tpr has come out with a Intake and a exhaust. the Intake i and exhaust are carb legal but dont have a sticker, so cali pplz cant have them, right now TPR is behind on there production do to there shops. SEMA has keeped the shop busy so they havent produce the exhaust or wat ever (thats wat we hope is the reason y no one got there exhaust yet) hopefully we will have a word tomorow or tuesday sence SEMA will finish on the 8th so stick around thumbsup

Legality is: don't have CARB stickers, so inspection is idunnoif you're going for emissions. Other than that, they're fine.

Somebody needs to get ahold of some of these for the West Coast. I WANT ONE!!! Come one, Chris, please hurry!

CARB is a California thing...
CARB / C.A.R.B. / "California Air Resources Board"

http://www.arb.ca.gov/

So if you are not in California, CARB is meaningless to you...

Are you mixing up the terms "C.A.R.B." and "50 STATE LEGAL" (as far as Decibel/Noise is concerned) ???

Hello everyone.

As Isaac said, CARB is only for california. But yes the parts do pass emissions smile

We currently have an Intake and exhaust, however my shop is lagging a lil behind and should be caught up soon as SEMA is now over.

In the works we have a race header/mid pipe combo.

With all three bolt ons we are aiming for 185-190whp with no ecu tuning.

There are some other projects we have goin, but im not at liberty to say so you will just have to wait wink.

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!!!

This is the link to their web store; they are currently not taking orders.

From what I have been reading about the TPR Intake and exhaust it will be worth the wait:

The only way you can order TPR parts is through Easy_C. He's the owner of TPR, and the only seller of their parts.

Yes Isaac, yes I am! rofl

Without CARB sticker you can't pass emissions inspection in California. This is true, yes?

Noise is ok. Its not annoyingly loud, from what I heard in sound clips.

Caught by the bullshit police again! tongue

Keep in mind, the pics of the TPR CAI Clos posted are the Gen 1. The Gen 1.5 and 2 will have much better fitment due to improved design.

You'll pass emissions just fine, but not visual inspection.

TPR Exhaust clips, done with a professional sound recorder:
