Anybody know of any shops that can install turbo kits and more. I'm not talking about some whole in the wall shop that does not know anything about IS300's or import tuning. I need a trust worthy specialist that has been around awhile. I looking to boost the car this summer after registering the car in FL. :p

Thanks in advance.

Yup...talk to Malekreza11. There are tons of people on this board that can vouch for his expertise and the quality of his work.

San Diego... Talk to REDIS300, he had a shop do his install. They also re-did his piping and looked like they did a good job.

his car caught fire, i took mine to Malek
Snaps.. thats right... LOL.. Its nice that you did take it to Malek. I'd avoid any shop that hasn't worked with the engine. Speedforce in El Cajon has worked on our engines. Group5, Pann, Engenuity (sp?) are shops that are very knowledgeable about Hondas, Acuras, Mitsubishi but when I talked to them about the IS, I got a lot of 'uhh, yeah we can do that..'
Whoever you go to, make sure you talk to all their clients, not just the happy ones, but the not so happy ones.

That's just down the block from me. I'll go check them out and see what they have to offer.

Do they only do turbos? Or do they carry minor bolt-on stuff too?

Rev'd up Kustoms in Mira Mesa...I don't personally like the guys because of past events and the inability to return phone calls about prices, but I know they specialize in 2JZ engines (supra's mainly) but they did a custom turbo for an IS300 (not amazing not bad either). Talk to Malek though...I've seen his work...it's good.

Don't was to much time, with SD tuners, they aren't many that are as familiar with our cars as Malek, dude can tear down our block and put it back together in and hr, i know because i watched him do half of mine, when he installed my cam gear... Plus, if you've haven't seen pics of his ride trust me it is one of the cleanest gte swaps i ever seen, he's a perfectionist and insures his work... PM him, when you get your kit, you wont be disapointed...
