I'm getting an 03' IS300 this weekend and was wondering whether I should get 5-speed or E-shift. I wanted to get 5-speed but I've read about some trannies giving up when people boost their IS's. The e-shifts seem to be responding very well to turbos without any problems. So should I be worried about the 5-speed problems on turbo'd IS's ?

If I could do it over again, I would seriously rethink my tranny decision...but hey...i'll deal with it as it comes.

If you're going to get boost...you should probably get an auto. If not, get a manual.

it also depends on how bad you want to switch gears yourself and how much power your looking for...the W55 can hold 300-350 rwhp any higher is risking it...and you can also think of an R154 or V160 conversion...anyways goodluck i personally would get my manuel everytime but thats just me :D
