EDIT UPDATE ON PAGE 8 WITH 1JZ R154 PICS INSTALLED

Hey guys it comes with great pleasure to finally announce that after 3 years of being a member, and joining when I was 17, too now being 20 and finally owning my first Lexus SC300.

Quick background of myself, names Jason I live in AZ and have been a car enthusiasts since I can last remember, and I've been a fan of the SC's for about 4-5 years now, and I have now found my close to perfect SC300.

For the past couple years I've been lurking all types of forums (Supraforums.com, ClubNA-T.com, MKIV.net, as well as Clublexus.com) gaining knowledge of the SC platform, and its capabilities.

I've always wanted a white SC 5 speed, and well those are few & far between too find. Beggars can't be choosers, so I went ahead and bought this beauty.

1993 DWP Auto SC300 181K

Future plans are as follows (obviously after basic maintenance of course)

Some sort of front lip for the '93 front end (Probably end up being a SC400 lip)

'97 Tails

XXR521's (20 year old budget so cut me some slack)

K-Sport Coilovers (They are local too me, so I can get them fairly cheap)

Origin roof spoiler

Then during most of those mods, I'll slowly be buying 5 speed swap parts (Thanks to DaveGS4 for the lovely thread https://www.clublexus.com/forums/sc-...-a-thread.html

After I get all that situated then I start saving up for some sort of NA-T kit and make sure I do it correctly.

Anyways I've done enough blabbering onto the pics









All I got for pics as of now. Thanks for looking

wouldnt it just be cheaper to do a 1jz swap than boosting and tranny swapping the stock motor? thats what im planning on doing.

well im including the price of the tranny swap too. and im also talking about a good turbo kit. like just a quick google search the first kit i saw was a turbonetics and its 4500. and from what ive seen thats the lower end of the spectrum for good turbo kits. plus he has to buy a manual transmission on top of that. from what ive seen 1jz's go for around 1500-2500 online. and that comes with the 5speed and twin turbos.

Enjoy the ride! There is no such thing as resale so only put into it what you're willing to lose. Driving these stock will get you a car that'll never die for a cheap price. Driving them modified is fun, but whatever you put in is lost in the "fun factor".
