Anyone know the exact performance gains with the TRD cold intake used with the TRD exhaust?
I'm buying a new tC soon and I would like to know if those TRD parts are worth it. Thanks in advance, Kenjamin
Definately agree - no horsepower. But if you do it right, better fuel economy. I can get about 34-35 miles per gallon on the highway with those two mods that I put on myself. I noticed it immediately after the weekend i installed both.
If you get the cold air intake, DO NOT let the dealer install it, and if you do, make sure you take it apart and throw away the retarded plastic cover/satin pouch your air filter is wrapped in. It kinda defeats the purpose.
As Well, IMO - the exhuast isnt that loud, which i was happy with.
I believe it can be done, for sure. I've even managed to break 30 mpg myself recently. I've adjusted my cruising speed down a little, and it helps a lot. Still I've seen 29 crusing between 80 and 85. Not all bad, just very little acceleration or deceleration.
