Ive read and head that it slips timing which causes lots of problems. a lot of people dont really like the HKS or AEM because they are a 3-bolt instead of 5-bolt. Go with Titan, Fidanza, Jun, or unorthodox.

This is from the MVP Motorsports website

AEM Exhaust Cam Gear for IS300:

We do not recommend these 3-bolt cam gears. We've had one of our Supras slip time with these installed and 2 more customers have found themselves stranded on the highway because of similar problems. There are other brands that are of higher quality & better design.
