I am thinking of adding an intake just to make it sound more aggresive. Any recommendations on what I should put on? As well if anyone knows a place that does it in Ottawa. Thanks!

if money was no object for the intake, SRT + ECU by far. gives you meaner sound and actually improves quite a bit. If you are like me, K&N

How much does the SRT+ecu go for in ontario?

Debating if I should pick that up or just wait till the GTTE comes in.

If you want a big sound/performance increase... then SRT is the way to go. But it is $$$!!!

I know you can't really use youtube as a precise comparison... but here's a video clip of the SRT.
YouTube - SRT Lexus IS300 Intake WOT 45-90mph
YouTube - SRT High Flow Intake Lexus IS300
YouTube - IS300 Borla Exhaust SRT Intake

Any open element (cone) filter will probably give you a louder/meaner engine note. K&N FIPK is also popular.

Joe Z is another popular intake... and it does give your engine a meaner sound... but it's nowhere near as noticeable as SRT.

is it really that good?

Hmm. I might buy it.

On the other hand, I think I gotta slow down on the mods, Ive done way too much imo in the past 5 months.

LoL chunks I feel you man.

For me, I don't even want to talk about how much I've spent in mods. It's actually pretty shocking once I add it all up. I never knew it was THAT much. I could paid off my car by now lol...

with that said, I'm looking to dump a good bit on coin on it this year as well. Well I've already started with that... =(

I say enjoy it while you can, you never know when you'll have to start asking your significant other if you can spend $10 on a car wash :)

Just keep that CC under control and only buy when you have enough to cover the costs at the time of purchase not next month.
