Shopper Award

The AEM 22-688C Performance Air Intake System is a free-flowing, mandrel-bent aluminum tube air induction system designed to replace the restrictive factory air filter and air intake tubing while retaining the factory air box on some Lexus IS 250, IS 350 and RC 350 models. The air intake system comes with a replacement AEM high-flow air filter and a free-flowing aluminum intake tube that easily connects to your vehicle's factory air box and engine throttle body to dramatically increase air flow into your engine. With more air flowing through the custom-tuned intake tube, you experience more horsepower and acceleration throughout the engine's RPM range. The air intake tube accomodates a breather hose and is finished with an attractive and durable gunmetal gray powder-coating that provides a clean, high-performance look under the hood. The AEM Dryflow air filter is made from an oil-free, synthetic filter media that can be used for up to 100,000 miles before servicing is needed (depending on driving conditions). This air intake is designed for easy installation and simply requires one screwdriver and a ratchet set to do the job. The air intake system comes with AEM's Lifetime Limited Warranty. Some AEM air intakes are not legal for sale or use in California and other states adopting California emission standards while others are 50 state legal. View the 22-688C vehicle applications to determine the legal status for each vehicle.

AEM's easy-to-install air intake system gives you more power and acceleration by replacing the restrictive factory air filter and air intake tubing while retaining the stock air box. The intake tube has a gunmetal gray powder-coat finish.

What Is an AEM Cold Air Intake System?

An AEM cold air intake system is specifically designed to increase the volume of cold air flowing into your engine as you drive. The thinking behind this is that cold air is much denser than warm air. Therefore, if there is more cold air in your engine, there is more air in general, which also means that there is more oxygen. A higher amount of oxygen present in a car engine increases the potency of combustion, which can increase the power and efficiency of your engine.

What Are the Benefits of an AEM Intake System?

An AEM intake kit maximizes the amount of power you can get from your engine. This increase in power will also help you conserve fuel and increase your fuel efficiency, saving you money at the gas station. In a sense, an AEM intake system helps your car and engine “breathe” more efficiently, allowing it to reach its full potential.

Why Should I Choose an AEM Intake Kit?

AEM is regarded as one of the best aftermarket intake systems on the market, combining quality materials, cutting-edge technology and reliable design to help drivers around the globe improve the power of their engine. All AEM cold air intake systems are engineered to increase your car’s torque and horsepower, and any AEM intake kit comes with a lifetime limited warranty.
