haha it is a bit busy that bodykit.

heres a bit of info for those who wish to do the same conversion down the track.

yeah it is! That guy of the conversion is on here too! now rocking a standalone ecu...

yep, i've been speaking to him via his build thread on the AEM can handle ancillaries such as the AC which i didn't know was possible. Some good news came through from figs engineering in the US. getting supra TT brake caliper adaptors and race spec adjustable rear LCA sent out soon.

Also wondering since I am doing the swap I will need to swap the rear end of the altezza over? So possibly unbolt the rear cradle of the altezza and the IS200 and swap them over since I will need the drivetrain hardware? are AS200 and RS200 diff mounts different? i know the RS200z runs a 6 bolt shaft while the IS200 runs a 4 bolt setup.

Nice, I was wondering why you were going to all the hassle of swapping the engine when you could just get another car for less. Nice spec car too.

Altezza are very rare in Australia only maybe 20 nationwide. Was lucky to find this one, thats why I was going to do the conversion.

Where did you purchase the lip from? If possible, could you send me a link to that lip?

Thank you.
