Never enough power!

Hi Everyone,

So it seems that regardless of what I'm driving or riding, at some point I feel I need more power.

I took my stock zx7r and ended up turning it into a race bike, which wasn't cheap.

I took my Talon TSI and upgraded the turbo and boost, again not cheap.

I sold both those toys and bought an IS250 AWD as my everyday driver.

I absolutely love this ride but not surprising, I crave more power.
What are some realistic numbers guys are getting with mods, without adding boost?

Maybe I should just get another toy car and lightly mod this one.

So you bought a V6 IS250 (A gorgeous ride might I add), knowing that its around 200HP... and now are not satisfied with the power, and you know you could have test drove it and read reviews beforehand as well?

You sound kind of spoiled to me -- no offense.

It's well-known and in reviews that the AWD models have a little less oomph than the RWD model. Also, the IS350 isn't that much more expensive if you are already spending that much money... and is 306 HP. Maybe you should have checked out that model?

I had a IS250AWD, if you are seeking power that's not the car for you and there aren't any aftermarket parts worth put into to increase the power in reality but if you are looking for traction, luxury and comfy ride then you made the right choice.
