The Jet – 1027HP Lexus IS300 Street Sleeper Sedan

January 17th, 2019

This is a must see street sleeper sedan that is loaded with up-side. It is a 2003 Lexus IS 300 and it is built to move – it’s for sale, too (see the links below the video). With ice cold a/c, navigation, stereo, and factory leather seating, this sedan is as comfortable as it is shockingly fast. Take a look.

First of all, the owner (Jerry) bought this car brand new and immediately (6-miles) brought it over to Toyomoto where Lance treated it to the full treatment. From there, it has been built stronger and faster in stages, until it reached the pinnacle of today. Jerry rides with the boost turned down (approximately 750hp) most days, because the “kill” setting is just too much.

Under the hood we are treated to a masterpiece of the best Toyota has to offer. The 3.0-liter 2JZ block is built, balanced, and blue-printed. The bottom-end is loaded with Brian Crower (BC) pistons and Carillo connecting rods. A Head Games (1,500hp rated) cylinder head really puts this build over the top, providing maximum flow for the massive turbocharger. Speaking of turbochargers; it has a Garrett GTX 4202R with dual ball bearings and dual Tial blow-off valves. A Getrag V160 6-speed manual transmission and stock Lexus LSD differential help transfer all those ponies to the pavement.

So, climb into the posh passenger seat and let this driver (who has been compared to Jerry Garcia and Manson) take you on a ride – through the streets of Mexico – that you will not soon forget.
