I moved to CO from MN about a year ago. I have a Solar Yellow IS300 with a custom full 3" exhaust and a turbo kit sitting in my garage. I am looking for someone in town to install it as I do not trust myself or any of the shops I have found around here... any suggestions? Also, where is a good place to buy wheels? I had some Limited Edition Volk LE37's on my car this winter and they got demolished so I am looking to replace them, probably with som Time Attack C28N's... are there any good local shops that can get Volks? Any info would be very helpful and much appreciated!

This is for Crazy Mikey... you may want to contact Ohio Generators at Home in order to get an upgraded alternator for your car if you are still looking. I used to run a competition system in my old car and they designed the alternator for it. I believe they already have a model for the IS300 so you wont need to pay the custom price to have one made for you. Many pro and pro comp car audio systems use Ohio alternators so I highly suggest you give them a call. :)

Im here in thornton, currently driving a Saturn Aura since I was rear ended a couple weeks ago on i-25. Last quote I heard was 17-20 days for repair work so I'm definitely up for anything once I get my is300 back.

I pieced together a turbo kit with the help of a local shop in MN where I used to live. I recently found a shop that I feel confident will be able to install and tune it properly so it goes in on 5/7/07 to begin the install. I live in Lakewood around Kipling and Alameda. :)

What shop did you decide on? What type of engine management?

Any of you interested in some oem wheels? I have a set sitting in my garage that i am willing to let go for cheap. All four have some normal road rash and 1 is a little bent but im pretty sure it can be repaired. They would be good for your winter snow tires, or i would be willing to sell them seperatly to be used as spare wheels. Let me know.

I took it to Racing Trendz in Denver. I will be using the E-Manage for a while until I decide to go for more than 6-8 psi. If I decide on going ahead with my plans to swap in the tt bottom end then I will probably go with the AEM as I have wanted one of them since before they came out lol.

Yeah, I hear ya. I'm in the tech center, and I see them all over the place. I'm not in mine a ton, because I need to do a little more work, but I take it out every once in awhile.

Possible sighting last night. Black onyx with AAC DDE kit. Think it was a bit louder than stock, but couldn't really tell. Got to chat with you for a few seconds. This was around 1:30AM heading east on 120th near Sheridan. Anyone on here ? If so it was nice to meet you :)
