Hi guys,

Was wondering what aftermarket intake I should buy from? any recommendations? trying to beef up the sound of my car, but trying to minimize the amount of change I do. Thank you

That's the one that I have on my car, and I love the sound. It is very easy to install.

how deep is it? wish you lived nearby so i could just hop in your car with you and listen to it -_-

It sounds really good when you get on it. If just driving normal then normal sound. I'll try to shoot a video on the way to work on Tuesday to show you and post it up.

I wouldn't swap the exhaust unless you can hear what it would sound like before hand on someone else's car. At idle, on take off, and most importantly when cruising to make sure it doesn't have a drone you can't stand. A V6 will sound like a V6 and there is no making it sound like a V8, ever. ;)


Loud is subjective and everyone would describe it differently. You have to decide what is loud.

so i got the pro versus the dry.... any big difference/worry?

The oiled CAI is much better at filtering out particles. As far as worries on the oiled is putting too much oil on and fouling the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor. I shot a video today of what the CAI sounds like and I just have to edit it down and post it.

OK, as promised I've uploaded a sound clip to YouTube that lets you hear what the Takeda CAI sounds like on a 2015 Lexus RC 350 with F-Sport option. The exhaust is stock. I've tried to include as many different driving conditions as possible. If you have any questions let me know.


At no time was the speed limit exceeded on surface streets or the freeway. The CAI makes the car sound like it is going faster than it really is.

Great!!! hahahha plan to install it this evening and I am going to have to swap it out to stock when I go back for maintenance. I am going to ask a mechanic at the dealer, during maintenance, to see if bolt on intake would void the warranty.

You won't have to swap it out for stock as it will not void the warranty. If they tell you it does they are violating the Federal Moss-Ferguson Act. The act prohibits dealers from telling you that you can't put in parts that are not OEM, and if you do it violates your warranty.

Now, if you add a cam or turbo/super-charger or install a Tune than Yes, it would violate the warranty.

Gear I did not use the inner plastic tubing that was provided... I was not given enough clamps and my intake/pipe is secure... what is the purpose of that rubber tube that goes inside the pipe?

Nevermind read the instruction book, that is for the GS350
Not a problem. When in doubt read the instructions, which we don't always do, and I'm guilty of it too. LOL
