Hello everybody. I've been lurking in this tread since 2000, but never posted. I finally decided to post on the board because I'm happy with the result of my turbo performances. Special thanks to SRT & crew members. I have put 7,000miles on my kit without a single promblem, no shifting problem. I have 83,000mile on my 2001 IS now since I've bought it in july 2000.

Today, I ran @ MIR with best time of [email protected] with a 2.1 60'. Worst time of the day was [email protected] I have a total of 9 runs. (1) 13.4, (2) 13.5, (3) 13.6, and (3) 13.7 with the worst mph of 104, so I'm very impressed with my purchase I made.

What's up Doublins?

Hey what's up ID?!

WOW those are great times, you have improved so much!

I'm so happy to hear that your car is running well and you have finally gotten some good track results- your trap is higher than my highest trap of 105... my best was also 13.4, and I have a 5-speed... looks like your car is running really well.

Keep us updated.

This is the new stage 2 kit from SRT, right?


I'd like to know how it's shifting smoothly, too........


Also, a 13.4 with a 2.1 60' sounds great! How fast do you think this kit would run at it's fastest?

How does yours shift perfectly? Did you get their valve body upgrade?

Just smashing the pedal from a stand still without racing the rpm makes shifting from first gear to the second gear hangs up, but I don't use the smashing style while on the track. Try racing up your rpm to about 2,000rpm while on manual mode with your ECT power button on, and make sure you shift before you redline around 6,200 rpm and you should have no shifting issues. And no, I don't have any valve body upgrade nor any shifting kits.

Thanks everyone for your complement.

How is your stage 2.5 coming along, Wino_ll?

Doublins car is getting finished up this week. Then my emanage is going in and being tuned so all the Stage 1 and 2 owners can have the e-manage option. After that, the tranny and other stuff will be installed. I should be done early to mid-January.

Getting the following: All new gauges (TRD pod with Greddy gauges), wideband, e-manage with laptop hookup, v-161 6 speed tranny, driveshaft, b&m/SRT short shifter, 2mm headgasket, return fuel system, cam gear, and finishing my SS brakes lines....I hope I'm not forgetting anything.

:eek:

at what boost?

9psi, daily and track driven.

lil' IS 300, next time, try reseting your ECU by taking off the positive terminal of the battery and cool down your engine bay area, before running down the track. The car pulls much faster and harder that way.

Best of luck to you Wino_ll. I'll join you too hopefully before the next track season. My goal is 400rwhp with a torque converter and tranny cooler, hope that will put me deep into the 12's. All I just need is a street fast car capable of holding is own. Best of luck once again.

Anybody thinks that a 3'' turbo exhaust cat back with an hks cam gears and changing the head gasket and racing up the boost to 1 bar will yield the 400rwhp mark?

Yeah, add a return fuel line and standalone to that mix and you'll be good to go.

Actually, I launch also at certain RPMS. Usually around 2000-2500. However it would not shift out of first probably because of the tires spinning and the power being put down. Usually first gear isn't a problem, but the 2-3 shift is just annoying.

You have to let off the gas at a perfect RPM so that it'll shift...anything above or below it won't shift well.

Anyway, I got my best time by launching at 1500rpms...that way I didn't spin my tires so much and the car was actually able to shift out of first. I know that if the 2-3 shift was perfect, I would have hit mid-13's, cause it takes a while for it to shift.

2-3 isn't as much a problem for me...but the 1-2 is def a problem. It revs fast and just sticks there. So stupid. You have to get it like perfect tos hift properly....IMO, that is not a solution.

I hope the tbko esk v3 will work, otherwise I'll be going to Toyomoto.

I doubt srt's will ever come out
