if we're talking about the Toyota Soarer, then i'd say go for it... cant go wrong with a 3L DOHC 6 cylinder turbo engine.

Would it have most of these features? Leather Seats, Electric Drivers Side (6 way), electric steering column adjustment, TV, TEMS Adjustable Air Suspension, Steering wheel controls for Climate Control and Radio Volume/Tuning, Electric Sunroof, LCD dimming Rearview mirror, Lights in the sunvisors, A/C, P/S, Cruise Control?



btw, would it be Z1 or Z2?


i hope this is what your talking about...

If you have a chance to pick up a soarer I would definetely do it. There are a couple that have been transported to the states and they are the shiznit. Nothing like the supra engine in what we call an SC 300. BTW are you referring to the new model or the previous gen.

I have 3 vids of a sc 300 tt racing... One is against a cobra=killed the cobra, one against a stang gt from a stop= Killed him, and you could tell when he got traction b/c he flies after that. The last one is awesome... it's a viper(i think it was the venom) racing 2(11sec) rx-7s and the viper killed both of them.. BUT the sc 300 was watching from behind and caught up to the viper like nothing.. then the viper presses the breaks right before the sc passes him. HAHAHAH yea acting like he wasn't racing. I wonder if they're the same sc 300, b/c I think powerhouse racing has done tons of lexus to supra engine conversions, and I'm sure other poeple have done it too.

i should mention that the sc 300-400 soarer has a 1JZ-GTE engine instead of the supra's 2JZ-GTE. I believe the new ones with the retractable hardtop have the 2JZ-GTE
