Welcome!

it’s not a terribly great car for mileage, unfortunately. New spark plugs, coils, and wires along with a fresh air filter and a MAF cleaning is where I’d start.

Well, I’d actually start by checking the mpg. About 18 city and 23 highway is “normal”. Yeah, it’s kind of a pig.

Jeez. I get about 16-19 combined. Depends on how often I hit boost (answer: every time I drive it).

but yeah, pull the OBD codes, and replace the bulb or ballast or both for that low beam. The problems you’re reporting are pretty normal for the car and it’s age.

Sure they gave it a 2jzge! They didnt bother to offer us the 2jzgte!!!! Notice all the slush box transmissions. Notice the loss of LSDs on manuals in 2003. A rarely know thing, 6-speeds in Japan. How about a AWD Sportcross (Gita). Look at TRD support - no supercharger(I did see a prototype once.

I got off track. Consider that Landcruisers often had a Chevy swapped in, cause its straight six got such bad gas mileage. Seriously, our cars lack so much power, so where does the gas go?

So my 2003 B01B has NO lsd?
How to tell if my IS300 has LSD?
Look at the sticker on your driver door sill/jamb, look for the area that reads "A/TM"
You'll see numbers such as B02A, B02B, B02C
A=no LSD
B,C = LSD

was a mid-year thing. I had an auto 3.93 LSD put in my 05.

Would it be possible to just take internals from Auto LSD from 01' and swap them into mine.
Possible to another auto.
If the swap is for a manual, I dont think it will work. At this point I would save some money and weld it.
