  1. Hey there folks. Have a 1993 SC400, needs brake pads. Got OEM Toyota ones a couple years ago cheap, but I can't remember where I bought them from. Can anyone help me out? Thanks in advance!
  2. Need the money, gotta payoff the car! http://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/cto/1119434314.html 135k miles pics are before the DVD player, before someone hit it while parked and messed up a small area of the front bumper. Needs new rear tires very soon. Has 6 disc from ES in it.
  3. Our cars have no lifters... But I know reshimming the valvetrain is part of what they check for on scheduled maintenance.
  4. Update... haha. ~142, again, on the skyway, on the way to the casino. But this time in my room mate's 2004 GS300. It felt like there was plenty more to go around, and I was a little more daring in his car because the brakes are better, and there's less wind noise. And yeah, I was driving.
  5. Lol, everyone on here calls me Scott! It's scHott! haha. As in "shot". It's my last name hehe. So yeah, my car is totally being neglected because I got a job downtown and never drive it anymore. It hates me, I just know it.
  6. http://clublexus.com/forums/showthread.php...ht=interference http://clublexus.com/forums/showthread.php...ht=interference There ya go. Again, who knows, they could be wrong. And jibby, much respect, not trying to be a jerk.
  7. I actually think you are wrong Jibby. Only because I asked the same question awhile back and more than one person said it was non-interference. It just means that there's enough clearance that the piston won't hit a valve in any scenario, given a normal valvetrain setup. This however, is based on other forum viewer's replies to me when I asked the same question, so they could be wrong too. Damage from the timing belt flying around loose after it breaks could happen in any case I do believe though.
  8. TRYING... Keyword haha. Couple weeks ago, 140 on the Chicago skyway on the way to the casino. GOTTA ROLL THEM DICE!!! haha.
  9. Does anyone have any info with pictures/tutorials on doing the supercharger kit on an SC400? I'm interested now that I won't be driving the car nearly as much due to a new job downtown.
  10. Hah, now: 1993 sc400 then: 1994 Mercury Sable wagon 1991 LeBaron 1988 Ford Bronco II 1977 Olds Cutlass Supreme 2dr 1988 Dodge Diplomat 1986 Pontiac Fiero Those are all the cars I've owned ;)
  11. That's wild, wish there was an article on it.
  12. th400 on the 1uz? That's an interesting idea, has anyone done it?
  13. Aaaaaaaaaaand, just got the call. Turning in my resignation after lunch. w00t! Haha.
  14. Oh, and that's funny, because the thing I'm working on there is for BP. Some manifolds. And the problem: I think if you turn the motor towards opening the sunroof, it'll close the vent, then if you keep turning opens the roof. Not sure, but that's my guess.
  15. techinfo.toyota.com You gotta pay $10/day for access, but you can download the whole manual in a couple hours. I'm a steel detailer right now, but HOPEFULLY switching to drafting for a structural engineering firm here soon... waiting on reply to offer acceptance email...
  16. Sorry, I should have posted this earlier. Figured someone else would have answered you by now...
  17. So, I did a nice little dry asphalt donut last Saturday here at work, and the smoke had a green tint. Anyone else with these tires had this before? Kinda freaked me out.
  18. Go to the following URL for the best prices for Lexus OEM parts in the USA: http://www.trademotion.com/partlocator/ind...m?siteid=214082 I doubt that. They are a little lower on price. They're in FL though, and you're in Milwaukee, so your shipping is cheaper and quicker... Maybe I'll get a bidding war going on when I buy O2 sensors!
  19. Yeah, I probably will do it myself when it needs done. I'm kinda just planning on leaving it, and replacing it if it breaks. Call me lazy...
  20. This is why I haven't changed my timing belt yet... I hope you guys are right when you say it's a non-interference engine!
  21. I don't think they get warm enough to actually feel the heat... I could be wrong, but I don't think so. I will know tomorrow morning after I get to work haha.
  22. Your OEM jack should show where to jack from. There's notches underneath towards the outside of the car where the jack/stands should go.
