^The stock ECU will not compensate for boost. See page two and three for an explanation:

http://www.clublexus.com/forums/is-f...s-on-ebay.html

With that said, if you're not going to do the work yourself, you should go to a highly reputable shop that is willing to take the time to custom fabricate quality pieces for your possible build. The F is a tricky car when it comes to adding FI and it needs to be done carefully (although it can be done).

I read that thread which is why I made the comment. What I should have said is - the stock system has enough fuel to compensate as there are two complete sets of injectors and the system is 98% direct injected at wot. Whether or not the system can read positive manifold pressure is a different story.

If you wanted to be really cheap you could probably have everything done for about $2-3k...
And an exhaust system if he doesn't have that.
