K&N needs your 2004 IS300 for Intake Performance Kit development. The current Typhoon will not run efficiently on 2004 model years so we are redesigning the kit. Car will be needed for 5 working days. A rental car can be made available during the interim. Interested candidates please e-mail me directly at [email protected]

Thank you

K&N is a little behind....PLP apparently is about to get 2005 models to develop products for.....

I moved my Area51 intake from my '01 to my '04 with no problmes...


Actually there was one small thing. In the '04 model Lexus added a few gears to behind the high beam bulb. If you don't know the Area51 intake touches the connector of the high beam.

The gears do this: When you adjust the low beam up and down the high beam is adjusted as well.. So when you turn one the gears turn the other..

Of course I took this off with two screws and my intake fit fine.

same car - 3 different version of the ecu?
that hasnt been confirmed yet if the 2004 ecu is any different in wiring from the 2002-2003......I would assume not, why would they change it again?
