TRD intake

Does anyone have any info on a trd intake coming out? i just ordered my frs and im getting the trd exhaust from the factory. im assuming there wont be much in the way of gains from that (optomistically 5 whp and -10lbs). I have seen some good gains on cold air intakes and would like another 10 factory warrantied HP. I know trd came out with one for the TC so id assume one for the frs would be on the way eventually.

The TRD box is being featured on the Pro/Celebrity race that toyota is having. If you do a google search you'll come up with plenty of hits.

I am also interested in the TRD box because it looks to be about twice as big as the stock airbox, also it looks badass. Expect it to cost an arm and a leg though.

I'm sure it will cost a bit, im willing to pay up for factory HP as opposed to the injen which will void the warranty, im just worried since it is in fact factory warrantied that they will hold back and not get as good of gains as they could. Definetly will come in handy down the line when the supercharger becomes available tho.

Mine is on order also, but I ordered it with the TRD filter. Subaru engines are known for having strong intakes stock, so I just went with a drop in filter, like many on this board have.

Why does the Injen intake void the warranty?

Yeah intake shouldn't void warranty unless they can prove it caused the issue. I have the TRD exhaust and its nice but if you plan to do anything later on you will have to get a custom mid pipe done bc the TRD one is less than 2.5", the rest is 2.5". Enjoy your new FR-S!

Stay away from overpriced TRD components like their intake and catback unless you can get some kind of killer discount. Much better options out there.

In California, we need ARB approved intakes. TRD would be ARB approved if sold by the dealer in California. I believe AEM is ARB approved as well, not sure. For my MINI S, I went with a DINAN CAI that was ARB approved. For Californians, it one less thing to worry about when it comes time for your emissions test.

Id say the trd parts are worth it until your warranty runs out. granted they have to prove the part caused the problem, but if your engine goes and you have an intake on there you can be damn sure theyll give it a go. i know with the injen its been dynod at +15 whp. Im hoping that the trd unit would be good for 10. @ Jacob how much HP is the TRD exhaust worht? im hoping 5 HP and 10 lbs lighter than stock

I think it may be fun to start a betting pool of how the TRD intake will fare in the dollar-per-hp-gained contest!

I'll put down $20 that it is worse than the Air Raid!

Ill bet that it will run about ~$300.00 with about a 6~8 hp gain.

Nahh 300 is too low lol

Their exhaust is an axle back and its 1100

I'm betting it will be around $450USD but your performance guess sounds about right.

The only way to see great gains with an intake is to get an aftermarket tune. Otherwise, your gonna see your MAF Fuel Trims go all over the place. Perrin's Intake seems to be the Optimal Intake in the market without needing a tune.

Thats what im afraid of. I honestly see it ending up around 400 bucks and 5 whp. Honestly if that ends up being the case ill just go Injen and get it tuned. Im thinking with the Injen, trd exhaust and tune 25 whp would seem reasonable.

Minimal. The gains aren't noticeable and I haven't ran it thru a dyno. I will say I get compliments on its tone and I love the D shaped tips. Hopefully once I get my custom mid pipe made and put a motiv over pipe it'll breathe a lot better (I currently just have the HFC). Still if you want to save money go another direction but if you really want TRD it'll just cost you more in the end. I personally love it but I know I made a more costly choice.

You could get Injen exhaust to match up with the intake. TRD I believe isn't worth it. You could get HKS for $100 more or go to Perrin Catback both 2.5" vs. TRD. My plan is tower bar from Cusco, tune from Unichip with the display and I will work on hardware, more on the Perrin banwagon. Too be honest it would come out $1200 with Perrin catback and intake hose and CAI system to $1200 vs. TRD $1100.

Just to get this out of the way you can get TRD exhaust for $950 with 2.99 shipping from toyota parts outlet so not $1100. I'm not saying get it but that's $150 less...

The 1100 is the pure price, It's them installing it for you.

I still don't think it'll cost 150 to install bc I had them do it for 100 and I'm sure it can be done much cheaper but that's just semantics. Also I'm not sure if you meant it's an axel back bc the mid pipe diameter is not increased but technically it's a full cat back. Not arguing that the price isn't ridiculous bc it is but just depends on if you want some TRD candy... If you don't have at least one TRD part you shouldn't be allowed to put TRD emblems or stickers on your ride .

I will never understand why TRD doesn't push the envelope a little more with thir products. It seems like every "sports development" team out there creates more power with their products for their brands such as SRT, Chevy's SS, Mazdaspeed, just to name a few. I know Toyota is all about keeping their reliability, but if people are buying aftermarket mods, then Toyota should realize that their customers are willing to take a risk with their parts. I'm pretty sure the supercharger will dissapoint, just like the Tacoma one has. Hell, even the F-Sport development team is pushing the envelope with their Lexus stuff.

The prices they post on their website are what they charge for the part and installation. Perhaps it's possible to have it done cheaper through them by the route you took but that's their pricing for the part. My mistake on the axle-back part, I was thinking of the TC i believe.

Sterling McCall Scion here in Houston offeres a package with the TRD catback and the Injen intake for like a $2000 plus. I don't think they would offer that if it voids thier warrenty.
