    Alright, I've got some pictures here. Excuse the dirt, I haven't had a chance to wash it this week and we had some rain and dust last weekend.

    I'm not sure how much it weighs; it's a VIS racing part (according to the badge). It's in decent shape, but really the only issue is the finish has yellowed a cracked a bit from the sun. I'm sure it can be fixed, but I'll post some pictures to the thread after I get off work.

    The trunk lid isn't too bad, but the hood has seen better days. The previous owner put them on a while ago and they're fiberglass with a layer of carbon fiber so they've shrunk a bit in the heat and so the fit and finish isn't great anymore. The trunk is in better shape for sure, but definitely...

    First off, this is perfect! I don't know how you found these cause I spent hours on eBay and couldn't find these at all, so thank you very much for this! Yeah, I've looked online for some of the stuff. Shipping is a big issue with most of the parts I've found and I don't really want to pay the...

    Good day! To make a long story short, I'm trying to bring my project IS 300 back to life and I'm really tired of the "carbon fiber" trunk and hood. I'm looking for the following items: (All are for 1st Gen IS300) OEM Hood OEM Trunk lid (with spoiler with third brake light preferred but not...
  6. Trunk does not open

    I'll have to look in the morning when I have a chance to pull out the lining, but here's what happens when the lever is pulled:
  7. Trunk does not open

    General Discussion
    Yeah, basically, when I pull on the handle inside there is some slack in the cable where it curves around the driver side speaker in the trunk and that will move (the whole cable casing) like it's taking out the slack. The latch is brand new and the lever that the cable connects to definitely...
  8. Abs , Brake , and Trac off Lights are on Need Help!!!

    Basic Help & Repair
    Mine are on as well. If you do a reset to the level system (zero point calibration or something) then it will fix the lights, but they'll probably come back on the next time you hit your brakes hard. From what I've read, if it's not the abs sensors, it's actually the sensor that's in the brake...
  9. Passing Emissions with Turbo Power

    Go Fast Stuff
    My question exactly. The computers in cars have gotten incredibly sophisticated and in some ways the Lexus ECUs were ahead of the curve from what I understand. And it seems many on the forums have the same sentiments. Like I said, some people seem to have zero issues with a sim, and others can't...
  10. Passing Emissions with Turbo Power

    Go Fast Stuff
    Except that I would like to avoid having to do that. /s That was the joke. Again, I've been hearing some back and forth across the forums about the O2 sims. Some say they work, and others complain that they don't completely work especially with the trick lean and rich conditions the computer...
  11. Passing Emissions with Turbo Power

    Go Fast Stuff
    Wow, it's starting to sound like cracking the OEM ECU might be an easier task than trying to make it happy with false signals and whatnot. Alright, I'll have to try out the Arduino option. That sounds like a pretty sure bet as long as I can get it to mirror the output of a stock ECU perfectly...

    Luckily we don't have a visual inspection here, but we also don't have independent shops to do the emissions testing out here either. The testing is done at Arizona Department of Transportation owned and operated facilities. The just plug in an OBDII reader, test at idle, then at revs, and then...
  13. Passing Emissions with Turbo Power

    Go Fast Stuff
    I know a lot of people swear by the O2 Sims, but could the same result be achieved by leaving the O2s in and running high flow cats? Or do you have to run a sim if you're running boost on the GE? And as to the piggy back, I've been seeing conflicting stuff on those. Someone on club Lexus was...
  14. Passing Emissions with Turbo Power

    Go Fast Stuff
    That's definitely an idea that seems pretty straightforward to implement. The site you gave had a ton of good info in it. Definitely the way to go if I can't do this "legally" so to speak. I would definitely need to find a way to pass RPM input to the Arduino though so that when the tester revs...
  15. Passing Emissions with Turbo Power

    Go Fast Stuff
    Yeah, that's pretty much how it goes here. No visual inspections, although we don't have any independent shops that test emissions. We have to do our testing at Arizona Department of Transportation testing stations, so unfortunately, no bribes either :frown2: That is a really good idea. I...

    Go Fast Stuff
    Yeah, just to clarify, its pretty much what trowe2 said, except that we have designated ADOT testing centers that we have to use. They aren't so much shops as they are solely for the purpose of testing your emissions. But we do have some local shops that specialize in passing emissions so I'll...

    Alright, I've done a few weeks worth of research on the topic (and used the search function) across my.is, club Lexus, and Reddit, and I haven't been able to find a definite answer. I'm looking to turbo my '02 IS300. I've been looking at the options between NA-T and a GTE Aristo swap, and...
  18. Engine Shakes at idle

    Basic Help & Repair
    I'll have to wait till I get another free weekend to try that out. Really hoping that's not it. If it's at that point, I may as well just start my rebuild with GTE internals early. I haven't had a chance to look at the MAF yet. I'll have to try it. Probably should have tried it first lol. I'll...
  19. Engine Shakes at idle

    Basic Help & Repair
    Alright. Obligatory "I'm new to this forum, the IS platform, imports in general, etc etc aside, I just picked up a 2002 IS300 5spd a couple weeks ago and it has a constant, steady, shake at idle. Under A/C load, it gets much worse and shakes the entire car pretty aggressively. It smooths out...
  20. Manual Tranny 4th Gear Popping

    General Discussion
    Hey folks. I'm new around here so excuse me necro-ing this post, but I just bought a 2002 is300 and it's got an issue of popping out of 4th. Have there been any solutions aside from a total replacement of the tranny?
