AEM Cold Air Intake - 2009 Toyota Yaris
Instructions took you through the process step-by-step. Took some time though, make sure you have the right tools (metric sockets, allen wrenches, car jack(under driver's seat), lug wrench, etc). Taking apart/reinstalling the under-fender parts was a bit tricky & some of the parts you have to unbolt were in tight places and often difficult to get loose (try to avoid stripping bolts). I put silicone around the headlight to ensure no water leaks through on rainy days. Product has a nice appearance, but there was no real sound difference or noticeable horsepower increase (so in my opinion not really worth the $$ spent on the system). Overall, just a fun project for my Dad & I could work on.
Let the engine breathe!
The AEM Cold Air Intake was the first performance upgrade I installed on my little subcompact Toyota Yaris and I learned to love it from the very beginning. The throttle response has improved, the engine seems to have a little more power in the mid rpm range, acceleration feels better and I love the sound coming from under the hood above 3000 rpm :-)
AEM Cold Air Intake System Review
I love this system, I'm an old fart not a kid who want's a tricked out ricer, but a Dad who travels 125 miles every day back and forth to work. I have a Yaris (like I said I'm a Dad) and it originaly got 40 miles to the gallon. I am now up to 67 MPG. The system installed perfectly. It was a 45 minute job. Everything was out of the box and onto the intake. I'm an old Harley Guy and that never happens with aftermarket stuff for HD. I'm bragging to all my buddes about my clown car and the great gas milage.....oh yes I did happen to smoke a BMW and a Mercades. I'm a dad......I'm not dead.
