  1. You do know a kit like that, especially from Vertex would cost in the neighborhood of 7,000? Then to fit it would cost 1-2,000...I dont think its worth it. You dishing out the 10grand for this?
  2. Phillips, but definitely dont get 8000k's. you'll be doing yourself a favor from 4100k - 5500k. good luck. If you need any other help, you could pm me.
  3. Clicking noises when you attempt to start the engine right? It could be the starter, try a mechanic for professional advice first.
  4. www.lexuspros.com One of the best prices I've seen...
  5. Just go out to maybe pepboys or local rice shop and grab some 1156 white lights. Simple.
  6. Well, Im guess you're not really into Supras or Sc's if you want to mix n match body parts. You dont need an open mind for this, Most of us guys already know it would be nasty and nobody would do it...its pretty much common sense. B)
  7. www.lexuspros.com their ECU gives exactly what you're looking for. expensive? yes, but as many, many Lexus owners say..."you gotta pay to play" good luck.
  8. Is it possible that you had free'er flowing exhaust piping? maybe 3 inch piping? anything over 2.5inches for our 3.0 straight six's would be too big and we WILL lose low end torque. I've known people who went with 2.5inch piping on SC's and love their mod very much. B)
  9. since you're both in California. Contact my friend Ken @ performancetun1ing@hotmail.com he'll take good care of you....seriously. this guy is insane, he hooks up EVERYONE!
  10. first of all, get the lexuspros ECU upgrade, thats a 30hp GAIN right there!! after that, go ahead and get some cheap mufflers and bring it to a muffler shop for some custom piping. Now that you've got the exahust and ecu covered, go for the intake, BFI is the way to go; the link has got to be around here somewhere. You should be expecting 50hp with what I just advised you to do...GOOD LUCK MY FRIEND AND KEEP THOSE MODS COMIN!
  11. just wire it so it stays on and change to a white 1156 bulbs. tada! instant foglight!
  12. i didnt have to deal with my own insurance, my car was crashed into but the other party is at fault...
  13. might want to call your insurance company and ask them if they will cover it first. And if they wont, you might want to try saying that you'll call your lawyer, they should give in.
  14. whats up guys, yea they look awesome, my first sidemarkers cleared were a 6/10 success/satisfactory and I already have someone interested in buying them. My second, third, fourth sets etc...etc... would look even better now that I know what I need and know what to do. I have a picture but it is not from my car, so I'll see if I could post it up. Since I only have 1 set of original sidemarkers right now, I'll need some of you to ship me your orangef markers and I will turn those around to you. Kind of a pain in the butt if you ask me... If you want to take this DIY upon yourself, just say so and I'll give you both pieces for 15 bucks shipped. if any of you are on aim, catch me on xoticsc and I could show you picture there in private, we could also talk about the sidemarkers.
  15. I also made my own with custom polycarbonate plastic, I have a few more pairs just sitting on my desk waiting to be siliconed to some freshly dremeled sidemarkers, I'll give these to you for 35 shipped and your sidemarkers in return. contact me @ suprastyle86@yahoo.com
  16. no matter what, how hard you clean, buff, shine, polish. They will never look like a fresh set of brand new headlights. You gotta pay to play, get some new heads, everybody loves em!
  17. 95 = 96, plugs for 95 - 00 are same. It is plug and play unlike the 92-94 which had different lighting layout. IMHO, 95-96 has the coolest tail lamp. ← slightdev, im going to have to disagree with you, the wiring harnesses of 95-96 are not the same as the ones from 97-00. on the 95 tails there are 3 tail lights, and on the 97-00 there are 2, not big difference but whatcha gonna do ;P jk man, just letting you know. jzz30, all you gotta do is get behind that cluster and take out the bulb :P
  18. sorry, im going to make this quick with no care for grammar. yes its possible, i have a set of tail lights chilling in a box in my room ready to go onto a car (not my car, not yet, its at the shop cause of accident =/) but yea, all you need to do is take off the plastic trim where the trunk closes on, rip out some carpet (not literally rip, but you really gotta pull on them to get them off from the little yellow wierd plastic screws) after the carpet is out of the way, there are 4 bolts per tail lights, feel around with your hands, you'll eventually get them. there are 2 parallel bolts and washers on each side of each tail light. after the bolts come off, there is a white connecter that is keeping the tail lights connected to the car (you gotta pull on these things real good, and some cursing might come out of your mouth ) after that just yank on the outside of the tail lights where you see the seal that is stuck to the car. after that everything is reverse, HAVE FUN GOOD LUCK!!!!
  19. teins arent really up there with JIC or HKS. but they all do the same thing so it doesnt really matter. I'd probably suggest the Tein flex of the JIC, HKS if want some hardcore stiffness for any type of racing.
  20. Filters are filters, they all basically do the same job at the same flow. Everything you are worried about is in your head. trd, k&n, blitz, they all do the same thing. if you're cheap, go with the k&n, if you want a tad better flow, im sure the trd or blitz are designed a LITTLE bit better. Just a l different way to see things, this basically goes the same for many modifications that are made for your car.
  21. Do comfortreads come in 19 inch application? :D B)
  22. I get this problem too. I just want to get the real issue addressed. So is it the tc slipping, or is it the ecu? I just had my car diagnosed this past weekend, the mechanic said he cleared the code but my trac off and engine light just came on again and went off toward the end of the day. I am actually a little bit afraid it is my alternator, alot of the times when I have left my car just there for maybe more than half hour, I get back and turn the key, I get nothing, second time is usually a charm but this morning it took 5 times. My mechanic could not find out what the problem was. Do I need a new battery? what is happening to my power?
  23. I agree with dave matthews. Lexus Pros would be a good place to get brand new headlights.
