Sorry, I guess peeps aren't really understanding me... I've already purchased the full IPT kit, it's arriving in a few days, and I'm thinking of swapping their engine cover with the TRD one. Wanted opinions thumbsup

well if you already got that ipt, then it cant be helped. keep the ipt, im pretty sure that it is very good quality. just get a TRD decal and stick it on there. it will be the same.

thinking that too because I've been going mostly TRD in part upgrades. I guess I'll just get a sweet TRD decal this time though since this TRD cover is apparently not up to the quality of the IPT piece...

Anyone else have info on the TRD engine cover?

get IPT,

the TRD looks nice, but it attaches with some velcro to the stock cover (from what I've heard)

I would say stay with the IPT. I don't like to advertise on my car, but a lot of people like the look of the logo.


Knowing the path and choosing the path are two different things.

from looking at the pic, it seems to only cover the top half of the cover.

The TRD cover is on back order. I ordered one 2 weeks ago and had to call to find out where the hell it was. It will be a month or so before it's available again.

ok, from the responses to the TRD, I'll just stay with the IPT product and stick a decal on it

I'll take pics when the kit gets here - either tomorrow or Monday wave

Yeah, I've already ordered the TRD myself. I mean if you have the money, IPT is nicer, but it's also about twice the price. idunno

Since TRD Came out with the Half Piece that velcros and caps over the plastic piece

with there 1x1 crooked weave wet-laminate piece

I have got a lot of PM's for a sale on the GT cover since people want that than the TRD

We have decided to sell Just the GT cover at over half off

180.00 Shipped

http://store.yahoo.com/iptmotorsports/01-02-01-01.html

You can also get the 4 piece Kit for gt for 345.00 shipped
(GT cover,ECU,Fuse box, Small relay)

http://store.yahoo.com/iptmotorsports/toyota.html

(Scroll to the bottom)

Why not spend 70.00 more for a real thing and not one that caps over and velcros to the original plastic

Remember IPT carbon parts are the real thing

Vacum packed and autoclaved

TrueMold carbon fiber
