You'll probably need to wait until the title is in your name so you can take that to a Lexus dealership, or possibly one of the online outfits, and show proof of ownership so they can cut the key...

They're all flawed studies, IMO. Look at the Planet Soarer link that dricacho provided in post #9. They talk about the tuning (low RPM torque vs high RPM power) attributes of resonators, then go on...

I hope that was a question not a statement, otherwise it was as incorrect as it was difficult to follow.

You changed two things simultaneously, though. Unless you built a good heat shield for the cone filter, it's pretty commonly accepted that they worsen performance on the SC.

That diagram and Lexus' CA/non-CA terminology is super confusing. I misread the diagram quite a few times myself!

It's actually a third resonator on non-Cali cars. I made the same mistake for awhile, too, as many others have called it that.

First I've heard of it. You could pull the shifter bezel out and see if something funky is going on with the linkage below. These trannys are real cheap to replace, at any rate.

I've hate, hate, hate chrome wheels for that reason. Water gets in around the bead and eventually corrodes the chrome, causing it to pit and flake, resulting in an uneven surface that lets air out...

It's a resonator. A few of us have removed it. I haven't noticed any ill effect, although I later learned that they're more for intake tuning (at least on some cars) than noise reduction. See: ...
