    I just bought this SXE10 Toyota Altezza RS200 at an auction in Japan. it has not arrived yet (I live in Denmark)
    but I have big plans with it, it must be built really nice although it is a drifter. there comes a 1JZ-GTE Single turbo from a Chaser in, instead of the original 3S-GE
    I look forward to a whole lot of work with wires, new tunnel, rollcage, spot welding, etc.


    More coming as soon as it has come to Denmark :D

    My poor IS200 in sitting very neglected on the driveway with no engine, gearbox interior pretty much anything, and the 1JZ and R154 (in bits) sitting in the garage. Been almost a year now with no progress (Motorbike took the summer away) now getting the ich to do some work with it, I need 2 1998 GS300 inlet side mounts to get the engine in then a mani and a least I could start her up (anyone got any ???)

    Good luck with the project if you need any info toymods.net are helpful chaps, or I can help (with my limited knowledge)

    Are you stripping it out or keeping it in standard trim ?

    the good thing with a 1jz is they are easy tuned, £1500 or less would see a happy 400 bhp

    Look forward to this,

    Still the best car I have ever just got in and drifted was Jon's monster (it was Jon wasnt it ??)

    Without a shadow of a doubt the easiest, most muscular, friendly drift car I have ever had the pleasure of. 2JZ with 2835's but a total pussycat !!

    If yours is half as good it'll be a winner in my book

    it is good to hear :thumbs: expect to build it up with the best parts on the market that does of course also mean it going to take a little longer to build it but it should be worth it
    :D
