Sorry for the lack of updates. Its been crazy with the business and life itself. I am going to have to sell the car soon, as much as i dont want to i have to at this point.
Car has been a blast to drive, i took off the muffler it had in the middle to make it louder and boy does it sound mean! It looks awesome watching a car you are used to seeing with that I6 sound roaring by you with that V8 muscle sound!

oh yeah, BUMP!
Its the OEM ex mani, meeting joining under the tranny into one going to the front on the passenger side into the turbo. The downpipe goes on the passenger side aswell to a flex pipe to the rear into to HKS mufflers.

I will get some footage for sure. I cant explain how different and awesome it is that there is a V8 turbo in here. LOL EVERYONE ask's "whats it got a 2j?" when i say V8 turbo there like" What?? Really?? Thats F'n cool" LOL
What the heck? Are you buying another one? Or did i miss something here? The stance was simply sick man.
The car did have a nice stance to it, gotta find some pix. No, just didnt notice a few comments and posted the video. After i sold my Turbo IS i have never kept cars for more than a few months. LOL, just finished an Integra project gonna sell that one now LOL. Having fun with different cars.
I've been a proud owner of this beast for about a year now. I'm the third owner after xboostx owned it; I'm sort of a perfectionist and this car needed a lot of love when I got it. So I'm in the process of doing a complete rebuild, hopefully getting it up to around a reliable 500HP.
I'm not sure if anyone is still following this thread, but I thought I owe it a little update anyway. This car has been abused by every previous owner besides xboostx who took some time to restore some bits and pieces. Aside from the custom single turbo piping, amazing job there, and the R154 swap, almost everything else needed to be replaced. So I started fresh with another SC, black on black with 100k on the odometer, you can actually still hear the 1UZ breaking in! It was involved in a minor front end accident but the car is so rare in this condition I couldn't let it be parted. What will come out of it I'll try to keep as a surprise!
It was extremely fun driving it for a bit, plus the couple thousand miles I drove from Minnesota where I purchased it. I'd still love to put this turbo kit on a different SC, since I got a taste of it, it's definitely worth it!
Huuuuh i watched that video at least 5 times. Im the proud owner of a 93 sc400 with original 147k miles. Just got it restored to factory specs and now its flawless with no oil leaks or check engine lights. I just purchased wheels two days ago. Saving for tires since they are 19's and looking for a good deal on coils/springs. I will forever follow this post until I decide to spend the cash to boost my 1uzfe. Biggest problem im having honestly is just a parts list of everything I will need. I would like know from a reliable source that is running this setup. Also manual swap
