New Owner

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am now the proud owner of a 2001 Lexus is200 sport, and was wondering if any of the gurus on the site would know of any company that provides good reliable chip tuning, and any other advise. Thanks in advance

I wouldn't bother mate. TDI sell the unichip (I think they still do).

What sort of performance you after? And what's your budget?

Hi and Welcome to the LOC :)

Like adie says theres not much power/torque to gain on N/A engine cars for the money.

You would be better off putting the money towards a Super Charger B)

Chips.

Well, would like just a little bit more, it fees like it could do with a few more rpm at the top end to allow less drop of between changes, minimal power increase to be fair. but if its not worth while i would not bother.

Supercharger = +50 bhp £2500 - £3000

Turbocharger ?????

Cat back exhaust, performance manifold, induction kit / high flow filter. This will give you minimal performance gain for a reasonable ish price..

What's your budget and what performance exactly will YOU be happy with?

Hi,

Did you look at the IS300?

That might have been more to your liking straight out of the box power/Torque wise and around the same sort of mpg as the IS200.
