Hi I love your
web site its great . I have been into
lexus v8s for about 5 years now my
first encounter was when a friend of mine wanted me to build his
new cobra replica . we tossed around
ideas for a few weeks while the chassis and body were being
built and decided on a 1uzfe with twin
turbos and what a great car it turned out to be has won 2
national cobra events show and shine and is very
compeditive on the track best ¼ mile
todate is 12.4 @118 mph traction was
a problem. The first pair of turbos
were t25 ‘s which made boost from
1800 rpm all the way to 5500 rpm but they were working real hard
a bit to small. We used water methanol injection. To control
intake temps. That was over 4 years ago last year we upgraded
the turbos and fitted a garret
turbos we used are t3 plain bearing
off a vg30det us spec. which has steel turbine wheels.
intercooler is a 600mm x300mm x 110mm .
rated around 800 hp. It makes 400 hp
at the wheels and 1400 ft.lbs of
torque on a dyno dynamics
dyno. Boost starts now at 3500 rpm
and goes all the way to 8000 rpm.
My cobra has
1uzfe as well but with a large single
rayjay turbo. And a trust drag
intercooler .also motec m48pro to
around 450 hp at the wheels and around 1535 ft/lbs of torque. It
is always under development next is a full race cobra with alloy
chassis all wheel drive 8 throttle body injection with 300 hp
and weighing in at 1450 lbs.
attached some pics for you too look
at. I also do a lot of engine swaps using the 1uzfe so far I put
them in a 80 series land cruiser / 4runner / a
/ and I am in the process of putting 12 in my ford
ute. I do wiring looms for
conversions using the crown ½ cuts as it has 2 computers 1 for
engine and 1 for trans so it is easy to use a manual
transmission with a stock ecu.
Any way I have
dribbled enough once again great site I just need more time to
get on the forums.
