ive always loved em, since they first came out (i was in 8th grade, i believe) So, by the end of summer I should be in the position to buy one.
I know the manual is hard to find, but i refuse to get any auto, period.
What should I look out for, what problems are common, etc?

There are quite a few threads involving people in the same situation as you. Look around (Even a few threads below yours :) )

how hard would it be to find a 5 speed with LSD? would i be better off just getting an LSD from a Supra or another Lex? Providing they fit and are available, of course.
Im not asking that thinking that an LSD from another car would be better, my reasoning lies along the lines that it may be easier to find

No, you would be better off finding a factory setup. They are rare, but can be found. Check out For Sale forum:

There are a bunch of Turbo IS300s avaliable.

But for a very clean, stock, limited SportDesign, 5-Speed and LSD. this is one of a kind:

This one is nice too. just about all the NA mods you can do are already taken care of.

Good luck and if you need anything or have any questions along the way, send me a PM.

I seen quite a few threads about people wanting an is300 lately. Search my posts, as i replied to about 9 different people about this, 4 whom just this week alone.

It would also help if you posted on the for sale forum, with the title "WTB: Is300".
You might want to edit your personel profile too, so we know more about your location, so we can see where you are and what is300's are available around your location and tell you.

Just check out craigslist, autotrader and this forum, good is300's are being sold everywhere, just depends how hard you look and how much you are willing to spend.

I recommend 2002-2004, 5 speed though, with the LSD option or any year is300 if your planning to boost, since the auto transmission can handle more.
