Rare R154 Factory Manual, JDM Import Toyota Soarer 1JZ-GTE

This was my first JDM car, an imported Toyota Soarer. I owned it for nearly 2 years, and I have to say, It was a wonderful car to own!

The build quality and materials used all over this car were nothing short of incredible. You can tell this came out of the Golden era of Toyota where everything was over engineered and the car was built to last. It really felt as substantial and solid as it looked. Everything on the car, especially the drivetrain and suspension components are big and “heavy duty”.

You can see how people easily put a good 400+bhp reliably through this Chassis. I never quite got there with this, but I found the stock 270-300bhp was more than enough, you also get the peace of mind knowing that everything stock adds longevity to the car.

I think I will be getting another one in the future at some point, check out my posts on importing and the gallery of pictures from my ownership.

If you are a first time importer like I was, I expect you’ll find this beneficial, If you are also looking for reference pictures for various aspects of the car, some of the ones I’ve included might help.
