    SC430 swap

    hey guys, I've got a friend who is interested in some extra power in his SC430. Among the option of tuning the 3uz we can also swap it out for an IS-F engine. That would be a better option I guess so we can keep everything stock. Only thing I am afraid of is if all the functions in the car...

    Variable drive supercharger

    What are the developments currently on the market for this? I've seen two speed drives and some variable drives but none are available to the (after)market yet. Would be nice to drive the supercharger the speed you need, and not bleed off the boost with a recirc valve

    UZ oil pump failures (cracked rotors)

    hi guys, I was playing with a few engines I have disassmbled here in my workshop. I got the RB26 engine, 2JZ engine and the 3UZ engine. I removed and took apart all the oil pumps. The RB oil pumps are known to crack (the inner rotor) because of the big free play this rotor has on the crank...

    Anyone with some dimensions on the 2UR-GSE

    It seems the 2UR-GSE engine is currently the Lexus V8 with the highest potention, because of the 'G' design heads. Anyone have their dimensions and how do they compare (dimension wise) to the UZ series? Are all UR engines the same size? As there are already a few 1UR and 3UR engines floating...

    Torsen into the LS400 UCF10 / UCF20

    Ok this is a difficult mod, but this weekend I got the confirmation it is possible. We had to machine the LS400 pumpkin to accept a torsen locker, also put in the 3.2 gears from a GS400 5 speed. Pretty much custom. If one of you guys can host the pics I can put them on here.

    What sparkplugs are you guys using with some boosted applications? Do you go one or two ranges colder or stay the same? Also do you go 'back' to copper or go with irridium or platinum?

    Anyone has the part number for the SC300/400 front windshield (front window). We converted a RHD Soarer to LHD using a wrecked SC400 but on the donor the windshield was gone and the RHD windshield is shaped slightly differently because of the window wipers! I can't find the part number in my EPC...

    Crank manufacturers

    What manufacturers should I ask to make a flat plane crankshaft? I found Arrow and farndon in the UK and I also found Cola crankshafts and Sonny Bryant Racing in the USA. Arrow charged an arm and a leg for a crank (or two legs) so I'm looking for alternatives.
