Nope, 3S-GE will remain N/A.

Part 11 : Completion of 3S-GE equipped IS200!! (for now)




Here are pictures of the grey car after quick wash.
The car needs few details sort out.
Still having power steering issue, where the 3S-GE's power steering pumps out too much pressure that IS200 steering gear box can't take.
Anyways power steering does very little on the track, so we will just stick with no power until we find some solution.

The white car will be running the track with stock engine + auto tranny for just race day since the driver is still novice.
After the first race, we will do another conversion on white IS200 too. (I will keep posting on this car too)

Anyways were are some photos now. Enjoy!



















We detailed the car little.










Here are some detail shots!! :thumbup:









I will post up some more of details shots, and also continue the story on how we did on the track and etc.

Very nice.

I would have proposed an SXE10 body harness swap and run the digital Altezza cluster then gotten a standalone lap timer instead of running the integrated digital dash you put in.

Poster, I mean poster. What have I done?

Very nice!
Looks good!

Too many people try to impress others and build their car to what they know someone will like.
You lose sight on what you like, when you simulate your likes around others dislikes.

Yup that would be another way to do it.

But I also like to watch oil pressure/oil temp with the Laptor R1.
It also records all the driving lines and etc for data logging to improve the driving skill.

The front fender needs to be re-done by the bodyshop because we had to pull the front fender almost 2in.
