      I have the same question for an IS20 hybrid. There was some talk that the torque low down would be too much with the IS20 hybrid vs. the IS38 but I’d like to hear from personal experience.

      I am actually more worried about the energy across the shifting elements at high rpm - more of a dynamic torque issue vs static holding torque at lower rpm.

      But hopefully someone chimes in!

      Don't.

      The auto trans in these will NOT accept the power.
