Not really much to see, really. It comes with four very nice exhaust tips, but I prefer the factory look. Here is the only pic I have of the exhaust at the moment. I will say that, directly from behind, the titanium exhaust piping (four pipes) is very attractive:

Firstly, you did a great job. Am sure you weighed the wheels and tires combo. Mind sharing the weight of each end? Thanks!

How much did the exhaust cost and where did you buy it from? Are you in the bay area? Would love to hear it.

Amazing work thus far! Thoroughly impressed by the selective mods you've chosen. It definitely pays to do the research and wait to see which ones fit your style best.

Sorry I didn't respond to this the first time through. The ride quality of the HKS coilovers is better than the 2010 OEM suspension. The ride is firm, yet compliant, which is tough to do with any suspension. With my OEM wheel/tire set-up, it was about perfect for me. With my wider wheels and tires, there has been a very slight degradation going over certain types of bumps. That said, none of this has changed my opinion about the coilovers, although I hesitate to make recommendations about coilovers since one man's pleasure is another's poison.

Normally, this is one of the first things I would do, but my summer has been pretty intense so far, re-doing my wife's kitchen, rebuilding my shed out back, working on this car and doing a lot of work on my red Supra. I still have the OEM wheels and tires (still mounted) so I would like to weigh them and my new set-up to see, exactly, what the weight differences are. If I am able to do this, I will report back with my findings.

I am in southern California and, no, I will not be installing the headers myself.

I purchased the GReddy exhaust through SP Engineering at its introductory price. That price rose to $3995 as of September 1, 2011. Initially, GReddy made only 15 sets of the exhaust because of its concerns about market acceptance. It's my recollection the exhausts sold out quickly, but I have nothing to confirm this. You might want to contact GReddy directly to determine if it is still producing this exhaust or has future plans to do so.

Hello Ken,
As always, you have done a incredible job of compiling all the best parts out there and putting it all together to result in perfection...nicely done. Your DPE wheels look perfect; perfect size and color to bring out the aggressive yet elegant nature of your USB IS-F. You should put together a photoshoot of your beautiful Supras and your F...Darshana S...

Got to thinking about this a bit more and realized that Tire Rack publishes weights of the tires it offers for sale. I checked and, unfortunately, the information is incomplete because it is no longer offering the Bridgestone RE050A Pole Position tire in 255/40/19, the rear size of the OEM tires that came on my 2010 IS-F. Anyway the Michelin Pilot Super Sports, my replacement tires, show a weight of 25-pounds for the 265/35/19s I have in front and 30-pounds for the 305/30/19s I have in the rear.

By contrast, the Bridgestone 225/40/19s that came on the car weigh 26-pounds. As noted, the 255/40/19 is no longer offered, so I checked the weight of the RE050A, a lesser performing tire than the RE050A Pole Positions. This tire weighs 28-pounds but it is unknown if its weight is the same, or different, than the higher performance variant. Hope this helps.

Darshana,

Thank you for your very kind words and words of advice you have provided me while I have been assessing my mod options. Once my normal photographer is back on his feet, I will have him do a photo shoot of all three cars. I'll PM you when this is done. Thanks again.

Thank you for looking into the tire weights. You seem to be a guy who is into details and I am striving to be the same, personally and career wise. Also, I must say you made the most sensible choices for you car and the end result is great. Hopefully, we get more updates re you car.
