Hi All,

I'm thinking of getting a car with the above engine, probably a Lexus 2003-206 era, without the turbos.

This I believe is the engine which came in the original supra.

Who would you recommend in the UK as Toyota/Lexus tuners?

Can a turbo be added to say a IS300 or GS300?

Dunno anything about these but Whifbits do a lot of Supra stuff , might be worth dropping them a line

Yes, it can. It's worth being aware that there are lots of other differences between 2JZ-GE and GTE engines, so it's not as cheap or easy as simply ordering the missing turbochargers from eBay and bolting them on the side, and the ultimate power potential is lower than the GTE. That said, it's been done and kits do exist. The general term for fitting a turbo kit to a naturally aspirated engine is 'NA-T'.
