Thumbs up

I have to give you credit for the idler pulley idea. The pictures from your thread helped a lot. With your blower and myy current pulley I could be making 10-11 PSI with a cooler charge of air. That would max the M90 and injectors out. I wonder if that difference would require a stand alone. What do you think??
I know how much of a prefectionist you are, so I am sure that your upcoming project will be a success.

Hey guys, long time no talk.
The car is still running great, I have about 170,000 miles on the clock and it still doesn't burn through any oil. I am still at 9psi, but I seem to only hit 8-8.5 most of the time unless I add some belt slip spray. People still can't believe that my car is close to 17 years old, what a testament to Toyota. I am hoping to paint the car, then take on another engine transformation. Has anyone else installed a m90??

Thanks for the update. Any issues whatsoever in the past year, or does it just drive like an LS400 with 2 extra cylinders?

Wow! what a treat to read. We race Turbo Buick V6's but drive Lexus's lol How about an update? Any dyno or track times? I'm actually going to buy a 00 LS400 Platinum Edition SE this weekend, due to my wife wrecking my 96 LS400. Anyway, awesome project!!! You give us hope!

if you flip your upper rad hose around so that the long part attaches to the engine and the short part attaches to the rad, you will have more clearance for your belt

Carlos i kick your topic to the universe, what a thread you have made for us all.
Many thanks for it, even it is ages ago you freaks reacted in the thread i can only say it makes us LS400 owners shiver. My supercharger fever is at its peak now. Can you imagine i live on the site of this planet and my LS400 is 21 years old now and has 430.00 km on the clock.
I have just bought on pallet one UFZE engine with 190.000 km on the clock, it this eninge will be FI thank to your topic and Lextreme of course.

I have one small request if you would ever log in to your thread again:

Is it possible to place the video back on you tube ? It has removed by the owner the site tells me.

And one last question:

Is your LS still boosting ?

Greetzzz from Lexter

Smile Awesome job Carlos

Carlos, what an awesome ride you have and it gives me hope to supercharge my 96 LS400. I have seen Turbo models and Supercharged and I think I am leaning towards the supercharger after reading your posts. I know this may not get seen, but if it does please let me know how the car is running.

I have 122,000 on my now and living in Japan with the car gives me the aility to get parts at a serious discount. Any inputs on what all it took to pull this off is appreciated.
