How does the intake sound on the highway? I ussually cruise about 75-80. Does it increase the engine noise in the car? I know it sounds great and loud under power, but when driving civilized how does it sound?
Any other comments you have-let me know.

After a month of driving, it is just great!

When driving "civilized", it sounds just like stock - on stealth mode. YOU will NOT hear a thing from the intake or under the hood.

But when you floor it and drive aggressively, it has a very deep tone - almost like a carburetor. This is why I love the SRT intake - it's so subtle - - just like our IS300s.

The power esp. on the freeway is amazing - just from a simple bolt-on product can make a car like this "breathe" better.

I drove my baby at 120mph and it was still quiet.

It's great and I'm happy...SWIFT just completed the final production units and they will be posting new pics by Monday. They have an awesome looking custom-made SRT Air-Filter! Stay tuned.

More later...

I helped install the filter with Muhammad - t'was very easy, just a few screws, tighten here and there, take out the stock box, tighten, start her up and hear the "music".

However, I didnt touch the piggyback ECU - I let Muhammad and his tech guys do that - I'm clueless about wiring stuff.

Am glad you asked...

So far it saves me .08 of a mile - of both agressive and conservative driving (sometimes more agressive).

I'll post some calculations later...I'm currently driving the car without being assertive to get another accurate reading.

The piggyback ECU actually makes the car run leaner.
