LEXUS 1UZFE MODS FORUMS - Post Questions Here For Quick Answers!

I am looking for a company, association or any automotive manufacture to pimp my ride.  I have an old school Lexus LS400.  It’s the first year model with over 200k miles.  The silver paint is showing its age and the interior need lots of work along with the audio system.

Here is what I have right now.

Engine & Drivetrain:
+ Custom Ross 8.5:1 forged Pistons with Chrome Moly Rings
+ Custom forged steel rods
+ Federal Mongol Mains and rods bearings
+ ARP Rods Bolts
+ ARP Main Studs and Bolts

+ Supra Twin Turbo Valve Springs, Retainers and Locks
+ Custom Ported heads with complete 3 angle valve job
+ EGR Delete Kit

+ Lextreme Performance Torque Converter
+ Blue Print and Balanced

+ Tial 50mm Blow Off Valve
+ Garrett GT40 with Precision .68 T04E Housing (Bad Customer Service Stay Away From Them)
+ Custom Made 3.5″ x 11″ x 27″ intercooler
+ Custom Inlet pipes with T-Bolts Clamps

The car is pretty much setup for GO, but no SHOW.  Therefore I am seeking sponsorship the following categories:

1. Body Kit: Prefer a Veilside Body Kit for the first generation Lexus LS400
2. Rims & Tires:  I don’t care much.  However, I am looking for 20s with nice lips.  I personally prefer Sterling ADR 20″ inches with chrome
3. Interior: Complete Interior overhaul
4. Audio: Something nice and loud with DVD player and monitors
5. Paint:  White or Silver color

Thank You,
David

This is a freelance site with no support by huge companies.  I have been doing most of the R&D and technical write-ups by myself with my personal money and literally thousands of hours of my time.  I have taken extra steps to demonstrate in details how things are done.  Currently I am one of the few people doing Lexus V8 research and performance enhancement.  This effort comes from my personal love for this wonderful engine.  Most of the modifications are from trial and error. There's no cookbook for 1UZFE mods and its unknown territory for much of supercharger performance.  The parts, labor, web development and site hosting are 100% paid from my personal hobby money.  If you feel my efforts help you in any form, please do not hesitate to donate any amount of money to support this site. You have no idea how much I and the entire Lexus and Toyota community appreciate it!
