Today was a bizzy morning. Firstly we started by swapping the OEM with the DeatschWerks fuel pump. Not plug and play as I thought. Initially I had to remove the OEM plug and fit the new DeatschWerks power supply plug. Next step was to fit the fuel pump on the holder . The diameter of both pumps are the same but the uprated fuel pump is a few centimeters longer. So had to modify sligtly the bottom of the DeatchsWerks fuel pump so as the cap of the holder would fit in place. After completion of the fuel pump swap and reseting the ECU I took the car for a spin and yes! the sesult was successful. The A/F now is between 12.1 and 12.6. Same values that I had when the car was mapped. So the conclusion is that the OEM fuel pump cannot handle 250+
hp.

One more thing to mention. The fuel pump is quite as the OEM. This is one of the reasons I chose this brand and not a Walbro.

Another upgrated that was performed yesterday after the fuel pump swap was the gearbox mount. The OEM mount was replaced by the TRD. After 140000 km the OEM rubber mount of the gearbox looked that it needed to be replaced with a new one. The new gearbox mount is listed in the TRD list that fits only the Altezza-SXE10 models but it fits ok on the IS200 series with no modifications. Straight swap.

After fitment there was no vibration in the cabin and during gear changes the small kicks that existed with the OEM mount had dissapeared. I also had the feeling that the gears change better now, but that could be only my impression.

Yes mate I agree, the shifter seems to be shorter.

Finally the TRD spark plugs arrived today. Now need to fit them this Saturday together with the Power Enterprise timing belt and a new water pump. Yes the water pump needs to be changed after 140000km. There is a small cooling fluid leakage from the water pump.

]fitted today the new water pump, BTW it is a very expensive part, the power enterprise belt and the TRD spark plugs.

Tomorrow I will post some pictures of the old spark plugs. The many dyno runs during both mapping and probably the water-methanol juice have deteriorated them.

After 3 years it was time to change to the tyres. I ordered a set of Yokohama Advan Neova AD08r tyres. I am excited to fit them on the car and test them in the track!

I got a few more parts for the Lexus today. I managed to get hold on a rare TRD fuel cap (discontinued) and a TRD oil cap. Pictures shows also a TRD radiator cap which I did not buy from the seller. These parts do not give extra hp but improve the looks!

New part added on the car. I had a new C-One underbody panel a couple years in the store room but never had the time to fit on the Lexus. Well the time came and finally it found its right home. The blue colour is the protector sticker as it came from the supplier. The actual colour is the C-One colour -> bright gold. I have not decided to remove the sticker or not yet.
