A few words about Lexus V8

Welcome to the largest Pre-Wired Lexus V8 Engine supplier in South Africa

Get to know more about Lextreme

Lextreme was the first in South Africa to purchase and run the Lexus V8 1UZ engine  and get it to run on the standard OEM Lexus engine management system. This was a huge step in the Lexus V8 conversion industry in South Africa as the only available aftermarket systems could not run the drive train as Lexus intended. This was as a result of the engine management and transmission management on aftermarket system do not communicate with each other causing a very harsh gear change amongst other problems like having to dyno tune every time the weather changes.

In 1999 –
We purchased the first Lexus V8 engine and imported the management system with all the components to get it to run. There was a huge amount of research that went into the design of the electrical system that would give the motor the ability to function as the manufacturer intended. All the circuits are laid out in a way that makes it pretty easy to trace a problem that may occur. We also built in a method of reading the built in trouble codes without the use of a diagnostics tool. This made it very easy for a person to fault find irrespective of there knowledge in automotive electrical systems.
In 2003 –
We looked at this as a lovable hobby. The industry grew at a rapid rate as people got to know how they could improve there vehicles with the beauty of the Lexus brand and the exceptional engineering quality of the Toyota. We never saw it as an industry but a love for the motors.
In 2005 –
A lot o people were battling with the continuous troubles with remapping of aftermarket systems for there Lexus V8 and it was about time to offer a solution to always having to get there vehicle to a tuner to reset there management systems. We decided to open sales of Lexus V8 engines to the public and offer a system that would work as though it was from the factory. Of course this is also a function of the quality of the install which has its own issues. Lextreme at first supplied engines to some of the largest importers in the country but this also had its own problems as there was very little technical support as a result of us not dealing directly with our clients. We then started importing and selling directly to the public, this had tremendous growth in the company as we could offer a product that was supplied by one company. Nobody as a customer wants to be chased from Peter to Paul trying to find who takes the responsibility for a faulty unit. We have additional websites you can visit lextreme and lexusv8engines
