    Yes, I have searched for a while and have come across countless posts about this, all of these are old and the download links no longer work. I was curious if anyone has the manuals on hand. The repair manual, and the body and collision manual would be sweet. Let me know.

    Literally paid 107$ to fill up on premium gas, what a pos lol. I’ve heard that running 87 octane isn’t that bad, car is already slow as hell so why not.

    I'm coming from the Skyline community and I'm not too familiar with the IS300 chassis at all. I've been looking around at a few different resources and I'm sure I can figure out the minor details. I just wanted opinions on what I should be looking for as a starting point to achieve my end goal...

    So basically my 5 speed is in the shop for tranny problems. 3rd gear is destroyed and neither I nor the shop can find a replacement gear anywhere. They want to just get a whole other w55 and the price is out of this world. What options do I have. Does anyone make new gear sets for these things...

    So I plan to do a automatic to manual W58 swap, but ive been looking on peoples swaps and I notice that the shifter is not centered with the is300 shifter area, it looks too far forwards. Is there any way to prevent this? Does the stock manual is300 plastic center piece help? Let me know.

    So I was wondering if the parts for a W55 manual swap and W58 manual swap are the same. Besides the transmission obviously, but everything else would it be the same basically? Like the manual drivetrain, can one be used for both vis versa? Let me know thank you.

    Just bought my first car at 17, actually found a manual trans IS250 with x package and had to scoop it up. Love this car, definitely not the fastest car in the world (200hp lol) but I find it a lot of fun. Any suggestions for mods? I think window tint is a must.
