Question for the tuner car people---> - January 27, 2013, 01:12 PM

Who makes what for performance upgrades (intake/exhaust/programmer) for a 2007 Lexus IS250?? Car is manual trans, rear wheel drive.

No I'm not putting on a turbo. I already own 2 turbo vehicles and that build never ends.

If there is a local shop that can handle that stuff, do good work and provide quality parts I'm happy to give them the business.

Thanks

Mach V does good work if you are willing to spend the $$. Honestly if you're not going turbo, most of the upgrades you can do yourself, then have a reputable shop just tune it.

Mach V and Ptuning are the places most tuner guys go to.

You're going to spend a lot of money and get maybe 10HP out of your car.


horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take the wall with you

Research Mach V before taking your car there. I will leave it at that.

My friend spent well over 15k at Ptuning on his Scion. They treated him pretty well...but they were sort of slow to do so. However, they are more of a Totota/Scion/Lexus kinda of shop so I would be inclined to say take your car there. Their shop car was a very fast TC but i'm not sure what they have at the moment.

Honestly, you aren't going to get much out of the IS250.
I don't believe there are any flash tunes for the IS out there. maybe one or two showed up since I last looked at the IS stuff. I would just ignore flashing the ecu.

Intake and exhaust will do good for sound improvement, but that is about it.
gains i believe are around 10hp if that. But you can make it sound nice.

IS mods are really intake and exhaust for sound, coilovers and wheels for looks and some body components if you want. Otherwise its a whole lot of $$ for very little HP

go on my.IS - Lexus IS Forum and research it.

Don't waste your money, just keep it clean and well maintained, if you already own 2 "fun" cars, my 2 cents...

Piggybacking...

I have a Equinox with the 3.6 from the Cadallic CTS, any tunes out there for that?

It has the high flow exhaust and an intake, and Im just looking for a tune and or chip, GM uses this motor in a bunch of applications but no one wants to sell the SUV crossover upgrades.

For a car that you rely on day in and day out I would leave it at intake/exhaust when it comes to engine modifications. But that's just me and I've had my fun modifying cars in the past along with the headache they bring.

Exhaust and a quality set of wheels would really transform the car, I would veture to say suspension but that's one realm that will require a lot of money for the right comfort.


Chris, my suggestion would be to trade it in for the 350

I took my M3 here HPF performance parts & accessories | HorsepowerFreaks
gave them a bunch of money and got it back a few weeks later. I am pretty sure they do Asian imports.

Curious to what you mean by this.... I know the owner Dan personally and have done plenty of business with them with my old Subaru wrx. I do agree that ptuning is more known for toyotas but if it's just intake and exhaust any exhaust can handle that no problem. I would just do it yourself.
