    Ricing my ride

    A few days ago I was talking with my buddies and they suggest ricing my ride. I am thinking of just adding more power to it, maybe a turbo and a stock spoiler since I've seen some with the pedistal spoiler for the IS300s and it looks good. Other than that I don't know wheather to rice it any further.

    I am also thinking of just leaving it stock since it just looks good to my eyes

    Obviously the turbo!

    Then you can feel that irresistable kick in the small of your back when you floor it... yum

    Do not rice it

    Buy the turbo but not the spoiler. Ricing sucks.

    I suggest you buy a faster stock car. Don't mess with aftermarket kits, as they aren't tested extensively. In a few years time you WILL get reliability problems. Also the fuel consumption will be higher in the aftermarket car compared to a similar stock motor.
    Minimising losses can maximise net gains

    I can't sell my baby!! It is my first car that I have bought with my own money!! That thing is going to be with me for a long time. Even if I get married and my wife makes me sell it.

    It will never be sold!!

    Also I can't buy another ride I can't afford a car faster than this one because I will get killed by higher insurance rates and college is putting a hole in my wallet!

    bigger exhaust system. a Borla Exhaust, or a HKS/Greddy/Apex'i one won't be a bad choice.
    I'm dropping out to create a company that starts with motorcycles, then cars, and forty years later signs a legendary Brazilian driver who has a public and expensive feud with his French teammate.

    On second thought, everyone and their mothers are doing turbo setups these days. I say build a NA beast. Raise the compression to 12:1, P+P the head, get a short runner intake manifold, balance the block and make it spin to 9 grand.

    And please, not every aftermarket exhaust setup is just for the 'sound.'

    If he decides on the turbo, he should most definitely get a full turbo-back exhaust. Turbos rely on bigger exhausts to make their power.

    IS 300 look good stock, but a lip kit, lowered with a nice set of rims make it look so nice. There is one in town that has all that done and omg so nice, but maybe you should make a sleeper out of it.

    This looks nice just don't change the rear lights.



    This is ricer although it doesn't look like crap.


    P.S. this car loosk so much nier without a rear spoiler unless your going to be tracking(racing) the car a lot.

    i agree also because people who know alot about cars will have mopre respect for your car if its a N/A and has mass amounts of power

    I'm going to be getting a 2000 something Ford Focus hatch in a few months, and I was thinking of getting a WRC kind of exhaust and make it look like the Ford Focus rally cars of 2001-2002.
