Great Info in here...

The package comes with a hefty $2,400,000 yen increase to their standard JDM ISF price..
DST = $10,500,000 yen vs Base IS F $8,100,000 yen

Which equates to approx. $24,000 for all the upgrades..

Great way to see off the last production run of the 2014 IS F Model

Beautiful car, loving all the CF pieces, brakes, and a great way to end the production line for the ISF... BUT ^ Dang for that price? No thank you Lexus.

Love it! I like how they're stiffening up the chassis and increasing their use of CF which is trickling down from the LFA/CCS-P.

I'd love to know what they did to reduce friction and gain the power. I'm thinking different pistons and rings...

You think they really did all of that?

I guess I'm more negative and am assuming they just modified the exhaust a bit or the ECU.

Revised pistons, connecting rods and crankshaft.

l looked at the website myself. It says rings and pistons as I suspected. There is nothing you can do to rods or crankshafts to gain that kind of power.
