It's possible that ABS doesn't go through the TC computer on non-VDIM cars though (06-08 250s) which would most easily explain it still working...


Surprising but all pleasantly so




Ah, didn't realize the later-year aristos were DBW... I figured it was a supra swap... does the aristo have an ECT-Snow mode that he wired up too or is the ECT button one-way now?




Heh... that is not surprising... the amount of work was the one thing I was always sure about on the swap (based in part on the comments from the Falken racing guys about why they did NOT get anything OEM to work due to the insane amount of work it'd take)

Huge kudos to you and your dad for getting this done and getting as much working as you did...bet the car is fun as hell to drive

Is the motor stock right now (incl. power levels?) if so how much is he planning to add?
lol yeah not gonna go and tinker with it on the dyno until the AEM is in. Its come this far already so waiting another week or so isnt gonna kill us. especially since its been this long of a project.

I gotta say this thing is a milestone for the 2IS community. With the engine bay covers on the 2jz looks mad sexy just sitting there. I assume since you are using the stock auto, it is the A340e. I'm unsure of how the 2IS paddle shifters work, but if it displays the gear does it display the correct gears 1-4?

I'm actually kind curious on that too...and the rest of the multi-display info too... like the mpg info for example... (and does the TPMS system still work? though many would consider a "no" to be an improvement )

any step by step details of how this was all done. Almost like a DIY post?

Never argue with an idiot; they'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience

EVERTHING IS CUSTOM. Only thing he can recall not modifying, is the lower radiator hose, which was from a mk4 supra.

WOW. very impressed. I just wish this thing was had the 6spd getrag in it. Then it would be complete and officially the baddest car I've seen in awhile.

yeah, but it will be much nicer to have ALOT of power coming thru the Auto using the paddle shifters than to be going thru the 6 speed. I have a 6 speed in my car and pulling on the paddles in the 250 makes the 250 feel so much more like a real machine than my car!
