Is200 Beams Conversion

Recommended Posts


Im thinking of doing a Beams conversion to our IS200 auto

anyone of you guys done this before??

i can get a halfcut with the lot on it at a good price

though being a same chassis i dont think i'll run into any major problems

but ill like to hear some personal experience

i have done this conversion on my own car & can tell you it is a lot of work - whilst the motor basically bolts in, the rest does not - there is a heap of minor mods to be done all over the place. (fuel & brake lines, clutch line, tailshaft, exhaust & the wiring!!

wiring requires quite a bit of work - you need to pull the dash & replace the looms, & even then there are bits you have to rewire there as well!

not for the faint hearted.

(& no i'm not exagerating - i have done lots of toyota conversion, this one took quite some time)

its a bit of work. however i don't know of any conversion that is a basic bolt in (modern cars that is)

1/2j mas be simpler if you have a late modsle motor - need to check with engineer on conversion as it may not conform as 99% of 1j motor setups are pre '99
