What could be better than 730HP 2JZGTE VVTI with R154 5 Speed and an AEM Flex Fuel system Tuned by Lance?! How about all that in a Lexus Hardtop Convertible?!?!! BOSS!!!! With the Supra MK4 prices sky rocketing we set the trend of the next best 2 Door to swap the 2JZGTE into! This is our 2nd Single Turbo 2JZGTE Powered SC430 – but this one built by our own Technician Andrew is the BADDESSTTT!!!!
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!
We had a fun day with friends and family at the JM Custom Creations : Elite Import Bash. What a Show! With 2 Dynos, food, music and all of the nicest Tuned Lexus’ out of South Florida this was the best meet of 2014 thus far. There were plenty of other makes and models as well. The JM staff was great with transportation to and from the parking lot; they were extremely courteous! We are looking forward to the next event! Enjoy the photos!
