CAI/SRI buyers guide


Recommended Posts

I ended up purchasing a CAI off ebay for $130 then bought a K&N filter with a pre-charger sock ($125), initially it didn't work right, caused my car to run rich and fuel cut at 3,000 RPM, but I then took further inspection of the pipe and noticed that the inside was dirtier than Friday night's hooker, so I cheaned it out and plugged up a hole, that is used for the vacuum in the American models, re-installed it. It then worked perfectly after that... I also re-installed my Pulse plugs(spark plugs) and it's running better than it's ever been before!

Although the experience of it not working wasn't exactly pleasant, But that MAF has been in 6 other intakes, due to people not being able to manufacture something to the dimensions given to them :P

For 1ZZ you want the one for the xr. It's a smaller diameter compared to the one for the xrs (2ZZ).

Hey,

just looking to buy an Injen RD2082P for my 05 sportivo.

has anyone installed this part before and if so how did it go?

also do bumpers and batteries and other major parts of the car and engine bay need to be removed before the cai can be installed???

Thanks

If its for a Corolla XRS or Matrix with a 2zz then its fine.

It makes it a hell of alot easier to remove battery and bumper trust me.

Good filter option would be the K&N RX3900-1

You can get this from any autobarn for around $90ish. When I called up the one in Auburn Sydney they didn't have any in stock but can order them in from their supplier

Also this pod filter is good for those buying a TRD CAI for a facelift sportivo and don't want to remove their foglight

You can pick up a Simota pipe and Filter From AutoJoy in Parramatta for the 98-01 ae112 (bug and facelift).

Got it for Alby(my car) about a year ago, can't remember the price, but it sounds like sex (if two rhinos are having a go).

Well worth the $ in smiles

Just found this on e-bay, they have it in BLACKTOWN! http://cgi.ebay.com.au/K-N-APOLLO-CLOSED-COLD-AIR-INTAKE-KIT-/260605016540?pt=AU_Car_Parts_Accessories&hash=item3cad44f9dc

Want to know if this is a better option than an injen or TRD CAI, i know its a BUTLOAD cheaper....

Cheers guys.
