Subbed... and Very Interested, but like someone said before I feel that having a few kits a different price points and a lower starting point than that of the srt kit would be optimal, although I'm not sure how feasible this would be as i understand each kit would have to go through development. Before someone flames me, what i meant by a lower starting price point is that the srt kit starting at 6.7k is a bit pricey for the average person so something closer to maybe 4.5-5k would help get people into the door so to speak and like was stated earlier I'm sure they would come back to upgrade when they had the chance to do so.

I know this thread is kinda old, but any update on this? After seeing your work with the dezod headers, I think you guys would make an amazing turbo kit

Just like any other retail item, demand drives everything. With no real pursuit of this avenue from people in this community, I am sad to say it probably won't happen unless demand starts to pick up.

An entry level kit near or below $5000 would be great if it was COMPLETE, especially if it came with something compact and quick spooling like a GT3076 or GT35 sized turbo. Piecing together a custom kit using quality new/used parts, the cheapest I think it can be done for is ~$3500before tune and ~$45000 after tune (obviously personal ability and who you know plays a factor) That doesn't include suspension/tranny/clutch/internal work either.

I agree with this statement. I also think that good hot/cold side intercooler piping could do wonders for the IS community since most places that provide them never seem to get the fitment right - OR - they fit but they are overpriced/come with terrible customer service and long lead times.

I think a turbo manifold, and a intercooler kit for the IS300 would be a great idea. In my opinion Dezod doesn't have to develop a complete kit since everybody's setup is different. Some people like to choose their own compressor, engine management, gauges, injectors, exhaust, etc so you can never satisfy everyone. That said, a complete kit would also be nice for some of us who don't want to piece together our own kit.

If Dezod does produce a turbo manifold I think it would be popular for the NA-T guys since most of them run reinforced ebay manifolds, and most turbo manifolds available for the 2jz only fit the GTE head. If it's affordable and has the same kind of quality as the Dezod header I'm sure people won't mind paying a little extra for it as long as it's not priced like the Full-Race manifold.

As for the intercooler kit, I think everyone can benefit from this whether their running the GE or GTE. For me the only intercooler kit that looks like it fits right on the IS300 with little to no modification is from SRT, but everybody knows their customer service is terrible. I seen the cxracing, and tacotaco kits some guys run on the IS300 and to me it looks like it involves cutting and fitting the crash bar just to make it fit right. Not saying it's a bad option, but I just like my modifications to be reversible if I ever decide to go back to stock.

Luckily I'm not in a rush to boost my IS300, so I'll just stay tuned to see if Dezod does come up with something while I save up.

You make some good points, blkaltezza. If they had a full kit then in theory it shouldn't be any work for them to NOT include a turbo. I never considered the IDEA of gauges or exhaust as complete LOL so I suppose to be COMPLETE by definition it would have to be included. Perhaps complete could mean as far as the down pipe, a couple options for injectors/BOV/WG? IDK, I can see now why they would hesitate to do this!!

Something like manifold, intercooler kit, down pipe would be nice if they all had Dezod quality and IS300 specific platform.

The problem, and what I think Dezod is saying is, there are numerous threads like this and on every single one you get "I'm definately interested" or "Yes that's what this car needs and I'd buy one for sure" statements.....

Then they put the time and most importantly $$$ into development, announce it.....and hear crickets....cuz all those interested parties and their wallets are no where to be found.

Not saying you guys are like that but that's probably the biggest problem with Performance part development....

I've been following you for quite some time, and I have to say you are extremely respectful and courteous to your customer base, with respect to other companies of course.....

With that said, I would IMO like you to just do a mani/DP versus a full on TURBO KIT. More of a staggered approach versus R&D into a kit, which would be far more costly (correct me if I'm wrong in that department).

After which there's sufficient demand for the exhaust bits, then move unto a kit, incorporating said FI parts and your already proven turbo mani/DP.

My 2cts.....
