absolutely NOT...:nono:

completely different engines and electronics.....

you can try to get custom manifolds made, remember its a V6, so you would likely want to do a TWIN TURBO set up on an IS250

You can use the turbo,wastegate and cooler depending on size for fitment to the front of the new car..

Single turbo kits on V engines work just fine, We have made plenty single LS1 kits that fly. A little more thought put into the manifolds but its a can do.. The cooler side of things are also easier for piping with the single kit unless you go vertical core (not a good idea for efficency reasons in that car) hight..


Good luck with your new car and plans

the new gen IS motors are VERY high compression motors & will be VERY tricky to boost properly & Stay safe( IE: intact) .... it will be VERY easy to overboost & blow the motor unless you go thru the expense of reducing compression some how Herad gaskets .. .etc ... I assume it wil lcost GRIOP o cash to pullthat motor & pul the heads off to reduce compression

i hear those motors are like 15k fro mLexus also if you need t o replace one...

Good luck!!!

keep us posted

Yea but the kit probably cost more than the 2jz motor. Besides, the 2jz is easy to work with.
