Shop Project : 806HP 5 Speed Lexus GS300 aka Peanut Butter and Jelly

Since we sold our last shop project car 240SX with RB26 Twin Turbo power we have been itching to build another shop car to showcase our capabilities.  In love with Supra’s, we figured we would create a 4 Door Version!  Naturally all aspects of the vehicle would be upgraded including the 2JZGTE Drivetrain and a R154 Manual Transmission Conversion, the Paint and Body including a JDM Aero Kit and color change, Suspension and Brakes including Brembo 6/4 Piston Calipers as well as all of the details required to make a big power show beast!

For Sale : Lexus IS300 with 1JZGTE – Perfect Starter Project!

We have available for sale a very clean 2001 Lexus IS300 with a 1JZGTE Single Turbo Swap.  We purchased this hard to find Green with Beige Leather IS300 with a Clean Title all stock and then upgraded it with a JZ Turbo Engine and matching 4 speed Turbo trans.  We specialize in 1/2JZGTE swaps with OEM reliability and functionality.  A low mileage Crown JZS171 Motor was installed with a custom Front Mount Intercooler Kit and Full Exhaust system.  We took care of the wiring and electrical system, the fuel system as well as the cooling system so that the car runs and drives like factory.  The motor pulls agressively, it is very fast!  The IS300 is known for being compact, luxurious and very sporty.  With the DRAGint.com touch, it is a serious performer that will blow the doors off of most other sedans!  This car starts up and idles perfectly with ice cold ac, rides smooth and tracks straight.  It is a great starting platform for the Toyota JZ turbo motor enthursiast.

We have available for sale a freshly completed shop project – a 1998 Lexus GS300 with upgrades inside and out.  We purchased this GS300 as a stock, clean title vehicle with the specific intention of bringing it back to life.  The car has turned out better than we even imagined!  The 2JZGTE VVTI Swap fits and performs perfectly, like factory.  The fresh black leather interior is an awesome complement to the fresh Spectra Blue Mica paint.  In addition to engine, paint and interior, we also upgraded the car in a few other ways to help set this GS300 apart.  Often known for their reiliability, smooth ride and space, this GS300 kicks it up a notch with an agressive stance and turbo power to make your work commute more exciting than ever.  Known for our quality swaps that stand the test of time, this car would make the perfect daily driver!  Ice Cold A/C, a nearly show quality paint job, new 20 inch staggered wheels and a stainless steel exhaust system – this GS is the one!  
 

Swap Service : Lexus SC430 + 2JZGTE VVTI PTE 6266 Single Turbo!

The Lexus SC430 has always intrigued us.  It is bullet proof reliable, is based on a chassis that can accept JZ drivetrain, and is a convertible.  It sounds like a great canvas to build up a sick street / show car but the unknown electronics tricky canbus system have scared shops and customers away alike.  We at DRAG International love a challenge and with the help of Brian of Extreme Motorsports (Fabrication) and Jr of JR Wiring Solutions (electrician) we have accomplished our goal to install a 2JZ Single Turbo drivetrain and retain all of the amenities of the Z40 Chassis!!  What do you call an automobile that can drop its hard top roof, encompass you in luxury appointments and melts its rear tires with 2JZ power – A Dream Come True!
