Performance Upgrades, What's Available?

So I love the RC but I don't love the extra weight nor the lack of acceleration in comparison to my 2009 IS350 which feels so much faster.

With that, since the engine is a carryover from 2006,...

Still puzzled how 221lbs can make that much of an acceleration difference. What bolt on parts are available for the 3.5L and what type of gains can be achieved? I can't justify $30,000 more for the...

I don't blame them for saving cost by reusing a good engine but they could have at least tweaked some extra ponies out of the engines since they made a heavier car. I'm really hung up on the...

You can get similar horsepower or better for less was my point, $30,000 less if you go with a Mustang GT 5.0. While I agree you're getting a much more refined, aesthetically looking car with the RC,...
