plankton007 posted a topic in Lexus IS250 / Lexus IS250C / Lexus IS350 / Lexus IS350C Club / Lexus IS-F / IS300hGreat news for our 200t members with potential power bumps up to 240whp and 273 lb ft torque (178rwkw and 370nm of torque) https://www.clublexus.com/forums/performance/805369-is200t-tune-90.html#post9936687 On the other hand we have a potential turbo kit coming out for the 2gr fse (2IS350 3IS350 RC350 GS350) Picture is from the Lexus IS Freaks facebook page by Mathew Wilson of OV Tuning
Back in September, Lexus unveiled its LF-NX compact crossover concept vehicle at the Frankfurt Motor Show. That concept vehicle focused on a hybrid drivetrain. Today, at the Tokyo Motor Show, Lexus provided further details on its plans for a 2-litre turbo drivetrain variant for the LF-NX. No doubt, this will be the same engine used for other Lexus vehicles in the future. Journalists expect the output to be around 220 kW, meaning that it's a likely replacement for the 3.5 litre 2GR on the RX, IS, GS and ES. The RC 350, due for release next year, will probably be the last model to be introduced that will carry a 3.5-litre naturally aspirated engine. The interesting point about Lexus' first turbo engine is that it uses a single twin-scroll turbocharger. This has a number of benefits over a twin-turbo setup: less parts, lighter construction, more reliable and cheaper to manufacture and maintain. What's more, turbo lag is further reduced. Your thoughts? Is it a step in the right direction for Lexus?
Hey guys! I just joined this forum today as about 8 hours ago my mum bought a 2002 IS200 in Black with the I6 1G-FE... Just some background on me so you can get an idea of who I am: I am 15 years old and I live in Auckland, New Zealand, I am very into cars and mentally know my stuff but with my mums previous car being a 1993 Toyota Corona and before that a 199x Nissan Sentra, I have never had the ability to do anything myself... When I am older my dream is to have a 1200HP TT Toyota Supra, and yes I have already got the whole parts list down to the Valve seal locks, but I am not here to discuss that, I am here to ask a few questions and get some knowledge about the IS200... Unfortunately the car is an Automatic, because manuals get snapped up pretty quick by boy-racers and when they dont the owners chuck an extra $4,000 onto the price tag, so that was out of the question, but then again, my mum spends about 15-30 minutes every day sitting in traffic idling along, and apparently riding the clutch for that long isnt good anyway... The first few things we (me and mum) are looking for the car is an exhaust (pretty grunty but not ridiculous) then some nice 17's or 18's, and maybe (if I can convince her) a turbo kit (between 250-350hp)... First things first though, I like to use Nengun.com, because the stuff is real cheap and i am used to the website, unfortunately they no longer have the IS200 as a option under vehicle choice, so the Altezza option will have to do for now... The available chassis codes for the Altezza are JCE10 and SXE10, I do not know which model is which, but apparently my mums model is neither, so what one should i choose if any would be the same? I understand there are 2 different engines that come in the IS200 (the I6 and I4) But in the Altezza (and gita) there are 3 (I6, I4 and the god of all engines, the 2JZ) but those 2 options are for the I4 and the 2JZ, so will any exhaust made for those platforms(?) fit my mums? Many thanks, Caleb P.S: If you guys are going to get all smart and be dicks then dont bother replying, I got enough of that from the mkivsupra forums guys, not being rude but you know :)
danzannyam posted a topic in Lexus IS200 / Lexus IS300 / Toyota Altezza ClubIn this year I'm planning to install turbo kit with my Toyota Altezza RS200 6MT/2002y09m/. So Does it need to change my piston ring? And which turbo kit should I install?
