INGEN > AEM ?

OK so as we all know there are huge debates between AEM and INGEN. Since its a fact that ingen is better at high rmp and AEM is better at low rpm and we all know celicas lack power in low rpm so does it make since to go with AEM. But with my car when i race i notice once i get my car out of first i stay at high rpm all the time. So would it be better to go with a ingen since its better at high rpm. During racing our cars spend all there time in high rpm except at the start line.

I was told to go with TPR, but they are not 100% ready so maybe wait or see what others say. grin

TPR > all, but you are going to have to wait. Injen vs. AEM is 6 one, 1/2 dozen the other really.

I'll wait if it's the best. Most are telling me it has the best gains on the low and high end and no ECU problems or anything that could make the car run weird like some others do. And good things always come in time, it takes time to build a masterpiece. happywink

No offense to TPR, but I will never trade in my Inlen. I can swap different filters and never have bogging or CEL problems and even pass a strict emission test on both accounts. I'll keep my Injen.
Always growls down low and all hell breaks lose at 6,000 RPM's.
Sucks, blows, and pulls (no sexual refferences intended).
I'm more than happy with it. Maybe the only one.

I'd go with TPR if I could afford it, they were ready, and I could see the numbers of the finished product...

Otherwise, I'm quite happy with my AEM CAI. Had a CEL problem at first, but it was because the install is slightly different for my 2004... Once I fixed that, it hasn't been back in more than 6 months.

Soo... I guess it all comes down to what you want tongue
