I'm not a fan of fmics. Cause you have to hack up the whole front end. And get rid of the bumper reinforcement.

If you are serious about this though, you can buy my baller 20g and SPEARCO tmic. Best/highest flowing tmic there is and JR is making 500whp+ with one in his FXT.

There's a brand new hta fp green setup locally I've been eyeing if I got asking price for my current parts (which are in tip top low mileage shape)

What you really need is a stroker kit with a billet crank, then you could throw meth on it cause you know you want to.
Seriously if you want to go cheap get some forged pistons and used STI rods they are forged and plenty strong enough for 350hp

Min - I support this decision. This article tells you everything you need to know about how capable these cars are: Street Legal Lexus IS-F Owns Dedicated Race Cars In Time Trials


Street Legal Lexus IS-F Owns Dedicated Race Cars In Time Trials
By Rob Krider
Aug 8, 2010 1:00 PM

NASA Time Trials allow for almost any car to compete for the fastest lap time on a legitimate race course. One guy rolled up in his daily driver Lexus and crushed everyone.

There all sorts of ways to compare the prowess of cars: dyno numbers, Ring times, or back-of-your-toilet car magazine 0-60 numbers. For every one of those statistics there is usually high drama and scandal involved (Which kind of dyno was it? Was it tested at sea level? Where the tires used at the Ring O.E.M.? etc.) The National Auto Sport Association (NASA) takes a lot of the horsecrap out of some of those numbers and allows drivers the opportunity to prove which car can really get it done at the track. Show up with what you've got and run it flat out. No excuses.

Dave Schotz took his daily driver Lexus IS-F, the same 4-door sedan he carts his kids to daycare in, and headed to Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, CA, for NASA's Time Trials. He ran the car bone stock (other than a set of Hoosier Tires and Carbotech brake pads for track duty) and hit 150 miles per hour on the banking.

Regardless of the number of doors the car has, obviously the Lexus is not shy of performance. The car won the TTB class against dedicated trailered racecars with full rollcages, no interiors and heavily modified suspensions.

But we can't give all the credit to Toyota Lexus, Dave Schotz, founder of the popular place to **** and moan about racing, SCCAForums.com, is no stranger to winning races. He is a three time SCCA solo national champion and two time NASA road racing national champion. After establishing himself as a legitimate racer, he decided to destroy his reputation and joined the endurance race team of Krider Racing at the 24 Hours of LeMons.

After the event the stickers were quickly pulled off prior to driving the car home. Rumor has it Dave's wife didn't know he was taking the family car to the track.


AND...video of Fae's test drive:

I think a de-stroked long rod will be much faster if you want *****-out power to dominate.

Or do like kaiser says and throw some drop ins with rods and have enough motor for an easy 400

Or he could put the money in a paper bag and put it in the hatch of the FXT and park it in his garage. Just as fast.

FMIC will fall off the first time you jump WUBIEWO over that bridge.

What you really need is rally skid plate.

Best thing I've built for the Miata is a small skid for the front end.

Doesn't matter 'cause the guy who pulled it off the truck already raped it around the 'hood for a mile or two at redline.
