Probably K&N. Nearly all high flow filters are comparable. There's really no difference between them.

Here is a link to a dyno of a TRD drop in filter. Anyway - I bought one when I picked my car up new.. so I installed it and didn't notice anything -- but I cleaned it quite often because of the debris build up ! That is about all they are good for.

'01 GT-S 6 spd. with TRD elegante kit & much much more...

the notion that a Short Ram is useless is ridiculous. the RMM SRI (which is shaped like every other short) makes 9whp up top...it's just that with heat soak you bog a bit down low in the rpms...once you get going that's when it does it's thing. i have numerous dynos...let me know if you want a sample...

if you don't want to deal with an aftermarket CAI/sr install, then a TRD Air Filter is a wise choice...

well...then again...in order to not have an economy car you'd have to get a ferrari...which isn't something that you would see with a bodykit...so the celica is probally a good car to do it too... (besides the skyline rolleyes)

How about the new Fram Air Hog? High flow & washable. Should the deciding factor among all of those be cost?
