Cold Air Issues...
Is there any way that I can get around taking the bumper off in order to install cold air? Also, how do "offbrands" compare to Injen and other popular makers of Cold Air Intake? I mean the kind you see on ebay that cost like $40. Please let me know, and if anyone else has any offbrand parts, then let me know how shitty they are. Thanks.

Also, I know this should be directed to another forum, but if anyone has a used cold air, or one they are willing to sell, hit me up. Thanks.

i have the AEM CAI and i didn;t take the bumper off. It fits in there fine. The Injen does too. I wouldn't put anything but brand name in my car personally but its your call.

i have AEM CAI as well but i had to take off the bumper..i just had to take it off again yesterday to clean the filter...maybe its because i have TRD action package bumper..or because i have a GTS not a GT ? anyway i like my CAI even tho i have to take off the bumper..its not that hard but the plastic clips are aggrivating


MEOW!

It all depends if you still have wheel well plastics? My car lossed them because of my kit so I can just turn the wheel and pull the filter off. On the other hand it's easier to remove the plastic then the bumper and remove the filter. It's a tight fit but doable.

you shouldnt have to take the bumper off to install most CAI's. should be a relatively simple bolt-on (relatively)

I have an AEM CAI which I bought from everythingcelica.com , and I love it. I Did not have to take the bumper off, although I did build a custome door under the front fender, so I can clean the filter easy. Personaly, I would not put anything in my car that wasn't Top Quality, But then again , to each his owne.
