  1. well..my advice would be to find a very good local shop that deals with imports and just forget the dealer...most dealerships ive had to deal with just want your money...so maybe you could find a good cheaper local shop and get it fixed for relatively cheap
  2. you are talking about a 2jzgte swap right? and ive looked into it quite a bit...just stick with the v8 (at least i would)
  3. to change the color of a car, and to make it look right is going to cost quite a bit. i would ask around and find a good local shop. DO NOT go to a place like Maaco, or any chain for that matter. i had mine repainted the same color and it cost 2K (and this was a really good deal, my other quote from the "popular" shop was $3500)
  4. dont listen to this shawngs300 guy...he is just bitter cause he got a lemon...lexus is great, and has outlast any car anyone of my family has ever had.
  5. LOL...i have gotten so freaked out by seeing a black car with ski racks in my rear view...lol
  6. update on mod mileage...i just got 19.7! all city and yes i have been driving it like i stole it! lol (guess the exhaust really did help)
  7. lol...funny you would mention that...i had a k40...but my music was just a tad 2 loud...and i didn't hear it in time...(it wasn't that loud...i had the volume on the radar turned all the way down)
  8. thanks, and yea they were seized and stripped...but one side was bent over from a tow or something. and no is doesn't sound like a bee on steroids lol (trust me..i would have taken it off the day i got it if it did!) its got a nice low tone to it. -preston
  9. ok...not new...but new paint. i saw it online and loved the look...let me know what you think. before and after. (i had painted it silver..didn't come that way) and my new hks hi-power exhaust. (that stupid hitch took like 3+ hours to get off!! lol) black_3.bmp old_g.bmp hks.bmp old_e.bmp
  10. ok...ill let him know...but he's had/has worked on his cars for years...and he didnt seem to think it was that simple....well hopefully it is
  11. yea..i know what you mean...i don't hate cops or anything like that...just some can get on my nerves sometimes...and yea if i wasn't speeding i wouldn't have gotten pulled over...but in my defense..its one of those roads that if you aren't going at least 10 over you get someone up your butt the whole time! lol
  12. just a clarification..the jerk does not occur during gear changes, and it does not affect the acceleration.
  13. Ok, so when i let off the gas and then hit is again real quick..(like in heavy traffic) sometimes i get a little jerk from right under me. the transmission shifts perfectly smooth..so what do you guys think this is?
  14. Like 36,000...guess i should have said that...so its kinda weird..
  15. hey guys, my grand dads 92 Es300 (which sits most of the time) has a transmission problem...when you shift from P to Drive..it makes some kind of noise..like its slipping..(from how he described it, it almost sounded electrical, sound wise) but when he puts it into low gear, then shifts up thru the gears, it works fine...any ideas? Thanks
  16. ok..so ive been wanting to install some headers on my gs300...but it really seems like a pain with the o2 simulators and everything...and i was wondering why you even need o2 sims? they say the check engine light will come on...but i dont really understand why..(and this is keeping the stock y-pipe...so it doesnt have to do with the cats) any input would be great thanks
  17. Anyone know how much hp gain can be expected from the Brian Crower camshafts? thanks
  18. hey man...do you think you could get a side shot of your car on level ground...just to see what it looks like...also..im looking at getting some rims later..(whenever i need new tires...1-1/2 yrs..) but i want something light..im all about performance..not show. do you know how much the stock rims weigh? and do you know of any good lightweight rims? (17-18") thanks
  19. yea me 2...i was havin a pretty rough day yesterday...death in the fam...guess i was takin it out on ya..sorry...anyways...i dont know much about the 430...how is the engine (reliability wise) compared to the 2jz?
  20. the thing is...our drive way is always full of cars! a f-150 and expedition..and the drive way can only hold 4 cars...so i normally have one side to myself..but it is really steep, and there is a mailbox on the side i would have to swing wide into it...i normally park in the street, but our neighbors have backed into a friends car, and the mailbox twice! so i get a little nervous parking there... oh and btw..hav2spool..you said you have the tanabe springs right? how do you like them and what do you think about eibach?
  21. well i know the guy that pulled me over was just tryin to hit a quota...i mean..who else would be out at 11 or so at night in the rain, in the middle of nowhere??
