I picked up the latest issue of the DuPont Registry and was flipping through when I came across a 600hp Lexus. It's a 1999 Lexus GX300 600horsepower (as they claim). It looks just like a regular GS300 with Fancy wheels. The ad reads "Very rare high performance Lexus. T66 Turbo and intercooler, reinforced transmission, larger piston injectors, pulleys, etc. Custom 19" wheels, 4,800miles.. Over $35,000 invested in modifications. Must Sell $53,000."..... Anyways, do you guys this could be a legitimate 600 horsepower? If so, just imagine that engine in the IS300. Keep in mind that's double the horsepower my stock GS400 puts out..

I would ask for a Dyno sheet on that. It's easy to take a guess at how much HP it be cranking out but the Dyno tells all.

Clam,
That CLK to which you're referring to is nearly 6 times the cost of this 1999 600hp Lexus GS.

T66 turbo? Why in the world is this car using a T66 turbo? That will have too much lag. You can use a TD04 or TD05 to generate more power than that and the lag won't be too much.
600hp is possible, but I question why someone would want that much hp. You cannot really use it.
