Hi all,
just bought a 2nd hand IS(very stock condition) and wana find out the not so hard core mod/replacement parts for performance enhancement I can do to this baby. Prefer to do it progressively but have little idea where to start.

Any recommended air filter intake system I can use to replace the stock one?
:D
Thanks!

kn panel filter 33-2059
cold air tube from plastic intake snorkel/resonator & zip-tie to front sway bar underneath
that's a start...

Thanks mate! Understand that you also did a modification to your air intake system...can elaborate more on that? Your resonator box still intact? :)

I've also blocked off the 2 holes in the resonator box with tape
Others have removed their resonator boxes but I've left mine in place
Definitely produces more induction roar
Check out some of the other threads & see photos of other car's intakes
Apart from the K&N & the cold air feed that'll be it for me until I get the Suzukisport intake possibly next year

Cool! U referring to the carbon intake duct as in http://www.suzukisport.com/news/041006s ... index.html ?

That would go with an open port air filter and no longer the drop-in filter I assumed? :wink:

Yes correct
The Suzukisport intake uses a pod-style filter as you can see from the photos. Just remove the black plastic stoppers from the top of the std Sport grille (don't know why they are there!) to improve airflow to the intake. Combine it with a sports muffler & it should be real nice

I can confirm its a nice bit of gear 8)

While it isn't cheap, I certainly believe it is a worthwhile mod; intake roar is cool, mid range torque certainly increased, and it looks pretty trick...

worthwhile saving for it:)

Wow! Looks neat with the carbon duct almost enclosing the entire filter.

How about the original factory fitted air intake duct? Has the resonator been removed?

And wat's the brand/model of the open pod filter that's shown?

I've heard about cooler, denser air improves fuel combustion and thus its performance....does that mean better fuel economy? Assuming my driving habit stays constant?
