Correct me if I'm wrong here Blue, but the TPR Intake
has MAFS sensor fins in the piping that creates a more normal air flow and doesn't cause any bogging which are known to happen in most Intakes
, especially cheap ebay ones. TPR also has fairly good gains on a dyno. It also costs a little less ($180 plus shipping) than most CAIs. The only disadvantage to this is the difficulty in attaining one at the moment. EasyC (TPR owner) is having trouble with the shop that makes them, and the current orders have taken months to receive the Intakes
. This problem should be solved sometime in the near future, but we'll see how thing goes after the first batch is sent out. Aside from an Intake
, another investment to look at would be exhaust. These are more pricey ($400ish-$600ish), but provide better gains than the Intake
. I would have to recommend the TRD
sport muffler and the TPR exhaust. TPR has higher dyno gains, but again the same issue with the Intakes
also applies to the exhausts.
Beside motor and exhaust mods, weight reduction would be the next best performance mod that wouldn't be too hard (remove back seats, remove spare tire and accessories, other unessential things in the car).
