Or they can be rich, buy the car here, and ship it back to their country. My buddy's friend used to work for ToySport and he had a customer from Saudi Arabia that paid cash for the gte/v160 swap. The customer said it must be faster than his friend's Lambo :lol: it probably was!

Dan, I knew of CARIZA. However, I thought these two countries were interesting enough to mention. I don't care if other tuners have gone global already, that wasn't my point. I just thought it was cool to mention, especially with the growth of boosted IS300 owners, that we now have two new members to the boosted family. When I said "Any other turbo is300 owners outside of the US??" I only knew of CARIZA, so I was curious as to ALL these of owners that are out there with boosted IS300's since you make it sound like there are TONS.

There are a few Toyomoto turbo IS 300 down here in Puerto Rico. There is guy who works these turbo systems. I am not sure but almost positive that there are SRT in the island too. I wish i had any of them. IS 300 are very expensive over here so i can't manage to pay both the car and a turbo system. take care everyone.

ICELAND :eek: :eek: WOW

I have been there before. Look out someone is gonna die. Just kidding but it will be difficult to open it up in town. They have some nice cars there but the streets are rough and even brick some places in Reykavik. When that brick gets wet its SLIPPPERY. Traffic is horrible in the mornings and evenings since basically 90% of the people work in Reykavik and Keflavik. There are some amazing straight country roads that you could do it justice. Also, I did not see one tuner when i was there. This should be very interesting. I cant imagine having a car, let alone a rear wheel drive SRT stage 2 turbo there during the winter months. On the bright side. The women there are "HOT AS HELL".

Good job Mo. Wino, I am interested to know what part of iceland is this going to??

Why is it hard to drive in Iceland, why in reality, Iceland is the country that is nice and green, while Greenland is the hunk of ice called a country.

I didnt say it was hard to drive. I implied that around Reykavik and Keflavik the roads are not as suitable as they are here in the US. Odds are the individual that purchased this kit resides in one of these two cities and if you have ever ridden in a Turbo IS you will know what I mean. I love that place but the streets are not really suitable for 320 to 350 rwhp real wheel drive car. I bought my Turbo to get on it. Now if you are just going to have it for a show car or something else than nothing to worry about. However, if he drives his car anything like us midatlantic peeps, traction could be a real issue.

Now the roads outside the city one could definitely open that bad boy up. You can betcha the next time i am there I will be looking this guy up.

Bottom line is I think its great that Mo is shipping this stuff over the pond. And if the buyer is on .net I would love to have him chirp in. He knows a lot better than I do the enviroment in Iceland. I have been there twice and each time I had a blast.
