OMG AEM intake issue again...

ok...driving to school at 8 in the morning and now the box around the D is ghostin at every stop sign and lite. couldn't concentrate in english...so i call the shop and tell them to make me an appoitment to get it removed and put my stock one in with a full refund. around 2 i get a message to call them back. he tells me he did research with AEM and they've come out with a newly remodeled Intake for my celica. hmmmmmmmmm. sounds fishy eh? so i ask wat are the new mods? he says more piping so it won't hit any sensors and maybe a bracket...obviously this guy don't know what he's talking about. i say ok i'll try it but i ain't giving you a penny. he says ok come on in on friday morning and we'll install the new one for you. im all ok... so you guys...? is this guy BSing me or did AEM really fix their problems? grrrrr

you happy boy?
