Lexus SC430 upgrade .

Section for general chatting about your RAV4 or other Rides ... What you do with it, how to use it, where you been in it, or not been in it, we don't mind... It's a free world!
Oh, If you want to get all technical, the Technical Questions and Info could be the place to go.

Looks nice with the roof down.... never quite fell in love with the shape of those cars with the roof up though.... Nice big engine mind !! I'd have to change them rusty bolts and brackets !!

Yes same 280bhp 4.2 Vvti V8.....new car as a 6 speed box auto ( old car 5 speed) also has a sequential gear shift lever.

Engine bay ..It's just the brackets that need painting and a gereral clean of all the plastic parts .....I'm on the case :s_thumbsup

I would imagine that engine is tuned for torque? It's power numbers are not huge for such a big V8 .... love the colour of that car it's so much nicer than silver IMO.... :s_thumbsup
