nice mods :D

i think your setup can handle a lot more power thought, think you should make it boost 8-12 psi and see somewhere between 250-300 whp :D

what grill is that? not OEM is it ?

I have not updated my post lately due to not having much free time. Well I got a set of crystal-clear fog lights, which I believe they will look smart on the car and a bit different from the rest of the IS on the road. I also decide to get a couple of ARC cool fins to fit on the intercooler pipes. I have not found many reviews on the web, but I was tempting to buy them and have a go. ARC declares that it can decrease the level of temperature up to 10C. Well I will inform you once I have them on the car. So I have many parts to fit on the car once I return home soon.

Today I installed the clear crystal fog lights on the boot.





I believe they look much better than the oem red lights. Next mod in the list is to fit on Tuesday the Supra brakes.

Some more parts to be fitted on the car.

ARC Cool Fins



Megan Racing Toe bars

Since I have a new TRD cluth and a Jun lightweight flywheel waiting to be fitted I found that both parts would work better with an APP direct clutch line, so I ordered one from Japan:

A few hours ago I installed the new flywheel and clutch kit. And what can I say. I am speechless. This mod is a MUST if you have a supercharger. The car has totally transformed. You can feel the power of the car going to the road and of course it leaves you with a big smile. The acceleration is something else. Lightweight flywheel, upgraded clutch kit, supercharer kit and short shift kit is a must for a Lexus IS200. Now on the road the clutch is a bit more hard to press to change gears but i got used to it very fast. Also it is to drive in traffic. The car does not kick when i start from stop and also during reverse-parking. I can only say now that the clutch now engages from almust the start and not half way of its travel.

Here are pics during installation:

A few more updates. I changed the differential mounts, which appeared to be nakared, and the clutch line with the APP high pressure line. The new differential mounts made a big difference. The car does not kick so much when pushing or leaving the gas pedal. Now regarding the high pressure clutch line i have not seen any differences yet...

I am looking for uprated bushes for the front suspension system. Well I fell into these parts.





What do you think? Is it worth having them? I think they are just oem parts painted red with uprated TRD bushes.
