If it wasn't $45,000 on top of the cost of the car, absolutely.
lol exactly. However, Im sure if some one wanted to buy this one, we would sell it. Happened to all the business cars that we built at Toyomoto(the sc300, rav4, etc), someone would fall in love with the car and it would get sold... :(

Be sick to have! But would not even think about blowing 45k on just doing a swap. Would rather just get a MKIV. Other than that the car is awsome non the less. One of a kind!! Props and plus rep!!!

DBW works just as it does on the first gen IS if thats what you are wondering.:)
We've been discussing the idea of selling it, and the car might be for sale very soon.
If all goes well, then the next project is the new GS350. As to how feasible doing that is, Lance is still doing research.

Well guys, the time has come to finally sell this car. Ill post it in the For Sale section sometime this week but this is just to give a heads up.

A used IS-F in good condition and low miles sells for about 40-45k. With that said, I think its reasonable to ask 45k for this car. At the end of the day, its not an IS-F in terms of looks, and all around performance(aside from straight line performance, in which this car is much faster of course than an IS-F) But this car is very unique and very special, and its something that many people have wanted to do and still want to do. This is the only successful swap that I know of in the United States. The other one is in Japan, and its a 6 speed, not an auto.

Other than the engine swap, this car is completely stock and has 34k miles on it. 30k since the swap. This car can be a lot faster than it is right now, but it was meant to be a daily driven car and nothing more than that. If anyone is interested in the car and has questions about the SALE, please lmk. thanks

If anyone would like to know info about completing the swap, Im sorry, but I am not giving any information on how the swap was done. Ill leave that to the next owner of the car if they would like to go through the wiring of the car and release that information. Thanks everyone and I hope you understand. :)

A video will be posted this week. I am currently in the middle of setting up a video shoot with "That Racing Channel" as Lance tunes their 240SX. They have quite a few videos on you tube, look em up! they are awesome!!!

whoa

whomever buys this car, well have a very nice daily driver with a lot of potential to build some nice power
He will... and given who did the work I expect it'll be very reliable...price seems perfectly fair given the massive work that went into it too...

All that said though, don't expect your local dealer to be able to do anything for ya but stare blankly if you ever do need anything of any complexity diagnosed, computer/electrical especially...given there's 0 documentation on the swap.

well this is crazy! Only thing holding me back from buying a 2nd gen lexus is its lack of power and mod-ability. But this car has it all and i know for a fact that motor can put out 600hp!+ If the owner wanted it that way. Good luck with the sale!
