Most performance mods need a watch and timed course to demonstrate actual improvement. Few deliver the advertised claims. Many are actually worse than stock. The best performance mods are made to the driver.

Emotional arguments - They're not just for chicks anymore.

269mph in 8th gear, that would be insane

Compare the IS-F's rear gear to the M3's 3.846. I know why the M3 needs it (less torque), but what are the odds of getting a slightly more aggressive aftermarket gear on the F?

Near zero unless the IS-F starts showing up with the OEM differential in some racing series. The diff for the IS-F is unique among 2IS cars, and only the IS350 diff has the same bolt pattern to mount the unit in the rear subframe. I seriously doubt the IS350's diff is up to the task of handling the IS-F's input for the normal diff service life (300k miles) but you might could put the 350 piece in for a test. It's a 4.083:1 ratio, so it would make the IS-F a tire shredder.

I was thinking something in the 3.23 range.
