Hey guys my dad and I have been tinkering with this lexus for over 6 years, thought I'd share some pics. It came to me automatic, looked like the previous owner used steel wool to wash it, thrashed interior and barley able to do a single wheel burnout.....
Outside the car the only mods done are Siebon carbon fiber hood, and some ADR wheels with Falken tires and paint 5 years ago.
Kept the interior mostly stock as well, My dad reskinned the seats and door panels, Altezza steering wheel, TRD shift ****, Sc300 clutch pedal + shift boot
Engine, Driveline and Chassis mods
- imported low km 1UZ to work with and freshened her up.
- S&S Shorty headers with stock exhaust no cats,
-R154 5 speed from 1990 supra turbo with a Dellow bell housing and custom extended shifter housing made by my dad
-one piece aluminum driveshaft from RHDjapan.com
-ACT HD clutch and lighten flywheel
-M112 supercharger 9psi with homemade adapter made by my dad
-Mega-squirted, bigger injectors and walbro 255 pump again by my dad
-supra 6 speed LSD rear end (bolted in with stock sc400 axle shafts zero problems)
-removed all suspension components and rear subframe and POR15 black, removed all factory rubber bushings and inserted poly-urethane bushings. Surprisingly very little road noise, improved chassis feel and tightness. PITA removing factory bushings thou..
-megan racing radiator
-Eibach lowering springs
-braided brake lines + slotted rotors
That's a fantastic, clean and well modified SC400! I'd only suggest upgrading your front brakes since it's supercharged but every other aspect of this car looks (and reads in the specs) perfectly. That's a serious "wow". Subtle but completely gone through. Welcome to CL!

KahnBB6-- Im keeping my eyes out for some Supra TT front calipers, definitely on my list.
bigwhite-- I have but my old man wants me to keep it in The guy supercharges my car least
I can do
Sylexus--- the m112 is very nice, boosts pretty quick. We went with the 112 over the 90 because it has a bypass valve so you only boost when you boot it, it DDs like a stock lexus until you hammer down and the m112 boosts and the supra lsd locks and she isn't very lexus like anymore
I'll hook the go pro up for a rolling vid after the weekend as the new 2.5" exhaust is going in
