AEM CAI - i want 1 but cant find em
hey people...
im lookin for an AEM CAI system for my 00 model sx (Australias base model celica but has the 2zz engine). I cant find a distributor anywhere and down under the celica isnt very popular to modify so people dun wanna even bother stocking aftermarket parts for it. Im hearing good things bout the AEM, producing more hp than any other system?? is this tru?. cool
1) Does any1 know where i can source 1 (if you are from australia) or
2) How would i go about importing one from celicastore and wat would the shipping cost?

Plz help me out as my current system sucks (u may hav read my post about bogging and flat spots) and just wanna hear lift scream its lungs out again thumbsup

GTIME, the AEM is not the best. is generates more power down low, Injen makes it up high, but both have issues with bogging and causing CELs because the MAFS cannot properly read the airflow in the larger tube. MAFS placement also causes problems. TPR Intake is the best making more power and not causing any problems.

if you're bent on AEM, you can get ebay Intakes that are AEM copies for much, much less

jway83, all Intakes have the potential for USER INSTALL ERRORS to trigger CELs tongue

I hope this link can help others...

thanks guys.
i really appreciate ur advice. yeah i like the idea of having more hp in lift, howeva i dun like the idea of bogging. I havent heard of AEM bogging down thats y i was interested in purchasing one coz i figured if it gives more power down low it'l get to lift better. Is there a website for TPR Intakes for the gts???

once again guys thanks heaps wave
