Best Intakes???

Just upgraded my 01 IS300 to an 08 ISF.

The simple mods that I have made so far:
Hardwired Escort 9500ix
Tinted Windows
Clear Bra

Next I am looking to install the Escort Zr4 Laser Shifter and an aftermarket Intake.

I wanted to know if the aftermarket intake makes a difference to the hp and mpg, if so, what is the best intake to get?

Also, please make and suggestions what other simple mods that I can make.

Thanks in advance

If you want a laser jammer that works well, forget the zr4's and get laser interceptor jammers. Check out guys of lidar's unbiased report/testing.....

wow..just read lidars report..seems like the zr4 sucks. But I got the escort 9500ix..but I guess the laser interceptor is the way to go?

I have also decided on the Injen Intake. I have searched the forums, seems like non of the aftermarket intakes really make a difference, pretty much just makes a louder growl. I have used an Injen in my Is300, read some decent reviews on it..so I guess I am going to go with that one. I was also debating the Takeda one..anyone has a strong preference?

I chose the Takeda as it retains the stock air box so you are still drawing in the coolest air.

No intake will really make a difference. I had the K&N Typhoon intake and it absolutely screams in the higher RPMs. It sounds awesome.

But there's no real gain otherwise and I actually just switched back to the stock setup. With a cat-back I found the intake to just be too damn loud lol. I will be selling mine if you had any interest.
