    Default 1UZ-FE TT in my IS200

    Hi guys.

    will be starting my Conversion on my IS200 to 4L V8 1UZ-FE thats in the Lexus LS400
    i have a LS400 makeing its way to me very soon thanks to a mate, He knew that i wanted to do this for some time now, and he came over my place oneday and told me he had got a 1991 LS400 can not pick it up untill next month

    The car has done 120,000 miles but then so has my IS200, so i dont only have the engine i have the rest of the car as well to get some bits off. as its been done before........i have or can get all the info i need when i need it, the gearbox is going to take most of the time to do as you guys know the LS gearbox is auto and i want to convert it to manual...........i know there are 2 or 3 gearboxs out there that will fit but i will have to swap the bellhousing over for a custom made one,

    (ECU) as for the ECU.........HKS Fcon V-Pro or the Linksplus G2

    as for things like the fueling, injectors will be replaced!

    dont think i will have to mod the sump like on most Conversion,s on the IS as the sump on the 1UZ-FE sits at the front of the engine so it should fit over the cross member on the IS, think i will have to make some custom engine mounts i say think as i will not know untill i drop the 1UZ in to see.

    the good thing about this swap is that the 1UZ is an all aluminum construction that makes it just as light as the 1G-FE + The Rods are factory forged units, the same as the crank.


    I will keep you all updated to how its all going, i will put some pic,s up when the work starts.



    UPDATES, to come


    O and Mos i take my Hat of to you mate, top job you are doing with you Swap

    many people don't frequent the "conversions" section (particularly the post whores).
    MUCH more excitement will happen when this puppy starts to take off...

    I must say, you have massif cojones for trying to fit a v8 *and* two turbos in the is200 engine bay!

    When you want to get some of the IS200 functions working again I can help. The ECU is very sensitive if it doesn't have an engine hanging on the end of it and as it talks to the other 4 computers there are a few issues.

    Have fun - there's not much room in there.

    Good luck! Thats all i can say really. I'll be following this thread as it'll be interesting as to how/where you mount your turbos.

    I don't get onto Toymods much so sorry for not responding.

    Yopu can use the stock ECU if you want. It will be easier.

    Manual transmission adaptors are available from about 6 companies Worldwide.

    The stock injectors will support a 20% increase in power without poroblems.

    Try visiting www.lextreme.com as there are similar threads there and the Site specialises in the UZ series of engines.

    That's awesome man, looks like we think alike. I too am goin down this path but am goin with a supercharger instead of turbos, just through personal preference. With any luck i'll get up to syd one day when we're both done and go for a cruise!! Good luck, i'm sure we'll both need it!! Lee
