Looks pretty cool. READ up on the 2JZ swap. Only a handful have done it in an IS in the world and only one in the USA that I've seen. Good luck.

Wow, that looks really good. I normally find "panda" colored cars very cheesy, but yours flows really well. Even though you were going for a track inspired look, its very aesthetically pleasing IMO

Good luck on the 2jz swap. I had a 2jz that I was gonna put in an s14 and also researched how much it will be to put it in my IS. Its not hard at all if you pair it with a supra transmission with custom mounts. The issue is wiring it up to pair with all the IS accessories and you have to either put in a key ignition or If you keep the push to start, you have to wire it to start with out the smart key and it leaves it open to have anyone start the car. There are a lot of variables that need to be considered. For a track car, it is 100% worth it but an on the road street car that you still want the amenities with, it would be a headache

I like it... kind of rare too so keep up the good work. Thanks for bringing up the track oriented spirit. Hopefully this should bring some awareness to our community thinking more into performance and track oriented type of build.
