anyhow back on the topic
im trying to find a Is250 with vdim and TCS
it seems the australian IS250 Sports Lux (top model) has VIDM and TCS
so i think that'll be a starting base
and is350 motor g box + ecu is around 4-5K USD

I can't speak to how they're optioned in Australia, but VDIM wasn't offered on the IS250 at all (in North America anyway) prior to 2009 models, at which point it was standard on all of them regardless of optioning.

Don't forget to change the rear differential too, since the gearing is different from 250->350

Not sure where you'll get a 350 diff if they don't sell the car there, but you're getting an engine and transmission from someplace, so I suppose the same source might have a diff for you too.

Knightshade, can't you tell you're talking to people who don't know what they're talking about at all? Reading this whole thing has given me a really good laugh.

Dual clutch automated manuals, and sequential manuals are used in most performance and race cars for a reason. Swapping the 2GR-FSE engine into an IS250 is seriously one of the stupidest things ever. These aren't cheap, simple cars that you can easily modify and make better. They're extremely complicated and precisely manufactured. They are easy to ruin, however.

Also, Australia is getting the 350 http://www.pressroom.com.au/press_re...navSectionID=2

well if he would stop acting like a dam jack A$$ all the time maybe ppl would try to be decent when talking to him but he always shoots ppl down like they are sorry P.O.S just cuz the don't know everything like he thinks he does.

Just because knightshade says it cant be done doesn't mean it cant. maybe hes just to much of a giant vagina to attempt it himself and doesn't want anyone proving him wrong.

Maybe he's become cynical from dealing with too much stupidity? I mean look at some of the idiotic posts on here about swapping an IS-F drivetrain into a 2003 GS or this one about swapping the 4GR for a 2GR. Just because it can be done, doesn't mean it should be done.

There are a lot of people who, apparently, think that being an automotive "enthusiast" means ruining a well-made car by putting all kinds of junk parts that don't actually improve performance, but rather compromise the engineering integrity or reliability of the car.

So what if its a stupid thing to do. Its their shit, their money if they wanna waste it so be it. He doesn't have to harp on the same shit over and over again just tell them once and leave it be. Just like he told me turbocharging an Is350 wasn't plausible running more then 5 psi, he was full of it. The cars running 7.5 psi on the street with 93 octane fuel and doing just find. And yes it has a couple thousand into but the customer loves his car and was happy with the way it turned out.

My point is just because ppl have crazy even stupid ideas doesn't mean he has the right to talk to them like they are retards.
