Thumbs up Another JoeZ D-AFI Install and Satisfied Customer

<--------- Another Satisfied JoeZ Customer!

As everyone read on a previous thread I started, I had issues tracking my order from Carson Toyota. But to make a long story short, it was a little misunderstanding and Luis squared everyting away and provided a tracking number. So I went onto USPS and punched in the number and... BAM ! My intake arrived 1:12 a.m.was ready for pickup... So I took off work early to get my package, went home to cool off the car. 30 minutes later, I spent all but 7 minutes doing the install and now done. I have to say the craftsmanship of the intake was nice and precise, and the instructions were short and sweet. After all of that, im proud to say, I am now part of the IS-F JoeZ Fam LOL! Now its time to place the order for the JoeZ exhaust and ill be complete ! Thanks for reading!


^ And of course a thread would not be complete without pics! I also installed an aFe Pro Dry S Filter.
* On a side note * I wanted a Blue JoeZ intake but was shipped a Black one maybe by accident??? I wasnt going to wait for another week, so just took one for the team and decided to change up my color scheme for the engine bay or later powder coat to Lexus USB paint


^ Not even 500 miles on the car yet and Im already modding car!

Thanks JoeZ for making an awesome product and thanks Luis from Carson Toyota for getting my order processed and sent to me in 7 days. Awesome!

And special thanks to my Princess aka "Daddy's Little Helper" for all the help and support!

That's a 2012 and it looks a lot like mine! Notice a difference? Does it sound meaner?

Yes it is a 2012, production date was May 2012 as stated on the door jam of the driver's side... I argued for almost a month back and forth with my salesman saying they are giving the older model rims when all he said that it was the region specific rims offered to Guam... I said F that! We are just 3-4 hour flight away from Japan and we cant give those guys a call and get the 2012 rims on a 2012 car? And then finally the truth came out... Just like QQQ, Unfortunately the person in charge of ordering cars for the Lexus dealership is some lady who doesnt know her job and just clicks away without even looking at the possible options for our cars or didnt even care to click the option to change the rims to the 2012, she just chooses to be a lazy *** and tells the salesmen to tell the customer its a region specific optoin and there is nothing else available... end result.... QQQ and myself, just like every other damn ISF on Guam have the same type of rims, the 2008 model mirror face rims. Eh! i dont really care all so much cause i plan on changing the rims in the near future... it bothered me at first, but not anymore

Honestly bro I didnt notice anything at all maybe cause i just took it around the neighborhood and didnt get a chance to open her up... but on JoeZ's instructions, it said give it about 200 miles for the ECU to learn and fully adjust to the intake to get the full performance of the intake system.

I gotta love the first thing it mentioned in the instructions. Congratulatons, you just gained 4-6whp! <- Amazing LOL !

Ugh damn i wish Carson had the Tom's filter, that was my first choice, but they didnt have it up on their website and another Vendor didnt get back to me on time... Oh well I will change it out later when i get bored...

There are two Vendors on here that I know of that stock the JoeZ intake, and everyone oh here has nothing but great things to say about the both of them, I would recommend you choose who can give you the better price. Check out: l-tunedparts.com aka Carson Toyota and also VIPAutoSalon.com The instructions I got with my intake said it was from VIPAutoSalon, so I think we may have just found the source LOL
