Hey fellow Lexus owners!!!!! I have a very important question that I need help on. How would you compare the reliability on a stock SC300 2JZGE with a turbo kit boosting about 8psi to a Twin turbo 2JZGTE swap pushing 17psi???? I know the prices diffrences and all of that I just want to know how reliable is a SC300 with a turbo kit on a totally stock block and head for a everyday driver???? and how long would a car like this last??? if you have one please tell me how long you have had the turbo kit, how many miles are on your car, and a quick discription on how you drive the car if you have babied it or you run it like a turbo???? ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED, HAVE A GREAT DAY EVERYONE!!!!!!

WOW!!!!!!!!!!! Im getting really ticked with these guys closing my threads for very dumb and small problems........... I dont understand why you have to do that just to **** someone off, But whatever...........
Check out those links I found you though, they're good na-t resources... and I think the thread above does have a good na-t vs no na-t discussion, I've listed some pros, and other members have listed some cons.
Thanks for your input red 95 and gario. But gario I know there is some potential for the NA-T But the think is how long do you think that guys car is really gonna last if he actually drives it "like a supra"???????
You can drive your car hard, but if you maintain it regularly with quality maintenance parts, then it should last you a while. I know guys who drift/autox with their 200k motors and drive it everyday, and still runs flawlessly.
If you boost your stock motor with no preparations done to it, and you run it here and there on 7lbs it may not last as long as if you prep the motor, maybe a thicker stronger head gasket, and some other preparations to make your stock motor a little more boost friendly.
a compression test on the stock motor can give you some info on the health of the engine. I'd check out the links posted above, do a compression test. Look into a supra TT HG at least, and other mods to make your car boost friendly.
