Hello everyone! It's a pleasure to be part of a group that shares the same love! I just bought my black IS-F on black Friday, and I'm interested to see the modifications you did on yours. :)

I've had my Mercury Metallic F since last saturday. There's a thread here on my exhaust mod. I don't think I've been here long enough to welcome you, but I'll say welcome aboard anyway.

Thanks for the warm greeting, lowrider! I checked out your mod on your exhaust. Looks pretty serious! I still have to learn more about my car to do anything. Is it true that there is a supercharger available for the IS-F?

Welcome to ALL of the new guys and gals here! I've >

had my Black/Black IS-F since the end of January and am still loving it ! The only "mods" I've done to date are to replace the OEM air filter with an Amsoil one, disconnected the secondary intake vaccum hose so that the intake remains open all the time :) and I had the dealership install the F-Sport 19mm rear anti-sway bar. oh, I did tint my windows with 70% sides and back.

Suggestion if I may, take your time and really learn how to use the transmission in all of it's various modes. That is what took me the longest to understand and get down. The car will do a lot more then you think if you allow it or use it within the design peramiters :)

Thanks for the welcome, Jeff. Lou, do have an idea how much will the supercharger cost when it comes out? Dean, I'm still debating whether to tint or not, although I still have to get used to heads turning my way, lol. Yes, I was wondering about the use of the transmission modes too. I'd like to use it to it's full potential.

Welcom!
Best tranny combo IMO is sport and manual shifts at 5K, that will get you up to 5500 before it shifts. For now leaving trac on. Not sure the SC will be worth it until you hit the warrantee mark. Have fun and stay away from the police if possible :D

Welcome to the site!! Congrats on your purchase!

No one has any idea bout a supercharger yet. There was a Greddy one that appeared at the SEMA show in November but since that, no one has heard anything official about R&D or release dates. There is also a rumor that Lexus will come out with one for the F if the demand is large enough (there is a thread on here about it). I haven't heard anything about that in quite a while.

The only real mods your going to get are going to be an exhaust and intake from SRT (definitely want to search this forum before doing that), a Joe-Z exhaust, a Joe-Z intake that should be released soon and cosmetic mods. There is also a company that is working to tune the Lexus IS-F ECU for a reflash. There will be more info about that soon. If you need any websites or want to look at any cosmetic mods, let me know and I'll give you some sites as well as email addresses.

Like it was said before though, take your time with the car and get to know it. It is quite an amazing car from the factory so you might only want to make a few changes. Welcome again and congrats :cool:

Thanks for the welcome Fig and BigMikeISF! Yes, I have to know this baby inside and out first before I do any changes. Like you said Mike, it's already amazing the way it is. Sure, shoot me some websites on cosmetic mods. Thanks a lot.
