    What a bummer,

    I got excited thinking that I was going to finally install the oil pump, water pump, and oil pan items. I stretched out the o-ring for the water pump so had to order a new one. Also I damaged the seal for the oil pump, the spring fell off as I was installing it, rookie mistake. I installed the spring back into the seal but I would **** for it not to matter that I put it back and have to replace it anyways. I am still waiting on one for the oil pick up o-rings, and a new seal. So this is all I got done today.

    Thanks Mike, the wedding is coming up quick which means I will be ordering parts soon too. So in other words my patience will soon pay off.

    I almost have all of the parts for the manual conversion. I am going with the IS300 pedals because they also dress the interior at the same time for that I purchased a IS300 gas pedal as well. Compared to the SC300 and Supra pedal kit that drift motion carries, these pedals are the OEM ones for each of the cars mentioned. Clutch master cylinder I am also using the IS300, I found one for a good price. Plus since I was using IS300 pedals I decided to use the clutch master cup as well. Custom drive shaft is from TheDriveshaftShop. Driftmotion also makes them custom. These parts are not hard to find thanks to Driftmotion who carries a good deal of them.

    I hope this helps CBdrift

    thanks. ive been thinking about one of these as a daily, but only if I could manual swap it. seems fairly straight forward mechanically. Im guessing there are probably some electronic issues that would need to be dealt with.

    If you want to just have one as a daily which I have also thought of, I would buy a W58 (my approach if is just a daily) and keep the 2jzge engine. Then all you need to get is the transmission, master and slave, pedals. Some other things but aside from that, you will have a nice daily.

    New addition to the family. Moved away from the mini van aka "swagger wagon" to two sedans. I need a car while "The Boat" is on jack stands.



    Making room to park one car, the storage unit is waiting for what's left in the garage. GS has been patient.

    I do like the 300s, no plans for it yet. Looks nice like it is for now.

    Man this is sweet. I am not usually a fan of these style Lexus, but you have broadened my horizons. That wheel and tire combo is sweet. Where in Minnesota are you?
