Lexus Tuning Tips and Modifications

Tuning your Lexus

We review the best tuning options and parts for your Lexus

Lexus established themselves as a luxury car maker and even borrowed engines from some impressive sources, such as the Toyota Supra engine. This makes the rear wheel drive Lexus platform a great tuning project base to work from.

Find the best Lexus mods, performance parts and upgrade tips from our common sense tuning guides. We are currently one of the fastest growing car tuning clubs around and certainly rank as one of the friendliest Lexus clubs around.

Avoid the common problems and faults Lexus suffer from by reading our tips and guides which are frequently updated as new parts are released. Please join our very friendly Lexus forums and swap engine tuning ideas with like minded Lexus owners in the engine tuning forums.
