I'm a newbie and my IS is totally stock. I'd like some advise from some of you who have been with the IS300 for awhile. I have about $1000-$1500 spending limit right now....What will give me the best gains?

47HP?...........riiiiiiiiiiiiight. You'll be lucky to get 25. Get a 75 shot of nitrous if you want something you can actually feel.

Yep, get the NX wet kit with the GenX-2 upgrade. An APEXi S-AFC2 would be good with that setup also.

So that will only give me around 25hp? Basicly I should wait and not blow my money(like 95% of everyone else does) and get together 6 G's and get some boost. Then my question would be.....With a good basic knowlegde of engines, is there a kit that I can get shipped to me and set it up myself with the use of a good tool shop?

That would be a shocker to me, if you can't get 25 with that setup.

Most definately.

TRD yellas
PLP strut bars.
Very good points. Most peeps think when they hear "bang for bucks" as in speed. You can get speed from upgrade in suspension (handling). It reminds of when I used to work out everyday at the gym, and I see those guys with the gigantic bicepts (arms) and chop stick skinny legs (chicken legs). I would always crack up on that. Hope you guys get my analogy.
