I almost forgot! You mentioned a buddy who flow tested filters and his results came back with apexi being the highest flow. Do you recall if one of the filters he tested happen to be a Tom's filter?

Yeah it was EMAN in Ventura, however I believe it was between a big coned KN filter vs a apexi filter that was 1/4 the size and it suprisingly outflowed the kn.

Yes Sir! Thanks for the stickers man they are on the intake now and it actually makes it look a lot cleaner. I never like stickers too. Oh and btw do you think Lexus made that intake the way it is on purpose, I'm not kidding when I say the car likes to jump forward with a little touch of gas especially in sport mode with your intake on. It may be added instant torque and quite dangerous for the people that dont know, but for going fast it feels good and the response is there for people who are heavy footed like me. Literally makes a drastic throttle reponse from normal to sport with the intake it actually feels like it makes it a different beast than with the oem intake.

How'd it cost you $88? If your referring to buying a filter, you've gained cheap and easy hp for the car it added more than 5hp/5torque one of the best bang for bucks imo especially on a n/a car, even on a stock intake system.

Yep, Swapping out my K&N oil based filter. However I've recently checked my MAF and it was dry, not oily at all. But since you guys have flow tested the apexi I guess ill give it a shot. I've had the JoeZ Pipe for a minute. BTW what part of cali do you reside in, Ive owned my USB F in the Downtown/ Mid city and I've only seen maybe 5 in 5 years all outside of LA.

Did you dyno your car on the same day once with the stock set up and then with the modded set up? How many runs did you do for each?

Yes of course... Same day dyno on all pulls, 3 consecutive pulls for each one with ten minute cool downs after the 3rd run on each setup.

Now the real test would be if the gains stick, which was the problem that members from the original comparison thread were having. After driving a few hundred miles and having the computer adjust, the gains went back to normal.

Yeah they can say what they want, but if it's true then that means I should have obviously lost the hp I gained from installing the PPE headers and Borla Catback exhaust which have been on for over a month and over 1k miles.

The real test is that this intake and filter makes power.

Might want to read through this thread before proclaiming victory:

I am extremely skeptical of dyno results. Caymandive has both dynos and runs at the drag strip to back up the dynos. Hard to beat this kind of data.

Good thread, but havent been able to go through it all yet, it sounds like the first testing was done on a stock motor. On my testing, I added a filter to the stock intake first which made power, and the joez next which bumped it up even more. Maybe the intake works better with supporting mods such as the header and true dual exhaust as I have on my car now.

Another isf dynod 444whp here with the same mods as I except I had cats, so I dynod roughly 15hp less which seems consistent. He also had less than half the miles I had which is around 30k.

Thanks for actually providing dyno results.

A high flowing filter is nice, but I'll sacrifice 3hp for one that actually filters well.

Not sure what you mean by that, but it was more like 5whp+/5+torque. The filter added more power than the intake did.
