At last! Here are a few pics of the install and parts

Parts utilized:
- JUN 2JZ-GE flywheel [2001M-T018] (5.5 kg steel chrome-molybdenum)
- ACT TS5-HDMM IS300 Clutch kit
- W58 flywheel bolts [90910-02103]
- Custom 1/4" x 80mm slave cylinder rod (semi-spherical ends)
- Redline MT-90 transmission fluid
- OEM Toyota drain/filler plug washers [90430-18008]
- Mobil 1 synthetic lithium grease
- PB Blaster
- My trusty torque wrench
- Elbow grease
- Nikon D80 camera with 18-200mm zoom lens

Torque specs (for your reference):
- Clutch cover x flywheel: 14 ft.lbf / 19 Nm
- Flywheel set bolt: 36 ft.lbf / 49 Nm
- Transmission drain/fill plugs: 28 ft.lbf / 38Nm

My first impressions:
- Pedal is ~25% lighter than stock and friction point engages a little sooner but absolutely no noise and OEM smooth
- It does seem to rev faster but does not drop RPMs quickly at all
- Very minimal chatter at low RPMs ~2k when lugging but only noticeable with windows up and radio off
- Starting the car makes a different, more distant whirring sound
- Shifting with my B&M is smoother than ever
- Stock flywheel is freaking heavy compared to the JUN!

Special thanks to everyone who contributed to this project: Member 2jzz (I highly recommend this guy he knows what he's doing!), kponti, TH Motorsports, Toyota, JUN, Lowes, my pencil, doumo arigatou... mista robato :p

It looks good. Driveshaft makes a one piece shaft steel or aluminum that is much lighter than stock.

Why did you need a new slave cylinder rod? Is it required when you use a Supra clutch? Pics of the new rod?
i think to compensate for the thinner flywheel. forgot to take pics of it, but it was just a steel/zinc 1/4" diameter bolt cut on both ends and rounded

cool. i got the same clutch with the fidanza flywheel. i just got the car back today and i love it. i also added the Figs CDD Delete and a stainless clutch line. so smooth, light, and progressive. lexus should have put a similar setup in from the factory. + rep for DIY
