Hi and welcome.
The sound will depend mostly on what you put on for exhaust system, (headers, mufflers, cats).
I'm sure a Lexus V8 will be quite reliable, but what are you going to do for a transmission?

Hi the tansmission will be off a subaru.
What do you think?
Also can you recomend a brand of muffler that will give me the most authentic sound.

I would go for anything aftermarket and fab the rest.

Hi,
I'm building a Countach 5000 and have used the Lexus 1uz matched to an Audi 500 gearbox. There is a website called Lexstreme that provides a lot of information. I have used and aftermarket ignition system called Dictator and my motor rev's comfortably up to 8000rpm. Best value for money. Oh by the way, I'm from South Africa.

putting a Japanese power plant would be a nice idea! The soft acceleration would be nice compared to putting engines with high horsepower.
