is300 - Turbocharging


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I've just put the deposit down on a 2002 IS300.....absolutely stunning car!

I'm already starting to think about turbocharging her and wanted to know if anyone else had gone down this route previously.

Lots of reading has been done and I understand the engine is not made for super power but a nice 300-320bhp is possible on low'ish boost, which sounds perfect. There is a guy on eBay SJS1, who is know as Squint who has turbo'd over 60 is200 and is300 cars.....anyone have experience of him or his product/service. He seems to have built some 700-800bhp is300 as well!!

Any help advice and tips would be greatly appreciated.
