Have you thought about getting a snorkel instead?

will this fit a 2006 LX 470? Are all the PVC lines the same?
Yes. I install this on a 06' LX470. ~13 months and counting

What about the flexibility? I see no flex in this intake.
The intake tube itself is ridged. However the two couplers have enough flex for the application. I have noticed no issues and inspect it regularly.

By the photo, it looks like a coupler at the Throttle body. I'm sorta interested in this, but a quick search shows unavailable.

I called Airaid and ordered the individual parts directly from them. Took about a month to get the parts, but it was a fairly easy process.

Why change what has worked very well, for billions of miles "Collectively speaking". Which is the factory design! The exception being a snorkeler.

Personally, I do not like seeing any of these after-market cool air system on the 100 series 4.7L. For that matter, even the filters that claim additional HP gain. Which allow more air into intake manifold, at shake of filtration. Which is not good for health of cylinder walls and rings. OEM filter is best deal IMHO.

I've one in shop today. Fuel trims

will not come inline. Why? WTFK, as it's gone down this rabbit hole!

Another thing I see in some with some open air filter design. The filters get water-logged, starving intake of air in the rain.

Psshhhttt, you posted the scariest one you could find on your phone. The airaid setup is nice if you use it just for the tube, and can retain stock filter. In my case the tabs on my stock intake tube were busted and this was avail even on Amazon at the time.

Actually, I just went in shop and took those pictures a few minutes ago. I've seen worst!

Search mud, some have come-up with cheap creative fixes. For the OEM air boxes & pipe with busted clips/tabs/nipples.

But why, what do you expect to accomplish? The 2UZ pulls air from way back inside the fender, it's not like it's pulling hot engine bay air in. You will have no note worthy performance gains and you will most likely take a really good air filtration system and make it worse.

If you want less dust ingestion then a snorkel make sense but even that seems like a waste. I drive in constant dust clouds all summer long up here and I have no issues with stock filter setup.

The idea of cool air intake itself is incorrect as the engine is warmer than outside.

I never settle for anything other than OEM parts (or do it twice). Those oil filled filters will clog all pores within a matter of days if you drive on a dirt roads, then the engine receives less air. Oil can contaminate the MAF sensor too.
