A friend recently bought an IS300 and someone at the *dealership* told him that there was a chip that would give him 50 more horsepower. When he said, "Man, why did you spend thousands of dollars to get more power? The dealership said I could just buy a chip", I told him to buy the chip and then we'll do a quick race. Haven't heard back from him...

There are no performance chips. Chips are mostly carbs, fried in oil, and season with LOTS of sodium. I would hardly call that performance enhancing. :p

All kidding aside, there are no functional performance chip for our car.

Honestly, for 50hp, you are looking at a few thousand dollars. And, for 75hp, it would probably be cheaper to get 200hp with boost. 50hp is about what you can expect from heavy NA mods (very expensive). To go further than that NA, it's expensive enough that you should have just gone FI in the first place (also very expensive).
