Help - Blitz Kit Don't Fit My Throttle Body


Recommended Posts

OK, I bought a Blitz SUS Power induction kit for my GS, despite the box saying it was meant for Aristo Twin Turbo model. I was so excited when fitting it..that noise to look forward to.. :duh:

Started to remove factory airbox, and was ready to fit the Blitz, when :tsktsk: :tsktsk:

the pipe going from the blitz kit to the Y bend coming off the throttle body won't go inside the Y bend..they are exactly the same size..see pics..

In order to make the Blitz fit, I need to get the Blitz pipe a good three inches inside the Y bend, which means a new Y bend..possibly one off an Aristo...as I guess it's bigger

What do u lot think?

This is the plastic pipe that I need to stick the Blitz pipe into...

This shows you that the Blitz pipe is the same size as the plastic pipe

Mate.....you were a bit premature on this one, the LM kit will not work with the N/A engine.
Can you not get another bit of hose, slightly bigger to clamp over both pipes? But it looks like you might have to change anyway.

Perhaps, but I've got the SUS power kit. Can't I just get a plastic bendy pipe off an Aristo?

my thinking exactly :D

That is a perfectly good idea, except then the cone filter won't fit at the other end. I need to push the Blitz pipe inside the bendy pipe. :blush:

You only need a very small length of pipe that goes over the ones that are the same size. This will hold it together and you will still be able to use all of the original parts that you've got.... :winky: Or are you saying that it will be too long, if done this way ?

Doh! I just had an idea! :crybaby: :D

Why don't I just attach the filter straight onto the factory pipe that also has the MAF connector, and see if that offers enough room for the filter? :o

You could do .... but

1) It would lose the bling factor ...........

2) I'm sure in there tests somewhere, they would have calculated that the pipe would have to be a certain length ?

Ok, another mate of mine has said that even if I end up fitting this filter onto my car, if I use the Blitz supplied pipe to fit it, then I will be drawing more cold air into the engine than with the factory pipe, and I will be running too lean, which will cause issues..is this true or mostly :tsktsk: ?

Yes .... it's the same with all air intakes mate......... you might not actually 'notice' it ....

That's when you then get your self the decent zorst ....... and get it mapped properly ... IE Camcon ... etc ;)

TRD zausts are arriving next week, and I'm looking at the SAFC II as well.. :duh:

Notice it - puhlease...I don't drive fast enough to notice it :yawn:

Absolute Bolacks, you'll be drawing in more HOT air.

Not really a problem on a N/A, more so for forced induction though.

It's not bollox ........ I had the same problem on mine, I was running to lean.

there a big debate on TIF (toyota imports forum) and lots of data.........

best results are from keeping OEM system BUT drilling 3 * 2 " holes in the air filter housing...idea being Mr T's ducts work well getting cold air up through the bumper and the 3 extra holes let the air from the headlight area get in as well...........fir aftermarket filter......

I have actual data from Mike Morse car which proves the K&N induction kits air temp at the intake is higher than stock.

Cant comment on this set up but would wager the same is true

So I guess if I manage to fit this bleedin' blitz thingy, then I better start building my own cold air box too?

IMHO I'd box it up & sell on ebay.........get a K&N or TRD filter for the OEM housing and try the TIF option..........pop over and do a search............all sorts on there.

It's basic common knowledge that with induction kits, the engine sucks in hotter air, it's got nothing to do with more air.

The air capacity doesn't increase, it just allows air to be sucked in quicker, but with the downside of it being hotter air.

In colder weather a forced induction engine can run up to 10% more power because there's more air (denser air) which equals more fuel, which equals a bigger bang.

Basic engine knowledge.

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
