Default 2jz-gte vs SRT stage 4

If you had the chance to choose one of the following: 2jz-gte or SRT stage 4 for your IS300 which one would you pick and why?

GTE because it's factory issued boost.

I think it would be sweet to have a GTE and keep everything looking factory spec, tell a bunch of pimply faced high school boys you had it shipped from japan like that

GTE swap... for many reason... upgradability...cost of single turbo kits.. proven setups and cost..better head..throttle body flow..

I wonder what is the cost difference between the 2jz-gte or SRT stage 4 and the time frame for installation and which one would cost more to up keep?

well if you did a little bit of research (no harm intended) you would find that a full GTE swap would be around 15-20k which is the same as a SRT stage 4 20k...but the upkeep you speak of would be the same on both since they are both Turbo motors...

The GTE swap is the BETTER way to go..trust me..this is my 3rd Forced Induction Kit on my IS300 1 SuperCharger//2 Turbo Kits..

I would go for the 2jz-gte swap. These engines are known for its reliability/sturdiness.

Although on paper the IS300 engine looks very similar to the Aristo Twin Turbo engine, they are very much different. The Aristo Twin Turbo engine internals have been redesigned and are strengthed to cope with very high power.

Well, it does have it's ups & downs. Depends on what your looking for specifically. If your looking for just ample power (approx.400-500whp?), then the GTE swap is nice. If your looking for something outrageous in the 850-1,000whp, then for the IS (and this applies only on the IS), the SRT Stage 4 will be better. As for the cost factor, the GTE swap is more (engine, clutch, flywheel, tranny, drive shaft, rear) Can't just pop in the GTE and expect rest of the stock car to work. Now, I know you guys are wondering why I said the GTE swap is good for approx. 400-500whp (maybe just a bit more) but only applies to the IS? Well, it's about space. The IS300 engine bay is tight as is, and then it gets tighter with the bigger GTE swap. Now imagine a big HKS Twin set up or a big single turbo set up? I don't think so, no space. You can do this in any other car such as SC, GS, and obviously Supra, but not the IS300. So the 400-500+whp is for a bpu++ (maybe one more +) on the stock TTs for the GTE. I know this because I've considered both options first hand. But bottom line is basically what YOU want. If peeps are happy with bpu+++ power from the GTE swap and still spend about the same amount of $$ as a SRT Stage 4 cause they want factory oem look, then that's the way to go, it's YOUR preference. Oh, you might be able to do a APU on the GTE if you modifiy the manifold and position the turbo higher and modify the hood to accomodate for the turbo, but then that wouldn't be oem looking will it . I would luv to see a GTE swap with all the TT goodies (tranny, rear, driveshaft, flywheel/clutch) that is producing some sick power like the Supra guys do on the IS300, but then again, you no longer have an IS300 but more of a Supra-IS

ISMAN, there is a member on this site (blownis200) that is having a GTE swap done.
They have testfitted both a big single HKS and big twins. They both seem to fit fine.

I am well aware of his project and progress, but my statement above still applies. The European IS200 has been totally stripped and custom engine mounts fabbed, and the tranny, drive shaft, and the rear and other suspension parts. Do you think all this work and parts will be less than SRT Stage 4 system? In any case, I still don't know the exact specs on blownis200's turbo specs. Sincerely, I hope he's able to put in a nice big HKS system to make some sick 750+whp power, but nothing has been confirmed.

No, I think his project would be much more expensive then an "add on" turbo kit for the GE.
His car is going to be very nice though.
