TEAM JAPSPEED DRIFT CAR ON THE ROLLING ROAD
This week we have had the pleasure of tuning the Japspeed Lexus IS200 fitted with a 2JZ engine.
The car is fully kitted out as a drift car and the Lexus body hides a 2JZ engine.
Racing the Lexus this year is Anthony Thompson; Japspeed mechanic, who has been given the opportunity to be driving in the UK grassroots series…Hel DriftCup.
The Japspeed IS200 has seen some action over the years – it has taken plenty of abuse from some famous faces including Formula D veteran Ryan Tuerck, Gymkhana Grid Champion Luke Woodham, and Japspeed brand ambassador Rick Van Goethem. The Lexus has been out of action over the winter months for some TLC. The original set-up had a twin turbo 2JZ engine but is now running the single turbo on a Syvecs ecu. Hence the need for the car to come to ADE Tuning for mapping.
With the car strapped down on to the rolling road we began the task of mapping the Syvecs ecu.
We ran the car on the rolling road as we wrote the map for the Syvecs ecu, carefully monitoring the air fuel ratio etc. Once the car was making good power within a safe parameter, we made the phone call to Anthony to let him know his car was ready for collection.
We couldn’t really go on a test drive with this one 😉

ADE Tuning would like to wish Anthony and Team Japspeed all the best in the upcoming competitions 🙂
