Seller Submission: 2001 Lexus IS300 Turbo

This next car is a seller submission from Mason who writes: Unfortunately it is time to sell my car. My wife got a job in another country to I'm trying to get rid of stuff as we prepare to move. I'm a daily lurker on your site and wondered if this was something that fits. Would love for the car to go to a fellow enthusiast.  Find this 2001 Lexus IS300 Turbo offered for $7,500 in Plymouth, MI via craigslist.

From the seller:
 2001 Lexus IS300 
cylinders: 6 cylinders 
drive: rwd 
fuel: gas 
odometer: 96300 
paint color: white 
title status: clean 
transmission: automatic 
Selling my turbo IS300. Time to sell my pride and joy for the next person to enjoy. Car has 96,285 miles and the following modifications:

T60-1 turbo with XS Power manifold
Haltech F10X tuned by Swift Racing Technologies
Supra 2JZ-GTE head gasket: ~9.8:1
ARP Headstuds
New water pump and timing belt
Precision Injection 870cc injectors
Walbro 255 fuel pump
Eibach Pro-kit springs
Eibach red sway bars
New Tokico Blue shocks
SuperPro Bushings and lower control arm and radius arm
Tig welded stainless steel exhaust w/ Skunk2 muffler

Car is a bit of a sleeper. It made 300rwhp before thicker headgasket. Now ready for the next step (more power, supporting transmission upgrades).

It hurts to sell it, but I'm moving soon and its time for someone else to take this car to the next level. Price is OBO, no trades.

 See a better way to drive something turbo?
