac light comes on after a few mins of driving...what does this mean?
  21. my 93 sc400 had its timing belt replaced right at 100k miles...but im no expert on when the belt should be replaced. im right at 110,300 right now and the engine is practically silent w/only having that belt replaced and good service records. good luck w/ur car, its a great vehicle.
  22. jakino, that looks pretty good....did u install it yourself or did u have it installed? if u did it yourself, are there any tips to installing the unit successfully? also, will removing the stock unit just to run wirles behind the dash activate some anti-theft device and runin the unit even if im just trying to get behind it?
  23. my 93 sc400 w/nakamichi sound is pretty good.....however i would like to install an in-dash dvd player and new stereo headunit. the factory dash bothers me in that the whole thing is integrated b/t stereo and airconditinoer. i want to put in the new stereo/dvd syster w/o runining the visual appeal. has anyone replaced the stock stereo and like the way it looks?
  24. i drive a 93 sc400.....very nice vehicle. i went to my dealer to get my 3k mile oil change and browsed the lot. there was a beautiful 2000 silver sc400 w/35k miles. i asked the dealer what the main differences were and he said that it met new safety standars, new shifter, new leather style, and a new 5sp auto tranny. is this car any faster than my 93 b/c of the tranny, and if so, can i switch mine out?
  25. thanks, now that we think the wheels will fit, does anyone know where i can pick up used or discounted is300 wheels w/or w/o tires?
