Looks like those prices are just for the turbocharger.

Still Learning...

Does anyone know what the stock is250 transmission is capable of handling in terms of power? Also, if you were to swap a 2jz-gte into an is250 Im assuming it wouldnt bolt up due to the v configuration of the new motor.

What about these guys:
Squires Turbo Systems - Turbocharged Innovation!

I'm sure if you wanted a turbo kit, they'd hook you up-though your ecu would hate you.

you can try to get custom manifolds made, remember its a V6, so you would likely want to do a TWIN TURBO set up on an IS250

You realize you're replying to a post from 5 years ago, right?

(and it's kinda funny that the "I'm gonna turbo my 2IS without having done any research on it! just watch!" threads where we never ever heard from the guy again go back that far...)


Anyway, Sewell Lexus sells a kit to do what you're asking... but it costs an insane amount of money:

If you have HIDs now-

And if you act now you'll save $400 off the $4000 price. Damn is that an expensive changeover
