That mobile dyno had all sorts of malfunctions and could not get an accurate read, or any read at all during my run.

Will be putting the car on a proper dyno whenever I get a chance within the next few weeks to see what kind of power the car made with the new additions.

The engine is the same as the IS350 (2GR-FSE) so it's going to make the same gain's. Nothing different by much.

For such a big car, not having a V8.. the V6 has just the right amount of power to get the car around quickly enough.

All this car really needs is about 100HP more than stock and it's perfect from all aspects.

Hi .. has anyone bought and installed the illuminated door sill set from Sewell ? Is it a perfect fit ? Possible to DIY as the installation instructions seem complicated ? Pls advise, thanks !

Lighted door sills would look nice. I'm getting down low before I spice up my interior.

That's an OEM option, I doubt fitment would be anything less than perfect

What springs are you dropped on? Do you have spacers on the car? And do you have a video of your car with headers and exhaust???

Springs are made by a company in the north east region - not sure if they will go into production. It's a bit too low. lol no spacers, just proper fitment! There's a video floating around but the sound isn't the best.

I was going to wait on the F-Sport springs before ordering the wheels. If you haven't lowered it the height looks good enough for me. Don't want a slammed nor a off road look.
