It comes with screws and washers to attach it with the stock bolt locations (just like the oem one), but no rinky-dink plastic screws like stock. thumbsup

Yeah, it is a little smaller than stock, but I still think it's a huge improvement. And what I really like is the silver "TRD" emblem grin

Doesn't fit the contours of the stock cover; you have to use it as a replacement. Thanks for asking that, though, I forgot to mention it above.

I am thinking that maybe now that they droped the price to $180, the extra $80 is worth spending. But not at the previous prices.

Don't get me wrong, IPT has a very nice product (expensive, but nice). Like you said, though, they didn't change their price until after I got this one.

Flimsy? No. It is thin, but it's pretty solid. It doesn't bend or anything, if that's what you're asking.

Yeah you have to. It doesn't have the same contours as the TRD one so it can't stay in.

Looks awesome, plastic looks crappy and cheap, this is the sorta thing that should come stock on any car that you're spending this much money on.

Normally I don't like any engine covers, including stock ones. It makes the engine look like Playmobil. But this TRD engine cover is really nice. Got to have that grin

Looks pretty good but the icing on the cake would be to get rid of your fuel rail and put in the stafford fuel rail.

he's right Evan, the Stafford rail does look sweet compared to stock - nice and polished. I am thinking about getting it to go with my polished Intake and Hypermotive front strut bar. I think it will bring out the Carbon Fiber nicely thumbsup

I can't deny it looks much better than stock, but I'm not looking to modify any performance components as long as I'm under warranty happywink

However, I'd like to see your engine bay once you get all that Carbon Fiber installed thumbsup

Horrible puke



Losing the plastic over the Intake manifold and having the valve cover powdercoated or chromed would make it look nice. Adding the Injen spark plug cover thing and some red powdercoat would make it look awesome, and a lot, lot different than the normal VVTL-i plastic cover.

looks very good...big improvement over stock. agreed with earlier posts, not as good as IPT, but still, a big improvement. maybe sometime TRD will step up and make replacements for all the engine plastics, to compete more with IPT...that'd be nice

Thanks: To everyone that take time to run this site and NewCelica.org
Random: These cars cost a lot more then their sticker price. I feel the modding will never end.
