Invidia Mid-Pipe

111 posts in this topic

Hello there,

I have a 2006 prestige manual IS250, been reading up on all the exhaust options etc....

Just like to know what the Invida mid pipe options gives / does when matched to the stock exhaust?

Is it louder? Do you get any performance gains

Thanks

Yep!! I do. Have a go at you tube also your friend. alot of clips with all different sounds.

Invidia ONLY is a bit raspier as it has a resonator delete compared to stock. Its a little bit sportier in tone.

the first part of the video is a stock exhaust, just the invidia midpipe, so that will give you an idea on what it sounds like compared to your car now

Hi I'm interested in invidia midpipe too.

I have a Fujitsubo axleback exhaust already.

Suprised how loud the invidia by itself is, was anyone else?

Would adding the invidia make much more noise than now that I have the Fujitsubo?

For the guys that have got the Invidia system, do you have a preffered supplier that you have used that we could go through? Trawling around I generally get all the ebay stores from the states

If you guys want to band together I can try the ebay retailers see if they'll do a discount

2 years ago i think i paid $350 shipped and $70 installation prices have definately gone up due to popular demand im guessing.

Does it sound different on a 350 to 250?

Sounds like dumb question. But genuinely curious.

Thinking about it scientifically it maybe a bit more agressive due to a larger engine expelling more gasses.

But to be honest i dont know. Maybe the emmisions are governed and 250 and 350 emmisions are the same.

After reading "coolmeow"'s post on Fujitsubo Legalis R Catback, I'm now thinking to get this exhaust.

http://au.lexusowner...showtopic=10452

Would Fujitsubo Legalis R bolts right onto Invidia Mid-Pipe?

I have fujitsubo exhaust.

it's a bolt on replacement for stock, so naturally it would fit fine with invidia since that is also a bolt on replacement.

I will say though that the fujitsubo feels not as loud as i wanted it.

I was on the quiet vibe after reading coolmeows post so I got it.

Might sell it..

I was sort of lookin for the growl of a C63 AMG..

Should I look at the F-Sport exhaust or something else??

Oh I see.. so Legalis R is too quiet.

I'm after exactly the same growl exhaust note as you are. Well I guess the IS250 only has a small V6, it'll never sound like a V8 bark.

Heard F-Sport is loud, what about just go invidia all the way, mid-pipe & exhaust.

For a c63 type sound (out of a v6) i think the closest is ividia + greddy axle back. I had this and wish i never got rid of it.

The invidia + F-sport is pretty loud.

I'd think twice before committing to this in a 250. Terrrry had this in his, and turned heads. But would get punched at the line by too many cars.

Basically too much sound without enough power to back it up.

My Neighbour has an IS350 F Sport with the JoeZ exhaust done by Chatswood Lexus, it is quite loud...
