I spent over $5k fixing failed cam and suspension installs. Another guy spent over $100,000 on a FI build that should of net over 1,100 hp. It never got over 668rwhp and has been undrivable for 95% of the time.

So you can understand why I am always wary of forum popular shops. I finally found a great LS based shop, but that took too long. If I dig into the IS350 I will probably have to sit in the shop for a week and watch them before I trust them with my car =p
What is a "LS based shop"? I am going to vouch for Impact again. If you like, you are more then welcome to check out my car before going to Impact. PM me and we can meet up somewhere.

Are you referring to an American LS motor? Impact usually does more imports but don't doubt he can do some American motor work also. He isn't a machine shop or anything of that major swap nature but he does have knowledge of turbo and superchargers. If you have an IS350 I can tell you all that can be done to that car is air intake, headers, mid pipe, exhaust, supercharger for 5K and never street legal and only about 8lbs of boost because the Lexus ECU can't be cracked. Theres only one guy in FL that I've seen do an LS3 motor swap himself.
