Cold air intake
Can I replace my factory air filter with a
cold air intake that fits a 2008 Toyota
Camry 3.5L on my 2008 Lexus ES 350?
Would that do any damage to my engine?
If done correctly and maintained properly it won't, but you bought a Lexus for the quiet and luxury of the vehicle, why would you want to make it noisey with a cold air system?
Just to get the little extra HP. Would you do it?
I would look into a performance module, for more ponies, a cold air intake gain is marginal at best.
Most guys won't know unless they dyno test engines BUT a "cold" air kit with an OILED filtration (filter) reduces performance as the filter oil works its way upstream and onto the MAF! Yep! Now the air fuel air fuel ratio is altered... KEEP, in mind this is 2-3 HP MAX BUT HEY THEY LOOK COOL!
