I've been following the threads about the CAI that TRD released for the Matrix. Here's a pic of it. Isn't that purdy?????? Why couldn't TRD get their brainiacs to make us one???? By the way, how much do you think they pay for the TRD plaque on it? Sure looks nice slapped on another manufacters CAI!!!!

One benefit of having TRD is warranty. Well looks like with a TRD CAI Toyota will not be honoring warranties in the case of hydrolock with TRD CAI.

Makes you wonder whats the point.

the bracket looks better, but I think the Injen has the better look (especially if that's the only color offered...it was apparently an unpopular one among the Injen)

so why does the matrix get a CAI? Is it because it's higher off the ground than a celica? Sometimes TRD can be so gay...

TRD is ridiculous. The Matrix gets a CAI, and we don't even get a short ram intake. Ugh. :wtc:

How is hydrolocking the same as driving off a cliff?
apparently looking at your sig your somewhere in the desert so maybe large puddles isnt something you are familiar with.
