    Hey guys, I'm not sure if there is a problem with my car, but when I give it 3/4 throttle, it seems to accelerate faster than full throttle, but since the computer is detecting 3/4 throttle, it shifts into second an stops the power flow. Is anyone experiencing the same thing? Also, I took...

    Car of Choice for 1UZFE Swap

    I'd like to see one in an s2000, MX-5 miata, or some other little roadster. I've seen MX-5's with Ford 5.0 HO's in them. The rumble from those cars is wicked, then they take off and leave two strips of rubber for 20yds!! It's freaking awesome! Imagine one of those passing you on the highway...

    liquid coming out of exhaust

    it's water. The chemical process transforms exhaust gases from deadly pollutants to "clean H20." It's just a by-product..... no worries.

    Man, that'd be like Frankenstein in a tuxedo. Powerful, poorly put together, but with style.

    American V8 Swaps into Lexus?

    Hey guys, I just want to say that I love my sc400, and my 1uz is a rev monster! I got my sc with 110k on it, and around the 118k mark, the waterpump went, taking the timing belt with it. In order to do a reliable fix, belts, waterpump, cam tensioners ..... etc had to be replaced. My brother...

    Project SC400TT

    Can't wait to see what kind of reliable HP this thing puts out. Where is the turbo going to sit? Will it be relocated like the ls400t?

    1UZFE Valve Springs Upgrade

    Just a thought... I wonder if there are any "Beehive Springs" that might fit our cars. I've heard great tales about these, mostly from LS1 guys.......

    I need help!

    GrahamB - My ignorant mechanic told me that no one sold the top tanks...... and that he wouldn't want to use a used one for warranty issues.... Another quick update. My radiator was supposed to have been delivered on Friday, but the radiator that they delivered was damaged, so now I have to...

    Custom Headlights

    Soooo pretty! I'm done painting the chrome piece. Rather than paying a a$$load for rechroming plastic, I went ahead and covered it up (removing the rust before of course.) I used high gloss engine paint with ceramic. The metal piece that usually sits in front of the projector had to be...

    I need help!

    The engine runs great, no damage to the pistons. A new problem arose though, busted radiator. I ordered a new one from radiator.com $144 with lifetime warranty, ships today, arrives tomorrow. Very good customer service, HIGHLY recommended. I will later post in a different Forum area...

    I need help!

    Woooo Hooo! I finally got a chance to drive the two hours to check out my car. I finally found where the water is coming from exactly, and I found why the engine won't start. The water was leaking from the water pump, running down the side of the engine( around the heads) then dripping to...
