Default IS performance

I am kinda new to IS 2nd gens. I would like to get my hands on one soon here, and before I dive into it all head long I have one simple question about them:

Can you turbocharge the AWD models?

There's no reason that you cannot. You would be a pioneer!

For what it's worth, supercharging has been nothing but reliable on my is250 RWD. Aside from having to change the supercharger oil every 6k miles which takes about as much time as an engile oil change, there is nothing else to slow down a daily driver car. I daily'ed mine for about a year (15k miles) before i retired the car from daily use and now it's just a weekend car that stays clean for shows. lol

RWD or AWD, the motor is still the same. granted im sure drivetrain loss will come into effect in a major way with the AWD, there is no reason it cant be done
