Intake project...

Ok, i don't think anyone here has the k&n shortram on a gts. I'm gonan give this Intake a shot. But i want a heatshield similar to RMM. A few questions.. Is the RMM the best design for heatshield or could it be better. Would aluminum be best material as i might be making a heatshield? Would the color of the Intake affect heat soak?? might sound dumb but would the paint on a colored Intake insulate more than a polished?

Go ahead try it...

The heat shield design is fine...i really don't think it does much. And the paint doesn't do anything for insulation

K&N makes a great Short Ram system for the Celica. I was going to buy that system, but then I fell for the Injen, because I got a better deal. I actually want to buy the K&N Typhoon Filter and put it on my Injen aluminum tubing. Alot of different manufactures use K&N's filter design, but put there name on it like Injen and AEM. I like the Typhoon filter, because the head of the filter breaths too, not just the sides like Injen, which means more air flow. If you can get a good deal get the K&N. thumbsup

yeah the rmm heat shield has a good design and should wokr with most SRI that have the same curve as RMM's, like the k&n, the heat shield is only like 20 bucks and its a lot easier than making one. As for gains, the reasoning behind the heatshield sounds good, but by puting one in dont expect a huge difference, but it makes ur SRI suck colder air
