That car was owned by droo-p

Another guy drove the sc430 in 2009, Yoshioka's status in D1 in 09 wasn't as great as in previous years.

Steve - I am also building a 95 Supercharged, 5 speed converted, dual sunroof Previa. It's going to be sweet!

I think the SC430 used in D1 was running the 3SGTE.

This sucks, his own cars are amazing and he is a beast behind the wheel in them. If he is doing this for the sponsorship, then it is totally understandable.

i know what you mean... forrest has been building dope cars since high school and i didn't even go to the same school as him lol. but if drift emporium is gonna let him pilot their sponsor car, by all means do so but make it suit forrest's style by putting an 2j in it or let him pilot a ls430 or a gs350 with a 2j if its a lexus platform they're going for.

John and I (Joe) making the motor mounts for the Tundra 3URFE swap. The SC430 being originally built/sold with a 4.3 Liter V8 allows a surprising amount of engine bay room for the huge Tundra 5.7 liter 3ur. Note how far back the engine is able to be located to the firewall!
