Take the hood off and you'll go even faster!

Yes, the elevation does suck, but it's all relative. All of us N/A cars up here are at the same disadvantage as one another. Of course the F/I people feel the altitude less, though. My 350 feels plenty fast, BUT my previous car was a 1.8T jetta, so that's to be expected. heh.

If you ask Lexus: Purchasing the F-Sport carbon fiber Engine Cover makes the IS faster. $800
If you ask someone who knows about cars: Thats total BULL!

the covers also act as a sound suppressant. with them off, more noise sounds like more performance to the ears. tends to fool the butt dyno
