I do plan one day with in a year to a year and a half to have the trd S/C, I just have other mod's in mind and plus I want my car payed off in full first. I'm thinking about an injen intake for now. Do I need to keep my air box or does the trd kit come with a whole new intake system? Already have a catback, am I really going to feel a difference with an intake? What would you do if you have this option?

Comes with a new airbox I believe. I would keep the OEM airbox though; you never know youmight need it some day. If you planon buying the SC, why even waste the 300 dollars. Go lower your car or do something useful. You will end up just taking the intake out.

I have a lot of suspension suff as of now (all trd). Looking now at performance or exterior mod's like the lip kit and a kaminari hood. I can't wait to see how my new axis mod's are going to handle (20lbs), driving on mushy snow tire right now. But you're right, why buy the intake. It's just going to be a while before my car gets boosted.

if that 300 bucks is burning a hole in your pocket, might i recommend a lightened flywheel? it would cost a bit more to get installed if you cant DIY, but it is a super solid mod. i run a fidanza flywheel and the supercharger. did the flywheel first, it is a noticeable and worthwhile swap from the OEM.
also, if you are thinking supercharger, you may also want to factor in a replacement BPV as the OEM is suspected of leaking under boost.
or, a nice clutch kit. ACT and TRD both have them, you may want to consider that with the supercharger as well.
but, yeah, no intake. useless, really.

I have to agree with everyone else. If you're going to get the s/c an intake will be a waste. It cannot be adapted to the s/c without modification. I don't know about you but I wouldn't be to quick to cut up a $230 intake. If you really have to spend the money listen the inevitablegod and get a clutch and/or fly wheel. Personally I think you should start saving for the S/C now and try not to let the money burn a hole in you pocket. Just my $0.02.

How easy is it to install the BPV and will it void any warranty. I really could care less about any warranty, the TRD s/c gives me peace of mind with the modest boost and all the R&D that went into it. Basically, I don't want to screw up anything doing the swap myself. Now if TRD would cut the $$$ on the kit any time soon... A guy can dream....

replacing the stock BPV is pretty simple. no, it wont void your warranty.
