So far the difference between AEM and EMS is as follows: EMS CAI exists, AEM CAI doesn't.

I would not rush into purchasing the EMS CAI for several reasons:

1) there are no dynos from the company.
2) there are no independent dynos
3) there are no independent reviews
4) $349 is WAY too much for a CAI - they are obviously playing on "beight the first"

By the way the supercharger supposedly includes the cold air intake at least thats what the "TRD" guy told me at Scion night.. not 100% sure he's right be it would be worth getting confirmation on.

does anybody have a pic of the AEM CAI installed?? This EMS looks like it goes down behind the radiator??? not very cold down there. The stock airbox pulls air from the inner fender.(I thought this is where the AEM goes too??) That would be a much better place to get cold air plus it keeps the pipe away from that hot ass exhaust!!!!!

Last I heard from both McGeorge's and my dealership, the CAI for the tC hadn't been released yet...

Oh wait.  That's 3hp and 2lb/ft torque with the intake AND cat back exhaust by EMS.  That's pathetic.
no you had it right the first time. the base dyno run is with exhaust and the gain is with the intake added on.

yea guys ...... im sorry i had to make such a satirical post. I know im supposed to be mature and help everyone out in my posts but seriously, anyone who pays that for a CAI is lacking serious common sense and theres NO way to make my opinion of it sound good. All I can do is chuckle at these company's and how stupid they think we really are. -T
