Finally, an 86 with some balls. The stock 200hp motor is weaksauce.

"A roadster is a two-seat open car with emphasis on sporty handling and without a fixed roof or side weather protection. While roadsters usually have soft-tops, retractable hard-tops are becoming more common."
I think it needs a LS3 :D

I think the car is ugly :P But I can respect the work done to it on the performance side.

For anyone interested I did a little research as I'm not up to terms with Toyota RPO's and the article only says it's a 2UR.
The 2UR-GSE is a 5.0 liter (4969 cc) engine and powers the Lexus IS-F. It has D4-S gasoline direct injection, Dual VVT-i, and VVT-iE on the intake cam. Bore of 94 mm and stroke of 89.5 mm, it will produce 423 PS (311 kW; 417 hp) at 6,600 rpm and 51.5 kg·m (505 N·m; 373 lb·ft) at 5,200 rpm.

The 2UR-FSE is a 5.0 liter (4969 cc) engine and powers the Lexus LS600h. It has D4-S gasoline direct injection, Dual VVT-i, and VVT-iE on the intake cam. It has the same bore and stroke as the 2UR-GSE, but produces 394 hp (294 kW) at 6,400 rpm and 53 kg·m (520 N·m; 383 lb·ft) at 4,000 rpm. The electric motors (Lexus Hybrid Drive) in the system add extra power into the drivetrain, allowing the combination to deliver 327 kilowatts (439 hp) in total.
The engine's cylinder heads are made from a magnesium alloy, while like the 1UR engine block it is die-cast to save weight.

Also this part, "Other upgrades that Takemura-san added are the larger diameter electronic throttle from an LS2 engine and a cone filter..." made me chuckle a bit.
