From stock. To now. Lexus SC300 build. Slow build. Lots of pics

Starting from the beginning:
Bought a completly stock 1JZGTE swaped 93 SC300. Still has AC and power steering. Automatic sadly but still fun. Ill start with the pictures. Excuse the poor quality for its my camera phone cause I never have a camera when I work on my car.

MORE PICS DOWN \|/


First Bath
















See stock





Picked up a set of wheels. They are G35 forged 19's. New Z rated 245/35/19 Rear tires . 225/35/19 Front tires. $600





Got new sunshade :)



New exhaust. Stock down pipe. 3 inch down pipe back through 3 inch high flow resinator. To a 3 inch Y pipe. To 2.5 inch dual pipes to the back with 3 inch tips. Sounds really good. I get complemented all the time on the sound. Nice deep tone. And definately spools a little faster.

Dyno'd Stock on 10 psi with 3 inch exhaust. 256whp 246wtq




Well found a dude that was IMO retarded that was selling a universal front mount intercooler for $220. It has 7 3 inch 90* bends, 2 2 foot straight 3 inch pipes, about 16 t bolt clamps, 8 blue 3 ply 3 inch couplers, and the beast of an intercooler that is 28 inches long and 5 inches thick with 3 inch inlets. All aluminum pipes with lips on the end of each pipe. He drove the kit 2 and a half hours to me for $220. Started installing right away. Ill let the pics talk.





Started bumper removal. Too many unnecessary bolts and clips.



Just another comparison


Mocking up the mounts for it


Mounted




Started mocking up pipes.
Tacked in place to be welded. Tig obviously. Notice how short and smooth it is and pretty much no chance of a boost leak.


Both pipes fabbed up and ready. Again they are a really short route and only use 4 couplers throughout the intercooler system so limted to boost leaks.


Both pipes in, Had to relocate battery to trunk. looks good though




Bumper back on and finished. Thinking about cutting the cross section in the middle. But i like how sleek it is and kind of sleeper like







Turbo's are a lot louder now and seem to spool quicker.

Other small thing installed just dont have pictures of are:
~Power Acoustic touch screen double din headunit. DVD. ipod. tv outputs.
~Turbo XS MBC still on WG pressure(10psi) for now though



So for now thats pretty much it. Bare with me. Dont have too much money to spend but i think im at a good start. More updates as more mods added.

thanks you.
i have people walking up to me now complimenting me on my car all the time on how the exhaust sounds and how hard it pulls. lol im used to it and ride in way faster cars so its funny to me.
but for being pretty much stock i ran door to door (or fairing w/e lol) with a 06-07 gixxer 750 from a 15mph roll till i hit speed cut at 115mph so i felt pretty good. just waiting and collecting parts to go single turbo now.
