Hello mate car looks very nice i like the wheels but would waste my money on getting it remapped as you need a new ecu to do that ! plus the manifolds from ebay are good also

you could get them to do it but it prop be cheeper for your mate to wire it in i know you get a bypass lead with the aem one so you can wire it in and then bypass it to drive it to the dyno you will get a little more power and the mpg will be better ive got all the proper lexus workshop manuals here with everything got them from lexus them self (im not ment to have them lol)
