hello. im new here. have a question about Cold Air Intake Sys
hi. i have a 2000 GTS. Some guy on another celica forum is selling an Injen Cold Air Intake which has been used for about 600 miles or maybe less. the price he's asking is about 150. It looks like it doesnt have the warranty thou. Do you guys think i should go for it? Thnx.

True that, but if you feel better getting a new one, you can get one here at the celica store for around $50 or so more thumbsup

how about the filter? do you have to clean it or change it and how often?

you should clean it every 6-7K miles

you should never need to buy a new filter.

buy a new one Intake.. then at least you have peace of mind knowing how the Intake has been treated.. and if it will perform at peak standards. buying a used one.. its like buying a used car.. you never know.

and if you buy a new one.. you can always take it back to the dealer or manufacturer if there is a problem.

I would buy a new one. It's not too much more. Who knows. there could be some small tiny thing wrong with the Intake that he can't see.


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

For $40 more you can buy a brand new Blitz Intake from suprastore.com And if you're worried about hydrolock, then shortram is the way to go. I was driving through a ton of puddles yesterday & nothing happened to the engine. I only slowed down on the big puddles 'cuz my tires will just skid & loose traction. It's pretty fun grin

But yeah, if the tube isn't punctured & the filter is in great shape, then it's a really good deal
