Yeah that's the dude who had dropped over $50,000 on the swap (in addition to the cost of the car) and it still wasn't working last time he posted about it (which was a while now).

I was floored when I heard he dropped 50k into a 2IS. I would never, ever, drop 50k+ into an entry level luxury sport sedan. And it's not like he spent 50k on a various range of rare JDM/whatever things, he spent 50k on something that still does not work (make that about 90k since his car now is just a sitting piece of metal).

I at least give him major props for trying it out...

Conclusion: When you buy a 2IS, don't expect a lot of performance upgrades. If you wanted that, buy a supra/is300, or buy a car that has the performance you already want (I'm quite sure you save money this way... and it's still under warranty!)

I hate to beat this guy up but I wouldn't even go as far and giving much "props" IMHO.

The fact that is cost 50k means he was paying someone else to do the work. That's the real tragedy of it all, missing out of the best part.

if you know you don't have the experience, ability, tools, know how, etc to complete a swap like this, you are better off paying an expert to do it. you can't dawg on a person for trying to be smart.

on top of that, how many shops actually do their own machine work? get off your high horse buddy, everyone needs help at some point.

Give me a break. From the limited knowledge about this project, they didn't have the experience, they didn't have the ability but they sure took the money. It's a positive sign when a shop does they own machining and/or has a known good relationship with a local machine shop.

Again, we donít know how this project got started and it is easy for a person/shop to bite of more than they can chew.

DIY or DIE

The race-car swaps don't really count, since nothing original actually works in the car.

(I mentioned the falken drift 350 with a 2JZ a while back- 0 original bits worked on it except the push button start)

Hi, sorry to open a post from so long ago, but I would like to know if it is possible to install a 2jz in my is250 and keep running everything perfectly.
Apart of a motor swap, can i continue using the original automatic gearbox of my is250? Will continue running the VDIM? Traction control? Vrsc? All continue running perfectly?

Thanks for all guys!
