Project Ruze The UK's first all-Japanese RX7 V8?

UK-Based IS200, 1UZ-FE Turbo!

This car was built by a chap called Marcus who is a member of the Outlaw Jap Club – It’s a Lexus IS200 with the 1UZ-FE non-VVTi engine. He’s also then strapped a whacking great turbo to it. Sadly before he could finish the build Marcus had to sell the car to make ends meet, so now it belongs to a guy called Asi who has been rebuilding it from the ground up.

Original build thread is available here:

Asi’s continuing build thread is here:


I'm the one actually trying to build this thing!
