Best Intake & Exahust


Recommended Posts

I have a 2002 E-shift (stock) I'd like to increase my 0-60 without voiding the warranty. I'm in TX & haven't seen the L-tuned IS w/c I heard is a second faster than my stock IS. The Team Lexus cars 0-60 is 6.4 seconds. Does anyone have details on what to do w/ the intake & exhaust. I was told to just replace the exhaust w/ the L-tuned exhaust & replace my filter w/ a K&N or similar ones. Any suggestions or does anyone know what brand of intake & exhaust was used on the L-tuned version because I heard that the only diff. of the stock & L-tuned IS is they modified the intake & exhaust?

Hmmm... as a complete 'mod virgin' I'd also be curious to know if something as straightforward (?) as a better exhaust & air filter could produce a decent power boost for the e-Shift model. The quoted figure for the UK spec e-Shift is 8.2s for 0-60, but I figure it would take something more radical to get that anywhere near 6.2s :unsure:

Any mod that doesn't destroy the warranty or mpg would be nice :winky:

Fitting an induction kit and exhaust won't necessarly improve bhp or 0-60... but it will make the car more responsive... and remove any 'flat spots' that may exist...

It's probably the best place to start when modding a car..

ooops... my bad...

As Mat said, yes you will see an increase in HP & performance...

e.g. a new back box will add in the region of 5bhp

A complete system will add more, and conbining this with an induction kit will improve further..

The point I was trying to make was the car will be much more responsive with these mods, and is well worth doing...

Sorry :blush:
