I read somewhere that there currently were no compatable turbochargers for the new IS but that may have changed (hey I'm deployed to Iraq, I can only keep up with so much of what's going on...)































I would say a turbo would be better, solely based on the fact that the turbo charger has worked so incredibly well in my dream car the Supra. The MKIV came with the 2JZ engine, a 3.0 inline six and twin turbos just turned it into a monster of a sports car.































I own a Lexus IS300, which also has the 2JZ engine, though tuned a little differently haha. I am considering adding a turbo for mine as well. The 250 doesn't have the same engine, but to me, inline sixes and turbos go hand in hand...































Good luck with your choice.

As far as I know I think that Lexus doesn't offer a turbocharged IS. But I do know that you can get a no turbo.IS 350 with just over 300 hp for a good deal. The IS its self is already a great deal alone.....

i agree with the svt guy sell the Is which will hold its value decently and buy a car that will be worthless in a few years. and then you would get the added joy of working on it all the time. I dont know if you can turbo or super charge it. i would start with exhaust and a chip anyway in order to get the full effect of the turbo youll need to do this anyway so start here and if you are still not satisfied consider the turbo.

You can turbo charge anything. Its just a matter of how much fab you want to do. A supercharger is not the way to go, I would look at turbos. Also to the idiot that told you to ditch the Lexus and get a mustang........He has no clue what refinement is. Typical american bonehead!

A supercharger can be great but it fits better for the america's muscle cars like the mustangs, gtos, ect. Now a turbo kit is always better for inports or japanese cars. But your IS 250 is better of with turbo
