this is a stupid question but what is "bogging"???
When you step on the gas and the car kinda just sits there for a second or more. Most noticeable when the car is cold. It also comes on in midrange around 5K on some cars. It's caused by the engine running too lean, which saps away power. If the engine goes any leaner, it causes a CEL because it's not safe to run that lean (raises engine temps to unsafe levels).
TPR solved the bogging and CEL problems by adding fins to MAFS section of the CAI
, resulting in 100% accurate airflow readings, so the engine will never run dangerously lean like with other Intakes
Does nobody rate K&N typhoon kits? I have difficulty finding anywhere in the UK that does TPR, and AEM and Injen are expensive to get over here but many places sell K&N kits..
I know someone on that "other" Celica site got it and had an instant lean CEL that wouldn't go away with K&N. It's basically just an AEM Intake
. The design is incredibly similar. As for finding a TPR Intake
in the UK, you won't.
TPR is a brand new company started a few months ago by Easy_C. He ships worldwide, but you can only buy the Intakes
in group buys right now, till his company has enough money to make Intakes
in advance. They're definitely the best Intakes
out there on every level. Solid stainless steel construction, adjustable mounting bracket, top notch K&N filter with built-in venturi system and the largest filtering area, and a cast MAFS section with MAFS fins (key to no problems) for 100% accurate construction (other brands hand weld or machine weld the MAFS mount to the pipe).
TPR has the mid range power of Injen
with the low end power of AEM
. Its the best of both worlds.
Anyone know where I can get one?
Only place to get it is from Easy_C. Give him a PM with what color you want (powdercoated red, blue, silver/aluminum, or polished) and your address. They'll be on sale again most likely by the end of the month.
