add those turbos

ReviewThe 5-speed is definitely the way to go. Add aftermarket air induction, a turbo, and a back-cat exhaust. This alone will up the performance value to a 10. I want to directly port a 50- shot or 100-shot bottle of NOS on mine for some real big horse power gains. Some aftermarket turbos, although reaching about $6,000, offer a boost of up to 500 horse power! Improved handling and a slammed stance can be found in an AEM suspension system. I would think that this car would have a little more room in the cabin since it is a sedan. And I've always liked 2 door coupes so much more. It's still really phat for being a Lexus.
Best FeaturesI love the 5-speed. Butter doesn't even come close to the smoothness of the IS's transmission.
Worst FeaturesI know I wouldn't mind a 6-speed or a 2-door version. That would be hella cool.
