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.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 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.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!
It's really important to minimize the amount of change, my friend specifically told me.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
Haha, I'm looking forward to what you say.Can't wait to buy/install this on my RC. I have an axleback exhaust and it just makes the car SO much more fun to drive now. Before that, I didn't enjoy driving it a whole lot bc it was so quiet. I'm hoping with the addition of the Takeda CAI and pedal commander, this will completely transform my driving experience. No, I am not talking about performance/power. Just fun driving dynamics.
My God, that's what happened.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.
