Every time I come into this thread someone is talking about 4age 20Vs. Makes me miss my 86 MR with a 20V black top and 6 speed that much more. But I needed to get rid of it and get cars with a back seat for family purposes. While I still have my high MPG civic, I am wondering what team my new car will fall under. Team Sports car seems to be the most logical. The car in question is a 2003 Lexus IS300 sport design manual transmission with a LSD rear end. The stock power levels are pretty weak so I am swapping in a 2JZ GTE vvti engine (last generation supra twin turbo engine) with an R154 tranmission (3rd Gen supra trans). The setup should be pretty solid for 400-500 whp while still geared pretty tall with the R154 and the 3.7 rear end to get decent mpg.

Assuming 4 doors are allowed, expect me to be joining the sports car team soon.
