Lexus Performance Shops DFW
 
Looked through a few ages and didn't see anything....sorry if I missed it. We all know that when thinking Honda, you go to Tony at T1, vette is LG motorsports, etc. Is there a shop that most of the Lexus guys here use? Looking to get a few things and although I can probably order everything online and save a few bucks, I like supporting local shops! :thumbup: Thanks in advance gents and ladies.

Im a total do it yourself guy, only place that comes to mind is JPImportz, good guy and some quality work. MVP Motorsports is also great but a ways out from the metroplex.

Dynosaur Performance in Saginaw, Tx

They are the only shop i would trust my car to. If they cant get you a certain part, they can make it.

What about the 1uz guys? Both of those shops are for 2jz owners.

I'd definitely go with JP Importz.

Thanks guys. I know Dynosaur, but haven't heard of the other ones. I'll definitely have to check them out!

I posted a similar thread on the FB group. Dynosaur and JP for 2JZ. I'm not sure who to go to for 1UZ.

1uz is mostly a diy type of engine. Where a turbo kit is custom fabricated. Exhaust is custom, etc..

Speaking of custom. I dropped off your stuff today. It will be ready friday.

spdrcr771 - Who did your swap? If I follow your sig correctly, the PPE headers with the Y pipe setup made the biggest difference for you (besides the swap)? Mustang Dyno's read lower correct?

I've got IMF headers (long tube) but am not getting the performance I expected. Is there an exhaust shop you'd recommend to inspect the rest of my system? I'm trying to retain a relatively quiet setup.

Dynosaur can work on anything you bring them. There is a TT Viper GTS and a 408ci LS3 swapped 350z up there currently, as well as the normal Supra clientele. I have personally helped out up there with a clutch/flywheel swap on a 360 Modena before.

Sweet deal man.

MVP Motorsports. Dusty and the crew are top notch.

oh, GOD...DO NOT GO TO JPI unless you don't value your car at all... That guy is a hack.

lol. He's fine for OEM related repairs. I believe he used to be a master tech as Lexus, but don't take your stuff to them for mods or aftermarket.

If you need a built 2JZ, let me know :)
