the ones who havent bought TPR...no but for real, i had the AEM and i went back to stock because of the CEL and irratic idle. The car almost stalled sometimes at stops. frown But i have a CAI again now (not AEM btw) with no problems smile.

Why what problems are you having?

TPR Intake! - Injens high end with AEM's low end and NO BOGGING!
TPR EXHAUST! - Exhaust made 10.5 whp peak and 32 whp at 6300 on my car!!!

I have a stock airbox, and have some of the bogging problems.

However, I removed the butterfly vavle, and the radiator bonnet, so I essentially have a ram air Intake at high speeds, because air goes from the hole in the bumper directly into the engine.

You should hear it roar at 130-140mph eek

LOL, I hear ya on that, I love a good late night high speed solo run. grin

When you say radiator bonnet do you mean that goofy piece of engine cover plastic they put right in front of the stock air box opening?

I removed that, and cut holes in the crash foam to open the entire front grill opening, really helped with the RAM air effect and over all engine cooling thumbsup
