I have received numerous requests for a DIY on my snorkel mod that I detailed in the intelligent modification series from the IS community. In effect, it adds additional "ram air" on the highway. Using a sealed airbox is ideal in any car that will be going through gears frequently street car, road racing car. The reason is that even if it doesn't produce the highest hp, which sometimes it does, is that transient response is better with an airbox than with an open element air filter.
When the throttle closes between shifts for example, the air that was quickly rushing in hits a wall and is forced back down the intake system. In a sealed system, the air actually bounces back and helps ram more air in when the throttle is re-opened. In a open air filter system, the air is lost to the atmosphere and thus power just after a shift is harmed. There are other reasons, but the best "proof" of this is that even the hardcore no-creature comfort exotic cars like the Ferrari Enzo DO NOT use open element air filters, but still - air boxes.
The factory air box generates more and more air pressure as the car speeds up, by replacing the airbox with a "open element" conic filter, you lose that benefit completely. Just pointing the snorkel at it just supplies it with the outside air, not the pressure. As a bonus, it's almost impossible to detect, it adds very little if any noise AND you get to use power tools As a note, the only reason I didn't use a bigger pipe for the snorkel is there's no room.
There's no room to install a snorkel anywhere else under, beside, etc due to the way the engine bay is built. If you used a terrible filtering, horribly flowing HKS you could fit a better snorkel, but the tradeoffs would be too high. Use a factory air filter for BEST results, period. Remove air box by removing 10mm bolts and losening hose clamp with screw driver. The JoeZ -does- reduce restriction, so I kept mine but this snorkel mod does more in my testing. Use a screw driver to loosen the clamps on the intake, carefully lift the air box and disconnect the solenoid and vacuum hoses on the driver side of the airbox on the bottom.
I believe the shopvac hose I used was 2" throughout and 2. I chose to put the big end going into the box. Route it through the hole as shown beside the passenger side headlight. It will be "crimped" a bit. While that's not ideal, my testing still shows that the net result is a good one.
I ran mine down and zip tied it to the lower grille area.
I used a black zip tie so it'd blend in. Bonus: If you happen to have a velocity stack laying around or something like that, you might want to attach one here. You can make your own "flared" entry by forcing a piece of straight plastic pipe or something over a bowl or flower pot.I'm relatively new to the forum, been doing a bit of reading about intake pulse tuning and the like, and I was looking at the stock IS intake scoop.
The front of it appears to split into two, one path favouring the intake resonator tee'd onto the side of the intake. I was wondering if anyone had taken the time to remove the split in the intake, and block off the two resonator boxes joining onto the intake - I know on a particular model of subaru that had a resonator in the front guard by removing the resonator and changing the intake to a straight piece of pipe the time was reduced from 6.
You can read about it in '21st Century Performance' by Julian Edgar. This isn't the case on the is The split intake is more for structural rigidity if the divider wasnt there, the compressive strength would be compromised.
The part that Mikecox is talking about I think is the air intake for the standard airbox. The bit that extends to the front grille. Just on that point that you mention about the standard intake manifold Elliot, I also heard a rumour Dave was looking at that problem.
Well It really isn't a problem unless your are running high boost on a turbo'd IS. I wouldn't be sure it would hold out to well under high boost as it is plastic. And it is made from very hard but brittle plastic so could be easily cracked. I wouldn't have any idea about what kind of pressure would be needed to damage it but I also wouldn't be convinced that the IS intake manifold is the most flow friendly manifold around.
I have had mine off and it looked fairly detailed and complicated etc. I would guess that a much simpler custom designed manifold would be better for turbo'd engines and of course it would need to be steel or alloy etc for high boost. You can post now and register later.

The only thing keeping it in the hands of enthusiasts in the previous generation was the availability of a 6 speed manual gear box. With the 3rd generation only having the option of an automatic there seemed to be almost no reason for enthusiasts to purchase the IS However, Lexus has now joined the other luxury brands in utilizing small displacement forced induction motors for entry level models.
Enter the new ISt. While on paper the new 2. We have seen that the BMW i motor can produce over whp around HP with some tuning and basic bolt-ons. If you can imagine that bigger gains are possible this could mean that the ISt could easily out power the IS and still end up costing about the same, or maybe even less with cheaper insurance costs.

However the chassis is superb and is just crying out for a few simple mods. The days of fiddling around in the engine bay with a spanner to make the car go faster are numbered. This actually means you get better power, a cleaner burn and more reliable engine but it does not mean the end of tuning.
As a rule the turbo engines are stronger than the NASP equivalents and are able to handle substantial power gains. The key thing in a turbo engine is the flow rate that can be generated and this depends largely on the internal profiles of the impellers inside the turbo.
