I miss my sc with the 1uz, the 1jz is just not as fun low end. The more I see turbo manual sc400s the more I want.

LOL, yea, i wanted something different for a project. Im not gonna get to exotic, but i will try to make it as clean as possible. And get it to drive and feel like a stock car with tons of power.
It was a local guy, not sure if he is on here.

I don't know which is nicer -- the car itself or the fact that it's a turbo v8. Even without the fun under the hood it looks beautiful. V8 + boost + manual trans = great driving experience.
