What's up guys !
New to the is300 community and thought I'd share my experiences with this build. I come from a Nissan/Infiniti background but have always loved Toyota/Lexus as well. I've owned multiple 240s with numorous different set-ups, and have been daily driving a Y33 q45 for 4 years. Always was a dream to have a IS300 as a kid and the opportunity presented itself a couple months ago when I acquired this one. '02 auto big bird yellow lol I heard the yellow ones are rare but not my style. It will end up being black.
I've done extensive online research on what it'll take to achieve this swap ( thanks to member "Curran" ) and others that have put R&D time into this beautiful chassis. Now for pictures of the car and parts I've already acquired to get a head start ! Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy 👍
Here's my daily
