Is blitz LM intake good on performance, because it take the hot air from the engine?
Is the engine check light on, after u changed the blitz intake?
(because my friend he put the blitz LM intake on his Toyota Ceilica, and the engine check light is on.)
Celica uses the same MAF sensor as the WRX. It is VERY delicate. if people are not careful they damage it when they are removing it and changing intake. This is likely what your friend did. He's going to faint when he sees what a new sensor costs. they are bloody expensive. I have yet to see a CE light on any intake kit for the WRX or Celica.
The temperature/intake tract length discussion has already played out in a couple of threads in the performance and more boost forums. Check out any thread about the Injen or other cold air intake system.
Actually I had a sneak peak at some new data from Crazy Al, the guy with the fastest WRX in the US. He has just run some tests on the Injen and the results are nothing short of extrodinary IF you are running a big turbo. He has the PE 1820F. Looks like I may keep my Injen after all.
...from a current (soon to be x) celica owner...the only difference between the SUS and LM is the filter...but i'm not sure how the LM compares to SUS.... with SUS my throttle response was greatly improved overall. the car also pulls harder all the way to redline than it did before once vvtli kicked in... if you've already got the intake tube from another intake...i'd recommend the SUS filter...it was the best $290 i spent on my celica...and when i get the wrx this weekend....i'll probably start looking for the SUS application for that so its ready to go once the break in is done. as for the MAF....if it is similar to the celica....make sure not to overtighten it and make sure all the clamps are tight as well....most of the CEL's on celicas were usually cleared up by tightening everything and making sure the MAF wasn't overtightened leading to damage or damaged during handling....
Actually you should have kept your Celica intake kit. The 00+ Celica kit is exactly same as 2002 WRX kit except the bracket is SLIGHTLY different and can be altered easily. That and it has an extra tube you can throw away.
installed the aem cai in my wrx and as soon as i turned the car on the check engine light came on...i just reset the ecu and have been running for the past 4 days now with no cel! i guess it just needed to readjust for the new intake....
I have a big ass turbo(PE1820F available fromgodspeed ) and a turbo back exhaust and Blitz SBCi-d boost controller. Only thing that scares me is I think that I can hear some pinging...that is bad Juju. I am sure that it was already there, but with the stock airbox gone, I am now hearing the sound. I need a knocklink and an ecu bad! I was only pushing 12 psi of boost...I had to back her off to 10.
I am probably pushing around 300 ponies...I do not want to blow her up.
MAF = Mass Air Flow Sensor. As I said before, Celica one is same kit basically. Celica uses same exact MAF sensor. As for the CE light I have not narrowed it down yet but I suspect that is an install problem, not an intake problem.
