Re: Pat's Turbo Altezza

Nice car.

No they did not do a LHD altezza, it would be pretty easy to convert with a LHD is200/is300,
pretty common to do in Dominican Republic I think.

Re: will a td05 fit a greddy turbo manifold

Re: Lexus IS200 with Altezza Cluster

I think a few americans have done it on is300's but not sure about anyone with is200.
As far as i know its not too hard too do but revs are different cos of different engine and oil pressure guage doesnt work without adding a correct sensor.
