Default Lexus IS200 With V12 Swap

Check it out here: Lexus IS200 With V12 Swap

The first gen IS has seen a ton of different engine swaps in it's day, but there's nothing quite like a V12. By some miracle of engineering, this guy managed to shoehorn an 1GZ-FE beneath the hood of this otherwise nondescript IS. Awesome.

Bragging rights. The only V12 in any Lexus.

Thats the same engine Top Secret threw into a Supra a few years ago, right? Doesn't it only make less than 300hp?

Shiiit! this is too sick!

I'm going to have to show my tuner this. He ordered a 1gz years ago and it never came. It is possible!

Wow that's crazy! That's a lot of hard work put into an engine bay!

Makes 310hp/355lb-ft torque
The Supra that Top Secret built had a twin turbo 1GZ-FE so it made a lot more power

Looks heavy and cumbersome, but interesting swap nonetheless.

really unique, but.... some times thats not a good thing. I dunno, too much weight, not enough room, pointless imo.
