They are still in production, a few companies have made them but they are wayy over-priced right now.. The one form the dealer is a joke.
How so? What will the other aftermarket co's offer that's different from AEM? Just curious....

I was looking at a magazine that came out TODAY (but I can't remember what the hell it was called) that had a nice 3 page review of the tC. They actually did a Dyno test too. The tC they were reviewing had the TRD exhaust and CAI. If I remember correctly they showed 151lb/ft torque and 140hp to the front wheels...that's about 5hp and 10lb/ft torque increase from the stock dyno numbers we've been seeing, correct? The exhaust isn't doing even 10% of that, so the CAI actually isnt' that bad.

Interesting... i'd like to see that. I'm not at all impressed with the TRD exhaust, but it does sound nice... ...
but while I may consider the intake, i'd imagine similar gains woudl occur with the TRD air filter.....

Never compare results of 2 different dynos, or even the same dyno done in different conditions (temperature/humidity/pressure).

Even when you do consecutive pulls on the same day/same dyno - dynos in general have 1-3% (or more) error margin, plus the car can perform differently pull to pull, all this added together and it makes it very difficult to catch a 5hp increase.

^^^ imo, i don't think most people have the technical know how, or the proper tools to make their own intake. Also, not too many people would want to fudge with their brand new car, and have the possibility of fubaring it. Don't forget about the factory warranty if you get it installed at the dealer too. For a lot of people, the warranty is very very very important. Just my take on that.
