    Come on people, I know your out there! Show some pics of it! Is it really worth the $30 it goes on Ebay :rolleyes:? And are there 2 different ones? The first picture is the one i see most often, just saw that second picture for the first time and if that's official OEM i think it would look sweet on my truck since it would match the TRD Oil Cap i got already..:D

    I heard one of those bad boys adds at least 15hp at the wheels! Not bad for $30.

    :laugh: NO! I really would like to see some user pics of it. :( I kinda got a bit of OCD in me and i think that second one would look good with the TRD Oil Cap. :D


    Yeah! So it'll add another 15 HP on top of the 75HP my Devil Horns and TRD Oil Cap add already? Suh-weet ;)

    Take this for what it's worth, but it says it changes the operating temp of the engine. It has a different pressure rating than the stock one.

    The one I have is the top one. I don't think the bottom one is a genuine TRD item.

    yea 30 is just too much but if it does lower/change the engine temp then this might be something worth lookin into....

    OK OK OK..... I have one. Alright I feel better now.

    I have not notice any operating temp changes with normal day to day.
    Actually the way it works is that it keeps the coolant at normal temp by releasing the pressure at 1.3 instead of 1.1 (stock). This keeps the coolatn at normal temps until it starts to release pressure.

    The only time you should see this benefit is in sustained high heat and high revs where the temps are just too hot for the normal operations of the radiator to keep up.
    I got it for looks and because the summers are hot as balls down here and sitting in traffic doesn't help dissipate engine heat.

    PS- If you look at the second one, its probably an aftermarket knockoff that can't even handle the pressures of the stock cap. Notice it says 0.9!!!! Maybe its for a Corolla or better yet a YARIS!!!!! :eek:

    I can post pics tomorrow
