Only AEM induction systems feature CNC mandrel-bent 6061 aluminum intake pipes that are individually tuned in both length and diameter to maximize power in each application.

All AEM air induction systems are C.A.R.B. exempt or pending exemption (50 state legal) and come with complete installation hardware, comprehensive instructions, AEM decal and license plate frame.

Air Induction Systems key features:
* Outperform every intake system on the market
* Only air induction systems on the market that utilize a complete hardware kit with soft mounts for a guaranteed perfect fit every time
* Every intake system is C.A.R.B. exempt or pending exemption (50 state legal)
* Available in blue, red and polished for show-quality looks

Pros: Nice, deep rumble at 4000RPM's and up
Cons: Nothing at all
It is a very good CAI, and I had no problems driving over puddles during the thunderstorms we just had a few days ago. Not that I drove over them on purpose, but occassionaly there were some I couldn't avoid and nothing at all happened to my car, perfectly fine. No CEL whatsoever.

Pros: Nice Sound and Gains
Cons: Install involves a lot of removing stock parts and cutting plastic that interfere with installation.
You get your money's worth. You really notice a difference in power. Nice sound when you reach the higher RPM's. Installed it during the winter and had no problems with water getting into the intake.

Pros: Noticable gain and sounds great
Cons: Parts missing (prob only my kit and wrong screws)
Install of this product was easy. Instruction may be too wordy. When I both the kit it was a 2nd gen, it was missing HID ballast bracket and screws are horribly off (longer/thread was too short on the intake). In addition the radiator adaptor plug is too tight to push in but a simple sanding works great. Overall, I'm giving this 8 out of 10 just coz parts are missing and the screws for the MAF. AEM didn't know 02 celica comes with HID but a simple phone call worked fine...

Pros: Sounds great. Looks great too
Cons: A CEL came on once, but fixed it and hasnt sense
I really like it! The blue looks awesome and it really makes it stand out in the engine bay. Only bad thing is that it threw me a CEL but I fixed it and I have not got one sense then. Dont expect much gains

The first mod I did. Have had it for three years. Great intake, improves low-end more than most intakes. High-cam sounds awesome.

Pros: nice pull, awesome growl in lift
Cons: fan shroud fitting had to be modified to fit
Install had a couple of snags MAF screws were a little long the problem was easy to solve with a pair of washers. The fan shroud fitting was a little to big for the hole so I had to shave it down with a dremel to make it fit. I love the intake no CEL's and the car really growls when your on the gas. I really recommend the intake.

Pros: great sound
Cons: pricey for a pipe
When you floor it, the intake roars esp in lift also. Bogs sometimes


can get an ebay intake(replica of aem gen 1 cai) for 1/4 the price and mod it a little for a no bog, free hesitaion intake.
