Lexus IS LS Dynos Over 850 Horsepower

By -


Someone took the mild-mannered Lexus IS300 sedan from the early 2000s and shoehorned a 5.3-liter LS V8 into its empty engine bay, which originally housed a 3.0-liter I6.  Two turbos provide even more oomph.  (Makes me wonder what a real IS F would be like with forced induction.)

Power absolutely explodes from a stock 215 horsepower up front to a pants-shittingly high 861 at the rear in a crescendo that can only be described as deafening.
