Hi,

I'm a bit confused...Still with the vids I have difficulty evaluating if a RAM (Takeda) or a CAI is worth it for getting more sound. Also, removing the stock intake removes the added sound "amplificator" added by lexus which, I guess, would reduce the overall sound of the intake. I have a 2015 with a stock exhaust. Thanks

The Takeda is the CAI. My car didn't come with the sound enhancer you describe, but putting in the Takeda CAI will generate much more sound than the Lexus sound amplification ever can. You heard my video, and that is with the stock exhaust.

That`s the mechanical sound "generator" I'm taking about: youtu.be/5kz9DWz2BuU. I think i'ts standard on all f-sport models. Not the ASC (speaker sound) which is available on 2016 and up. Thanks!

The sound generator was an option on the 2015, and mine didn't come with it, and it's a factory F-Sport. It was part of an option package, but mine didn't the option package that included it. The CAI will still produce more throttle noise than the mechanical sound generator ever could and will give you better throttle response.

I recently installed a takeda catback system on my rc350. Sounds amazing, very deep and she screams when you get on it. The installation takes a little less than an hour, bolt size 18. Whoever’s looking for a deep sound on their rc I’d definitely recommend.
