550 HP Sleeper Turbo 2JZ Swap Lexus IS300 - One Take
I completely, unashamedly, LOVE the first-generation Lexus IS300. It's a clean design, with a simple-yet-durable interior, great build quality, and Lexus' reputation for reliability behind it. In the used market, we'll have a first-gen IS300 over an E36 or non-M E46 BMW any day of the week. But thanks to Toyota's Mix-n-Match supply chain, the "JDM Aristo" turbo 2JZ Swap is fairly common among enthusiasts. Dan's IS300 is a total sleeper; completely stock on the outside, mostly stock on the inside, but under the hood is a 550 HP, single turbo 2JZ engine mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. This is Dan's daily driver, which he has used as a commuter car for the last 2 years. We are insanely jealous.

The Lexus LFA Gets An Oil Change
Quite a long process if you ask me! I had the privilege to witness the oil change service on a Lexus LFA. It takes a good 30 minutes to even get it on the rack and then the oil change takes about 2 1/2 to 3 hours. The LFA has a dry sump system for the oil to prevent engine oil starvation through high speed corners and lowers the engine's center of mass. My daughter actually made an appearance in this video too. :) This system holds 14.8 US QTs and it is required to drain, fill, cycle fresh oil, drain, fill, top off and change filters. Seems like alot of work huh? I'll be uploading a ton of pictures of this oil change to: www.Razzi.me/Kinger124 Be sure to check it out!
