No surprise this undertaking already. If one looks at the amount of space between the engine block and radiator there is ample room to put a SC.

Hmmmm...


1) IS350 = Same Engine as GS350
2) IS350 has no tune = GS350 has not tune
3) IS350 + supercharger = run rich ---> GS350 + Supercharger = run rich
4) Some supercharges actually hurt the HP rating back in the IS350 section
5) Most put out 40-50 whp w/o tune running lean ---> right way is to run meth, but you will still run into issues with pulley (hmm i wonder why S/C kits never made it to mass production for IS350? other than LMS which was a flop)---> comression ratio is another factor but I wont get into that as its been stated many times

So while this is cool in all, 3-5 grand later, still not practical, or efficient

I am guessing its the kit from this car

I may be wrong however.... Just wanted to share my two pennies... None the less i will look forward to seeing the car at sema

Hit the nail on the head sir.

same kit, same issues, same amount of power and no tune.

I was going to piece together another kit since I have all my LMS pieces laying around and decided not to. The only kit I would consider running is the HKS and that's only IF they make an FCON module compatible with the new GS ECU, possibly tweaking the IS FCON to work if anything.

However, an intercooler will look nice behind the F SPORT bumper and wald kit at SEMA
