Lexus IS-F remapping ECU tuning NOVEL

Hello Member,

i am looking for a solution for the ISF, nowadays they have become more and more available at lower prices and people are starting to purchase it as a good base powerful car.

I am been looking into some solution for tuning these cars, but nothing really comes up.

Novel

NOVEL | ECU TUNE

https://www.facebook.com/NovelNorthAmerica?ref=profile

are the only ones that seem to have a solution for reflash the stock ecu.

i have logged the ISF many times on the street and dyno and there seems to be alot of potential as timing is very low on these cars and overly rich.

looking to see if anyone has looked into this platform or other solutions

i think this Novel guys are really expensive....


Thanks

biggest problem is the direct injection +port injection and the tight integration into the transmission ECU. When I checked last year there were only a few standalones with direct injection driving capability and none that would drive 8 cylinders. Novel uses the Sard programmer, which is only 1 of 3 licensed Lexus ECU programmers. The major benefit for them is to tune our flats spots in the curve brought on by their headers. I am not sure what type of gains you are looking for but better off with bolts-ons first and weight reduction.
