Yes the AEM is carb legal as well as the TRD one. I suggest F5Fujita for there intakes. The craftman ship is aweome and the performance gains are noticable compared to the AEM. Plus the F5 looks really cool!

Dont toss your stock intake i plan on reinstalling it before the smogman sees it. but really a short ram is easy to take in and out 30 minutes tops. CAI would be more difficult but not by that much really.
i will keep this in mind. and will probably get a ram air vs. the cai.

Toyota didn't ditch AEM and switch to K & N. AEM still makes the factory intake but puts a TRD sticker. AEM also makes Fram intakes if you din't know. When ever I go to AEM, i always see toyota boxes and Fram intake boxes over there with guys putting the intakes in them.

i thought that the F5 was still pending? is that tru??
i'm not sure. still leaning towards the fujita. looks like great quality. dont know if i want the CAI or the RAM. which one is best? or does it even make a difference? someone noted above that it's defintely easier to install the RAM intake then the CAI. :)

The RAM is easier to install. The CAI (which I have) requires more work. Six and one half dozen to the other.

Ain't I a lot of help? :D

IMO, I think the F5 Fujita is a good intake. I also had the AEM L-pipe intake, but didn't like the low end gains I got. I also ran the Perrin, and like someone stated above, it's best ran with an open grill.Sounds meaner than all get up too. I also swapped out the poopy foam filter with a K&N filter. Oh yeah, FYI on the Perrin. If you run the open grill, remember what happens when water gets on your filter. Just food for thought :D

The fujita isn't carb legal but who cares about it being carb legal. Just take of the part when you need to smog it or just pay someone to let you pass ;)

allow me to shed some light on the intakes of xB's.


ALL OF THEM ARE THE SAME DESIGNS, well, except for the perrin, that's original.


The short ram is exactly the same design in Injen, Fujita, ebay, YDR, etc.

The CAI's are the same, injen, AEM....

oh K&N is an original design as well, but not a very good one.


If someone asks about short rams, which brand to get..... get the cheapest, since they're all the same pipe design.
