time will tell, though I tend to agree. You gotta wonder where all the parts are for the other cars on their website. It seems to be a company that's alive and well on celica forums, and that's it. The fact that it lives no where else makes me have a hard time with it. Granted every company has to start somewhere, untill the website at least has PICTURES of their products, I will be skeptical.

the reason you only find TPR on the celica sites is cause this is where he's starting out. it's not like AEM or Injen thats been around for ever. It's someone who owns a celica and wanted to help our after market grow. so he started up his company in hopes of makin us some great mods.

if nothing else you gotta give him props for going out and doing something instead of just bitchin about why we dont have stuff.

I definately do give him props for starting up the company. I think it's a great idea. But I think the problem is that in business problems in production are prone to occur. So instead of buying into all the hype just focus on getting some shit out there and done, know what I mean. Otherwise you have people that don't have their products and it just ends up looking much worse than I'm sure the intentions are.

Spoke to Easy_C a couple of times on AIM and he seems a really nice guy, just unfortunate that he seems to be having a rough time getting the cash flow / production times sorted out with the shop. Anyway that's enough butt kissing from me. MAKE WIT THE Intakes MAN!! rofl

I started my own business too and I know its rough. But the only way to do it right is to wait and just hold the hype in until you can ship, cause right now I'd consider it a scam if I had someguy with my money and just promisiing to ship a product that has no pictures in a unknown amount of time, that doesn't look too good. I would have waited till I had 300 Intakes in my basement after they shipped them from my shop, and then put up the site, cause I'm sure people are not going to be waiting patiently much longer

...yeah i feel like the most of u...i think all we need r updates...and pics..pics would b nice. instead-a just keeping us n da dark and and writting here and there...words r coo, but like most of us here we dnt knw the top secret stuff that TPR is up too and if the final design of the Intake is done, y dnt doesn't TPR post a pic of that bad boy to atleast show their potential cust. what they r going to get (i.e. completed exhaust, prehaps on the car and the Intake, doesn't even have to be installed, just show the final product)...naw-mean!?!?!?!?...i feel easy_c on having shop probs. but he has to have at least one finished product lying round to show...c-mon..on the other stuff, yeah we could wait, its tuff to research and finalize and perfect the product that give the proper gains...but to establish the good cust. base keep us BETTER posted on the stuff ur selling...pics dnt cost that much confused...still support you doe brother thumbsup

His shop is here in california and he's in massachuesets (sp?) and when his shop decides NOT to provide a picture of the products its outa his control.

yes, there were prototypes made. He sent those to his shop as is customary with this kinda thing.

Everything is moving along as quickly as can be. I can't stress that enough. I can't say whats really going on yet but I can tell you that when the time comes everything about the whole situation will become public knowledge.

I'm in the same boat as most of you and I agree it sux major. But have a lil more patience. thumbsup

Alright everyone. Time for the horse to speak smile. Basically what happened was my shop is "holding" all my products hostage until they receive more money from me. This is a direct infringement of our original agreement. So I sent them an ultimatim demanding action be done by Wednesday of next week or legal action will follow.

I have a couple of new REPUTABLE shops in line. So production will catch back up quickly.

I can't release any in depth information due to legal reasons and my lawyers advice RIGHT NOW. But things will be sorted. I'm not a scam, I have a business license, I'm registered with the state and federal government. Hell i have about 20 satisfied customers already from back when I had control over production. I'm open to any questions and will answer them as best as I legally can right now smile

Dude...sue the shop for voiding the signed agreement. Forget ultimatum, bring them to court and demand your products to be sent to you, the original blueprints, and additional expenses that cost you during the process.

Easy-C I want to appologize for being so critical of TPR. However, like I said before, because of all they hype and the troubles you've been having with the shop tt comes across as shady, though I'm sure that's not your intention. If it wasn't for people (most of whom don't know what they're talking about) spouting TPR this and TPR that and starting rumors I wouldn't be so critical. Keep trying to get everything straightened out, good luck.
