That's a basic upgrade, someone posted what it actually does, I don't think it'll handle the power they're saying it will....Toyomoto made one, you can find it on Ebay.
eBay Motors: lexus is300 toyomoto style valve body upgrade. (item 320227926797 end time Mar-20-08 11:45:14 PDT)
Ive though about picking one up myself.
you aren't just getting 3 new rods with the SRT. Maybe you should research before assuming that that's what you're paying for.What Ive heard is that with the SRT one, alot of what you are paying for is the name. I went with the ebay one becuase I never heard anything bad about it. I always heard it worked great. If I can get the same quality part for 250 bucks cheaper, Im gonna do it.
if or when you do complete this let me know the outcome... vids... opinion...What Ive heard is that with the SRT one, alot of what you are paying for is the name.

Bump for the desire to learn more. I'ld really like to get the above questions answered. I've searched to all hell on this board and just need a little more help. Thanks.Whats the difference between the various brands???? What type of metal is each? Is Toyomoto still in business? I've noticed their site says they moved to Miami (which is local for me) and will update later. I tried to call them but got an answer machine. I like SRT products, but $300 for 3 little rods!!
What does PFS charge? Whats their site?
Good to hear positive feedback on a boosted auto car.I thought I would chime in here, as my brother in vegas has a toyomoto VB and he is the 3rd owner of the car. It has been boosted since 01' bought from the dealer and sent directly to toyomoto and Lance put the kit on. This car has made 425rwhp at 17lbs and has been that way since day one. My brother has owned the car for a year and half and has never had any issue's with his VB. So if its a true toyomoto VB then it should handle 400-450 no problem.
Just thought I would add this to the thread as it comes from a reliable source and I knew the 2nd owner as well and he never had any issues what so ever.
