TSRM vs. TRD exhaust/ AEM vs. Injen CAI

I am thinking of getting TSRM exhaust from cycocelica, but i heard that they have a reputation of getting overheated and melting the paint off the bumper? Is this true?
TSRM compared to TRD exhaust..which is best?
AEM vs. Injen CAI..which is best?
I have an auto GT..keep that in mind.
All opinions are appreciated!
Sorry about all my posts.. I'll make up my mind soon!!

For auto - AEM CAI for sure.
Exhaust depends on how loud you want your car to be. In my opinion TSRM makes our cars sound perfect. Not too loud, not too quiet. TRD sounds just a bit deeper and louder then stock.

Does TSRM overheat and melt the paint on the bumper though?

Nope, although with your TRD bumper it might not fit perfectly, it will not melt the paint or bumper.
