The flange holes are bored to 1.5" so you can use either mild steel or stainless steel 1.5" tubes. These flanges were designed by an enthusiast for fellow enthusiasts.

with the ALL new 1URFE, 2URFE and 3URFE engines.
No where else on the net that you will find so much information about our beloved old school V8. There are many forums on the net that is car specific. For example, they will focus on a car model like the Soarers or IS300. However, in this site we are engine specific. We focus on the engines, if you have or interest in the Lexus or Toyota V8, than you are in the right place.
Here we are a bunch of humble, low profile horsepower junkies and hotrodders trying to improve our beautiful automobiles into racing machines. In our forum we can discuss a wide variety of topics involving our flagship V8 cars. Our hottest topics are natural aspirated SC400/Soarer and LS400/Celsior engines and forced induction like turbocharged, supercharged and NOS. Recently, we have added a new category; Lexus/Toyota V8 Swap and Conversion. However, when we say Lexus-Toyota V8, we also include the 4.0 Liters (SC400, LS400 & GS400) 4.3 Liters (IS430?,GS430, SC430, LS430 and the LS460 with the 4.6 Liter) and 4.7 liters (4Runner, Tundra, Sequoia Land Cruiser, GX470and LX470) and perhaps the up and the coming Toyota Tundra 5.5 liters. Now we also heard the new rumor stating that the new 2006-2007 Toyota Supra will be powered by a V8 known as the 4uzfe with 4.6 liter. The all new Lexus LS460 will be using the same 4.6 Liter engine. We welcome the new owners and enthusiasts.

LS400 Brake Upgrade with Supra TT I am attempting to fit 1993-1998 Toyota Supra Twin Turbo brakes into my 1990 Lexus LS400. This has never been done before and I will share some of the difficulties and problems with this upgrade. Honestly, I am not sure if this will work or not and possible a custom bracket will be needed. I have done a through search on the net and ask my experts in many forums about this upgrade. So far, no specific answer. Therefore, this will be a trial and error project, so wish me luck.
