I’m absolutely in love with my gold ‘98 GS400. She’s my very first I-bought-it-myself car. Got her for just over $2000 and at 189k miles two years ago. She’s a salvage title and was kind of neglected...

PSA for this thread:

On top of the GS400/430 throttle body is a little plate held down by two screws. If you take this plate off you’ll probably find the little chamber full of carbon crud. Clean...

Verify whether or not it'll run on starter fluid, because starts-then-dies usually means a sensor issue, in my experience. MAF, crank, cam, etc.

All the fuel pumps I've had die would run for a...

Essentials for a healthy GS400/430

When I bought my GS400, it felt smooth and strong up in the high revs but never really exciting off the line or during part-throttle pulls. I recorded a 0-60 time of 6.7 seconds once. I attributed it...

Not to 1-up here, but I just used the Sylvania restoration kit yesterday. I was expecting the lights to turn out like shwalker07’s—clear but just a tiny bit fogged, and that would’ve been fine....

The factory GS300 rear is a 3.73 and I believe the Supra TT LSD is a bolt-on swap. However, keep in mind that the CD009 has basically the same overdrive ratio as the stock A650e while the first five...

That 5.6 stroker job seemed like a lot of work for about the same amount of power some bolt-ons can get... unless the stated power numbers were at the wheels.

Another modified stock intake

My PCV line vacuum fitting snapped off, and I wanted a little extra induction noise, so I took a leaf out of GS400V8's book and chopped off the stock resonator on the intake tube. I cut a slab of the...

My top suspects would be the oil control valves. You can see them right on top of the timing covers and they're fairly easy to replace.

Thanks for the links. I personally recommend the Sylvania Zevo LEDs. My uncle has them in his GS430 wedge lights and they're a perfect match to the low beams. $10 each and easy to find.
