There is no such thing as a chip for the IS300.

I coalesce the vapor of human experience into a viable and logical comprehenshion.

The closest thing that exists to plug an play is the Emanage Ultimate with the plug and play harness. One of the members here has a decent NA base map for the unit that is good for a fairly stock car.


I would, however, not recommend this for your customers application. The Emanage Ultimate wont provide a much higher "peak" power as much as it will provide a higher average/fuller power band. Also, it's quite expensive.

If he wants more power I would recommend getting an exhaust cam gear and retard the timing and also get a mazzuri header. Those will give him the most noticeable increase in power.

Although the Emanage Ultimate with Plug-n-play harness is one solution (you also need a tuned map...), I'd say that a SRT intake with the matching Race ECU (it's a small pretuned piggyback) would the closest to a pretuned plug-n-play "performance chip".
