Default Is250 Supercharger Kit

I been going back and fourth over 3 weeks now with a company about a supercharger kit for my IS250. It includes the following:

Supercharger assembly, mounting brackets, idler pulleys and accessory drive belt, high-flow air filter, supercharger inlet duct, hardware accessories, fuel management computer, extra fuel injectors, blow off valve, intercooler.

What do you guys think is a fair price or what you would you pay?

Check out Arma Speed. They actually have Dyno data etc for a 250. Kits 5-7 k though. But they do have management / piggy back

Who have you been speaking with? There is a company in So Cal who sells one (the one Jon Jon) had. My buddy is currently having it installed now. It's about $5,500-$6,000.
You're 250 won't be as quick as a 350 either.

Its worth depends on the estimated power the supercharger would output - we all know that each added HP has a cost associated with it. If the numbers are impressive enough and the kit is built by a reliable tuner with a proven track record when it comes to forced induction platforms, then it would be worth at least $5k.

It's not.

For less than that you can trade your car in for a similar age/miles IS350 and add double the hp (without voiding any remaining warranty either).

I wouldn't do it.
Embrace being low and slow

Besides how often do the IS-F's and IS350 owners get to REALLY use that power less they go to the track?
Visits to mexican highways don't count either.
