Cold Air Intake

I have a new AEM Cold Air Intake for my celica GTS
When i tried to let the profesional shop install it for me, it cant fit, so they need to cut something off of my car to make it fit.

Did you guy cut anything off in order for it to fit?
AEM CAI was make for my car, but for some reason it would not fit.

^ Yeah, but most people are either too lazy or don't feel comfortable enough to install it themselves. The AEM will fit, you just have to cut a hole in the inner fender for the filter to slide through.

yeah, the shop may not have wanted to do it without your consent, or maybe they didn't want the liability.
