Go to SouthSideImports.net and do the stage 1 turbo setup. $3k installed. Also someone just asked about this eBay kit like a week or two ago. People said it was a BAD idea.

Thanks! I think so, I don't have it yet though. Not sure if you know it but the auto transmission on the IS300's can handle a ton of HP stock. Way more than than the manual can. The manual can only handle up to 350hp. I've been going back and fourth talking to them a bunch and it all sounds very reliable. I think all the people on here that have Lexotic in there names are part of that group or whatever.

My name on SouthSideImports is Nicademus without the 323 by the way.

first. the auto tranny cannot hold TONS of power over the manual. you're talking about a difference of 50 rwhp or so. the auto tranny with valvebody upgrade can hold about 400 rwhp reliably.. thats not a TON more than the manual.

as for your last comment...

please don't confuse B.O.D.I. and Lexotic Concepts. we are not one in the same. Andy aka MKIV_4dr is a member of Lexotic, but is the main man behind B.O.D.I. He also is a co-founder/member/admin of SouthSideImports which is our forum/team, but again, not one in the same as B.O.D.I.

Lexotic Concepts and SouthSideImports both support Andy in his attempts at providing a reasonably priced solution for boost, however we are not the same entity.
