Getting someone interested is what will be most challenging.

I would be worried about losing that carefully tuned exhaust notes from the factory. They've apparently found the perfect combination of intake and exhaust sounds for the LFA's cockpit in the current setup.

Agreed...

Naturally, there is no way I would make it sound worse....

Depends on who is listening. Some like that deep growl, some like high revving high pitched and some like ear bleeding exhaust noise.

I prefer people not mess with the factory tuned system but there will definitely be guys who will modify the hell out of it.

We have seemed to create a great system for the IS-F.

If we do decide to make anything for the LFA, it will be done in Titantium, here in Southern California.
More than likely, keeping the sound the same, while adding more HP..

I really would love to see it. Hopefully, a Lexus LFA owner will take you up on that offer and maybe the LFA would sound even more bada** with that system.

I thought it's exhaust system was/is titanium to begin with? If anything you should look at the 'race cars' exhaust because that sounded like the LFA but a little freer, ya know?
