    Hi all from the Toon (Newcastle uk )
    am new to this forum so please be gentle with me .
    I have just bought a ls400 1993 that came to me for the right price ,just bought it for the engine to put in my 1955 ford 100e.which I have just converted to turbo diesel ,took me ages to do but the grunt of the v8 was just to good to resist so oot with the diesel and in with the v8
    just wondering if anyone can give me a heads up of what to do or not to do while dismantling the Lexus , not sure what part of the harness I will need and do these cars have an ecu for the gearbox.
    thinking of just using the engine auto box and standard ecu and harness, any help will be great :D

    Welcome aboard! My brother lives up in Newcastle, but I'm nearer Newcastle-under-Lyme :)

    @gloverman has some excellent wiring instructions and engine prep guides that he sells. Certainly worth looking at.

    I've got the engine and gearbox out of my LS400, so not much further ahead than you!

    "I've got the engine and gearbox out of my LS400, so not much further ahead than you!"
    I can still rev the crap out of mine ...ahh the grin factor is great, I had a crappy day at work the other day ,so came home and had a good rev of the lexus and suddenly I felt all better hehe.
    any chance you can tell me the dimention of engine at the widest point with zorst manifolds on , not even sure at this point if engine will fit between the chassis rails.
    thanks

    Sure, I'll have a measure up. Probably won't get down to the workshop until Monday, though.
