Unless a supercharger kit from Stillen doesn't suck and the cars that put them on don't grenade. I like my Lexus :P

What the hell are you talking about?

I think you missed my point.

Stillen isn't going to ship out a kit w/ new rods, rings, piston heads, etc. Won't happen. That's on you to purchase if you want them.

So, when you come in here...

Typically a spike in boost is due to wastegate failure. Protective fuel cut will help here, although it would likely put the car into limp mode, but that's beside the point.

As far as proving my...

You'd be fine with a good set of winters and a light foot. But, if you're hitting up the ski hills/etc. you'll probably want the AWD.

2014 IS350 AWD F-Sport.

Got decent amounts of snow this year in Calgary. IS handled it like a rock star. Very neutral, very balanced, very predictable.

The 2.5L V6 is very underpowered. We can sugar coat it all we want, but in the end, other brands are offering less expensive cars with similar features with more performance... for less money.
