UPDATED Dyno results: switched to K&N typhoon intake kit + Joe Z PTS ExhaustDyno'd 379.1whp 353 ft lbs tq on this same Dyno.
JoeZ intake pipe and PTS ExhaustDyno results: Lowest reading was 361rwhp 339 ft lbs of tq and highest of the day was 367rwhp and 343 ft lbs tq with Joe Z intake and Exhaust on DynoDynamics.
Baseline stock run I did was 356rwhp and 333 ft lbs of tq stock. I was kind of dissapointed with the gains of 11hp and 10 lbs tq and I think I would of pulled better if the car was more cooled down as I drove straight to the Dynoshop in rush hr with no engine cool down time and straight on the Dyno. Also I just installed the intake yesterday with only 80 miles driven with it.

2014 Lexus IS F Sedan
2014 Lexus IS F sedan: Say bye-bye to the brutally quick IS F
The good: The 2014 Lexus IS F's V-8 is a total hoot and pairs nicely with
the eight-speed, close ratio automatic transmission. The dated tech holds
up surprisingly well to modern standards.
The bad: Despite its advanced transmission, the engine is pretty old tech.
Fuel economy will dip into the single digits, if you're not careful.
The bottom line: The terrifically impractical 2014 Lexus IS F is the most
un-Lexus model in the lineup, but it's an absolute thriller.
Largely unchanged since its 2008 debut, the IS F is sort of the black sheep
of Lexus' lineup. With its big, inefficient V-8 and boisterous character,
it's the most un-Lexus model the automaker builds. So, I was equal parts
surprised and pleased to see that the automaker was still producing it this
late into the generation transition.
You see, the IS F sedan and the IS C convertible are the last of the
second-generation IS models, the sedans that make up the bulk of sales have
already moved on to the third-generation's awkwardly styled sheet metal.
But this will be the last year that Lexus builds this beastly brute. So, as
the 2014 IS F sedan left the Car Tech garage this week, I was bidding
farewell to the Mighty F in more ways than one.
2015 Lexus NX First Drive!
Ron Doron gets behind the wheel of the 2015 Lexus NX. The NX is a luxury
compact crossover and competes with vehicles like Audi Q5 and BMW X3. The
design is aggressive and the features are impressive. Also, this is the
first ever turbo from Lexus for the
2015 Lexus RC F First Drive Video Review w/ Chief Engineer Interview
Lexus as a brand is getting serious about performance. The all-new 2015
Lexus RC F was designed from the ground up as a purpose built two door four
passenger sports car powered by a 467 HP 5.0 Liter V8 sending power
straight to the rear wheels through an 8 speed sport direct shift
transmission to a Torsen limited slip out back. Aside from the all new bold
body lines of the 2015 Lexus RC the interior is equally up to super car
capabilities. Heavily inspired by the LFA the inside of the 2015 RC is all
business, from the laid back sport buckets to the signature F steering
wheel and aluminum pedals the Lexus RC is a machine on a mission.
Lexus is so serious about driving passion into the brand through
performance that the RC will not only be available as a body in white GT3
race car for customers to take racing, but the RC is the official car being
campaigned on behalf of Lexus/Toyota in Japan's Super GT series. Look out
Audi RS4, BMW M4 and Mercedes Benz C63 AMG owners because the 2015 Lexus RC
F is a force to be reckoned with.
