before you panic, did you disconnect the battery before you started the install? As with all Intakes, you need to reset the ECU. So, diconnect the negative terminal of your battery, wait about 10-15 min. before reconnecting it. This will reset your ECU. Meanwhile, double check your hose connections. Make sure that they are secured.

sounds like you didn't connect all the vaccuum lines right.

look in the gallery under "Intakes" and there's pics for you to reference from.

if you reset your ecu, it must be the hoses...

First off, there's nothing wrong with the Intake that's sold on ebay. I have an AEM Intake, and I wish I would have saved the money and just bought the ebay version and did the "blue bomber" mod. A buddy of mine bought the ebay Intake for $60 and did the mod. No bogging even at cold starts. Anyway check all your hoses for any leaks and make sure that the one connector that was underneath your stock air box is plugged in. I intsalled my Intake and checked it over and over again for leaks and I still get CEL's

Didn't it come with instructions?

Did you check the Installs & read the "How to" on installing Injens CAI? It's pretty self explanatory.

That's what I like about the Blitz Intake, the only thing that I had to connect was the MAF, everything else gets zip tied away smile Japanese engineering, I've had it for a month & no CEL or problems what so ever thumbsup

When I installed my Injen SRI I just stared at all the hoses for like three hours before I slowly relized where they went. It's been almost six months and no problems yay me! grin

ok i will post pics i got to take them first but i went to the local auto zone to get a free computer reading and they said the problem was that the engine was running too lean, too muchair not enough fuel i guess thats what the butterfly valve inside the air box was doing but my friend told me that someone makes something for the celica to put more fuel in the car therefor taking the check engine light off i will post pics later today

It has nothing to do with the butterfly. The point of the Intake is to suck in more air. Your ECU is supposed to recognize that more air is coming in and adjust itself to allow for more fuel. I would definitely try to clean your MAF and reset your ECU again.

I noticed that there is only one hose in the pic that you posted. Is there only one hose?

Dude, you can't force people to give you feedback after they were patient with you, trying to help you after you bought a "no name" Intake. So how about a little respect & people will give you some feedback if you start a new post & post some pics. Not everyone reads every post smile

Try taking the breather filter off and capping it with a plastic cap. i looked at the routing of your hoses and it looks right, but double check with the correct hook up of the hoses which sit right behind the driver side of your headlights.

alright...try taking the small filter off and cap (close) that hole...i think that's the one you dont need to have air into ur engine.
