hey, guys
Is there any validity to TRD making a supercharger for the IS300 and Stillen making a turbo kit, as I heard that the IS300 is very similar to the fabulous supra engines?

I don't own one yet.....b/c manual is the only way to go!!!!

The TRD Supercharger is for the 3.0L V6, not the I6 that's in the IS. There is no word on anything forced induction for this engine available from TRD yet.

Rod Millen is working on a turbo kit, as is Toyomoto. The engine in the IS (and GS3) is the same as in the normally aspirated Supras.

I look forward to a turbo on my automatic IS, I lose too much boost between shifts on my miata.

The IS300 2JZ-GE engine has some minor modifications as compared to the Supra engine...

Keep in mind that the N/A versions may not be built as strong as ones designed for factory turbocharging. Among other things the compression ratio of the N/A engines is higher than the factory turbos... So - just adding a Turbocharger to the IS300 will not make it "equivalent" to a 2JZ-GTE Supra turbo engine.
