OK I'm currently a owner of a beautiful 2002 Acura RSX Type S, and i've been wanting an IS just as long as I've wanted a Type S..I pretty much learned and studied on the steps for boosting up to 400rwhp. Knowing the IS300 is the baby supra when comes to boost, I still question on somethings like where the power band begins when the turbo is spooling till redline. IS the Supra's bottom ending stronger and better and worth swaping..or just rebuilding? or just adding a turbo kit and do a tune on stock internals?

soooo convince me to sell the S...

Not worth boosting. If you have the extra cash, and are ready for problems then boost.

But if you are young, low on cash, etc. DONT BOOST.

If you want a boosted car that bad get a WRX, STI, EVO, etc.. Or even a Supra.

Boosting a naturally aspired motor just creates problems.

not unless tuned properly and know about what you are doing.

anything could go wrong if not worked properly, right?

This post doesn't make sense. What are you saying that the N/A Supra and the TT Supra have different motors? no clearly they don't, so your statement makes no sense. Just because it doesn't come with a turbo from the factory doesn't mean it won't be reliable when boosted.

i think he means that since it was from the factory, it was meant to last long and not have problems since it was made with the motor.
