I was at Sound Performance in Bloomingdale getting my downpipe on my Supra swapped for emissions (btw-it passed after two tries). On the lift I noticed a silver IS300 auto, with Rmm kit molded in and some 19inch IForged wheels. It had the PF turbo kit. I talked to my guys Ivan and Max and they said the stock GE block blew so they threw in a GTE block. The car was really nice. Just wanted to know if the owner is on here. Peace

I work across the street/pond.
SP is like a couple hundred feet away.
If you want I can check up on your car at lunch or something ;-)

from what i saw the car was close to being finished. That PF kit looks very clean. I think i may get one later...How much boost were you running when you had that little accident with the GE block?

They only need to tune the car and it will be done. I don't know what the boost was at because I was not driving the car, my cousin was detailing the car and went for a 30 mile beat run with it. Cheap gas and too much boost and there goes a piston. I'd like to make it to at least one meet this year

dood!!! That totally sucks...especially since you weren't the one who broke it. I'd be disowning my cousin if it were me..Glad everything is coming back together. We'll definitely meet up sometime. Peace

Why don't you come by the pool/bbq party on Aug 2nd?

I wouldn't mind checking out your kit. I saw your car when I was at Sound Performance few weeks ago and thought its one of the people who work there. Looks pretty nice. I'm curious about the reliability of the car myself since sometime in Aug. I'm getting a turbo kit myself.
