You can't just post that up and not talk about how much it costs!

I like it! Beats $300 for a mfg one and I'll wager it works as well. All the bullshit about "tuned" and "engineered" is just that!

Good job!!!!!

All that is going to do, is draw in hot air off the engine and exhaust manifolds. Guaranteed all the "bullshit" and "engineering" that went into my TRD CAI will draw in cooler air than that rigged filter set-up.

as the guy said, he's working on the heatshield that'll keep all that heat out and it'll basically work like my K&N. give the guy some credit and get off his nuts

How much did your TRD kit cost? $300? $400? No offense, but does it honestly provide enough performance gains to be worth that? I'd bet it doesn't do much more than a $50 drop in on the stock intake with the secondary filter removed.



So like these guys said. At least he took the time to make something, and if you'd actually read they post you'd see he's planning a heat shield for it. Meaning its NOT done yet. So maybe once the heat shield is done he cuts away some metal to let more cold air in through the fender.

Personally, I think the CAI's are a waste of money anyway. Marginal gains, insane pricing. Unless you're coupling it with a SC, exhaust, Y-Pipe, and MAF calibrator. Doesn't do much good to get more air in if you can't get more out.

$300 to my door. Does it provide enough performance gains to warrant the price? With the supercharger? Hell yeah it does. It's also been shown to draw in air that is the same temperature as ambient.

The removal of the secondary filter does NOT gain you anything. This has already been dyno proven.

I understand that he took the time and effort to make it. Good for him. I never was getting on his case. I quoted nagelg because of the mis-information that he was spewing.

Which implies you missed the part about the future heat shield who's sole purpose is to prevent it from drawing in warm air from the engine bay.

Fine. Since I'm already the bad guy:

When the heat shield is installed, where will the intake get it's air from?
