definitely, that old engine needs a lot of work before even thinking about usable boost :wink: ... check out the Lexus owners club UK, a good few have tried to turbo the 1G-FE over there, usually end with a hole in the block :(

I'd say stay clear of it ... if it wasn't done right it will be a right money pit for sure ...

A car is only as good as the map, u could buy a car from japan with all the most expensive parts in it , and have it blow up easily without having someone good to map it.

Bear that in mind if u are thinking about bringing something like that in. :wink:
