yeah i have the same problem too...i dun know wat celica you have, but i have gts...at 3000 rpm there like a lost of power...i tried to race my car once after i install the Injen CAI...i lost really bad that night...i search around that if you put the Intake in...everything at less than 4000 rpm you will lost at least 9 horsepower...i have some old sport compact book...some how i find the info about that...If you want to race...at leat start at 4000 rpm...the stock Intake will go straight and not have a gap at 3000rpm...u will gain a lot at 4000 rpm to 6000rpm and over...if anybody know more about this...give ma a hoollllaaa too ppl...

It is your MAF sensor. All you have to do is get some rubbing alcohol and a q-tip, and clean it off. It is very common because the cotton on the filter will sometimes get caught onto that sensor. I have only had to clean mine once, and it is good as new.

There is a "dead" spot right before lift in all gears if you have an Injen CAI. That's what monkey wrench racing was working on with tuning.

i have AEM but with Injen filter.what do you mean AEM duplicate?if you are talking about the ones on ebay,they are similar!i wouldnt go so far as to say duplicate.

HYBRID:resulting from the combination of two or more mechanically dissimilar origins!
