Hey guys I saw another turbo kit today for the IS! Turbonetics is releasing a kit for our cars. See the pics below:











They have not done a dyno on it but they plan on running 8psi, it comes with intercooler, and everything shown, plus two additional injectors, and fuel controller.

Hope you guys like the info! :wink:

I don't know if looks mean alot when it comes to turbo kits, but that kit looks great! Someone needs to kick down M3This with a grip of dots for his SEMA reporting.

if you look closely, all six cylinders merge into the collector near cylinder #5 and the wastegate input comes off of the centralized collector, where all six cylinders merge. its hard to tell because it is very compact, and the pic is from far away

From what I've heard, Turbonetics Inc. and FMAX Fabrication are now working together in producing many turbo kits, including the Lexus IS300.

In many "decades" ago there was a post about FMAX producing a turbo kit for the IS300, but never went any further than that. FMAX does have a turbo for the Lexus Line right now, but only for the GS and SC series. So this could be a FMAX set up.

I'll try and find out more about this set up for everyone today! I'll ask on pricing and see if they have any sepcs (turbo size, ect) for everyone!

:wink:


Yea and if anyone wants to hook me up with dots I would be very thankful :lol:
