    Going to sell my 1992 Lexus SC300, I'm the 2nd owner, only 105,000 miles on her, very rare 5 speed model, pearl white, light tan interior, its just a stunning looking car.

    Figured I never have the skills to do a proper turbo build on this car, which is what I wanted to when I bought it. Turbo build is a lot more involved that I originally imagined, replace trans with something stronger, stronger axles, stronger rear end with limited slip, remove head from engine and insert thicker headgasket to give a lower compression ratio. That's all in addition to putting on the turbo on the naturally aspirated 2JZ-GE engine.

    My buddy had the same exact sc300 with double the miles when he bought it. He did everything you said plus supra suspension and a cage. The thing was stupid fast. If you bought it and didn't go for it idk that you'd know what kind of fun you're going to miss out on...

    He did it all for cheap too, got most of his parts of forums and craigslist. He didn't know much when he started, now he owns an entire garage of insane imports. Google Montu Motors.

    Can’t seem to justify selling the 2002 Tundra 4wd (as much as I would like to buy a new truck). She has taken good care of me. All my other past car selling decisions were easily justified. Sold/traded due to upgrade or due to the mechanical necessity.

    This one was pretty hard to sell. Wrong time of my life for a project like this.
