hey i was wondering if the AEM or InjenCold Air Intake have a way bigger power gain then a TRD drop in filter for a 2000 Celica gts.. does any one know the specs for the cold air Intakes and the TRD drop in filter??
CAI is the way to go. HP gains and the Intake roar! The GTS in lift with a CAI sounds pretty damn good. If you live in a really wet place with lots of puddles and standing water, you might consider a Short Ram Intake to eliminate hydrolock. SRI sounds good and more HP than a drop in filter, but not as much as a CAI.
Don't bother getting the TRD drop in filter, NO GAINS what so ever!!! I sold it after a week I bought it. A month later I bought my InjenCAI and all I could say is..WOW!!! Way better performance and sound!!! worth every penny!
i have a TRD drop in and am prettty happy with it.. it dont make it feel a shitload more powerful, but it seemed a tit pepperier. also made my engine sound a bit loader and meaner... nothing like a CAI, but if you dont want a CAI, then its pretty cool.
i have the TRD drop in filter and my stock Intake box is drilled to hell and i also have a custom funnel pipe that brings cold air from underneath the bumper right to the drilled holes, so basically i built my stock Intake up to a CAI.. i was debating on if i should jus ditch my custom Intake and jus get an aftermarket one..what do ya'll think?
I purchased the TRD filter a year ago but then realized too late that they are not even remotely comparable to a CAI... after installing my AEM Intake, I was pleased with my decision and promptly sold the filter -
