i drove easy-c's car the other week and there was absolutely no bogging. immediate crisp acceleration and the lift felt and sounded awesome.

i have 100% confidence in chris and totally support TPR. i'm in on the second batch of exhausts (coming out soon) and #32 on the Intake list. i've already pre-paid for the stage2 cams and the racing header (which isn't even out yet).

of course there is a wait. but it should be well worth it. everybody that has received their exhausts and Intakes are ecstatic.

word from easy_c is that the Intakes will be of metal. the second batch of exhausts are awaiting flanges. somebody from the fontana area has got to go to the shop for test fiting the Intake before production commences. the camshafts are available now (a week or so turnaround time) but i'm still awaiting dynos. the header is not in production but eventually will be.

everybody wants tpr products but are holding out 'cause of waiting. tpr is doing small custom production runs contracted to major companies and people holding out is making easy_c front a lot of money (which he lost a ton due to the previous shop last year stealing it all).

i took the initiative to meet up with chris to see what i could do to help out and get these projects rolling for not just myself but everybody. selling a couple camshafts is the equivalent of selling like twenty Intakes (in terms of revenue) and will definitely speed up the process.

on these production runs there are still slots open on both the Intake and exhaust lists. it's better to jump on early then await another batch later on. i'd suggest to all you tpr fans that haven't purchased to actually get off your asses and do it. you'll get great products and you'll speed up the development of future celica specific parts.

I have the TPR exhaust. I don't have it dynoed, but the butt dyno tells me that I definitely have gains throughout the powerband, most noticeably in the lower rpms. It seems to get up and go faster than it did with the stock exhaust. As for the craftmanship, I couldn't ask for any better. It fit right up on the flange perfectly, welds were good, and the sound is very deep and not at all raspy, perfectly smoothe. I give it 2 thumbs up!

the cams are being redesigned at the moment but the I/E combo does put down good numbers.
