I did have a few questions:

#1 - What throttle cable did you end up using for the LHD pedal assembly and the 3SGE? Was it a toyota part number or was it custom?

#2 - I also have an HKS 4-1 Race header for the 3SGE, did your stock manifold touch the steering shaft? I will have to test fit my header for clearance and modify it as necessary.

#3 - Were you able to plug the 3S-GE motor harness into the IS200 body/fuse harness? I assume there will be some differences, but I hope that because the motor was in fact an option somewhere (just not LHD + 3SGE) that many things will plug in if we extend wires.

I am also hoping to make 200-220rwhp to run Time Attack time trials here.

Hello.

#1. I am still using stock cables from IS200(1GE-FE engine). Routing cable is not much of hassle. You will have more hardtime re-routing fuel line safely.
#2. I am not sure with HKS race header, but most likely you will modifiy it slightly to avoid contact with steering shaft.
#3. ECU harness fits, but you will need to re-route the wires to match the 3S-GE OEM ECU.

Altezza came with VSC, while IS200/300 only had TSC.
This means your 3S-GE ECU will go into limp mode since it is detecting VSC malfunction.
I wish there was way to go around this issue, but I could not resolve it.
That was the one of main reason we went with aftermarket ECU.

I also replied to your PM.

Jae, when you refer to rerouting of some wires to match the 3SGE ECU, are you talking about mandatory pinouts that are needed for the car to start? or are we talking about things like HVAC heating, gauge cluster, etc?

My main goal is to get the car idling and moveable, i can easily sort out the "nice to haves" later on. as I am also thinking of running a RacePak cluster.

You can PM me to keep your thread clean.

Both ECU and body harness requires swapping the pinouts.
Anyways I will PM you the details.

I just found out my car does have VSC, so hopefully that will make it easier.

Finished 2012 season with good success.
I have ranked 2nd for my class in 2012 season.

Now time for some ITB project on this winter!
Here are few shots from this years last race day.

(BTW, RECARO is our official sponsor for our team! )
















Couple random shots.
