Chipping Is200 Sport


Recommended Posts

Hello all !!! ,

I just bought a 2000 Is200 Sport 3 days ago and i have to say i love it. There is only 1 thing that is bothering me and im sure lots of other people also having same problem. There does not seem to be no life in the engine until i hit 4500 RPM. Would a chip lower this and get rid of the flat spot? if so what is the best chip on the market for this engine? Someone also said playing with the ECU would also sort this out?I would appreciate all coments posted thanks

Any of you guys out there that have fitted the CamCon already.

1.what revs have you got it set at for the engine to kick in at?

2.what is the cost of mapping and any other costs to have it fitted?

3.did you use the one from prolex?

One thing I would say is that the camcon isn't going to make a huge difference, unfortunately the IS is one of these cars where electronic mods don't make a whole big difference, if you can afford it look into the supercharger kit, increases bhp and torque figures by a third, basically makes 4th gear feel like 2nd and 6th gear feel like 4th. A big improvement.
