My Lexus LS400's Exhaust (Part II)
This is after I got the piping done from the cats back. It's 2.25", and an
X-pipe coming soon.
Car doesn't sound nearly as raspy as that in person, but is much louder and
It's also lowered on Tanabe DF210 springs/Tokico HP struts, and riding 18"
SSR A-Dish wheels.
1991 Lexus LS400 - Custom Exhaust
Was debating with myself for a week on whether I should get the Exhaust done first or find a decent set of non
"ghetto" looking chrome 18" rims and tires for my LS. Finally decided on
the Exhaust since I still don't know
what kind of rim style to go with still.
Did a bit of research on muffler shops in my area and one stood out among
many, JPG. According to the local car community in Ontario, JPG in Oakville
seemed to be a pretty reparable shop with a long list of very pleased
customers so I sent them an email asking for a quote. I was emailed the
next day with a price that seemed quite fair so I called them the next
morning to schedule a time to go see Phil, one of the co-owner that sent me
the email reply.
A few days later I drove down there to speak with Phil and to schedule, he
was very friendly and explained everything I needed to know up front and
got me a spot early in the morning the next day since I had traffic court
in the afternoon (stupid tickets...). Needless to say, hours later I was
wondering if this was the same timid car I drove in.
I'm more than pleased with the results as my LS sounds so beastly at just
the right RPM. I spotted a bunch of drivers today looking around to find
what was making the rumble because no one expects an LS to make this kind
of sound. So anyone in my area that feels kinda skeptical about this shop,
I highly recommend them.
Please give feedback and let me know what you think and or suggest. Also,
check out the pictures I posted in the link bellow =).

First start up of my Toyota 1UZFE V8, LS400 running off Toyota Crown ECU,
burning off all the oil i squirted in the cylinders while it was sitting
around! Thanks to Phil for lending me his test loom setup and all his help.

This is my 1990 Lexus LS400. It has a custom 2.25" Exhaust with magnaflow mufflers. I got rid of 2
of the 4 cats. You can see my build at cardomain.com.
