Default IS 350 Supercharger

I have a 2008 IS 350 and absolutely love it but want more power. I've thought about trading it in for an ISF but I'm not a fan of the longer nose and the 35-40k investment.

Is there a supercharger or twin turbo available for the IS 350? If not how can I get another 100-150 horses.

Buy yourself a used ISF. There is no practical supercharger or turbocharger application available for the 2IS - certainly not one that will net 150 hp.

Your other option is N2O.

400 hp - 450hp out of this car is a big nononono. The amount of money that your gonna have to put into it and still your not gonna be close to those numbers. Do your self a favor and as ^^ said go 335.

Why? Look at dragtimes and see all the 335 running 11s. I don't see even one IS-F in the 11s. The fastest one is running 12.0 with a 125 shot nitrous.

Anything fast huh? I don't see any IS350 running 12s consistently? You can dump 10k and still not run 11s. So what proper mods are you talking about that can make a IS350 "so fast" that it can beat a modded 335? Please, entertain me.

Here is a whole page of 335 running 11s.

I don't either, but what makes you think you can have an 11 second 335 for his stated $35k budget. Not even close around here. The going rate for a nice, low mileage model is atleast that, and easily higher.

buy a c6 vette and mod it as much as you desire. you picked the wrong car if you were desiring to do any real aftermarket performance modification.
