tuning my is300

Okay. I've tried searching for the answer to my question and got close but it hasn't anwsered my question, unless my question is just bogus.

I want to put a chip on my car to up the HP, like on most domestic cars. Is there a manufacturer that does it? Can someone send me a link of one or refer me to one they've used if indeed this can be done to my IS.

I would really appreciate it.

Thanks.

I would imagine that you didn't search hard enough.

Ok lrunner...

First off, welcome to my.IS!

Please start off by doing a search... try "JET Chip:", "Tuning", "SAFC"... you'll find so much stuff it'll hurt your spleen.

Locking this for now... we've typed all this out many times.
