I would be surprised if any one having a new in-take, if they get more then 5 HP from it....My buddy just did same for his 2007 Mazda Speed3 and the before and after Dyno showed an increase of just 6 HP....the idiot didn't do his research....after $600 installed he gained a whopping 6 HP!!!!

Save your money gents!
Thanks for your ever positive outlook Olavich. I'll bet you go around telling kids there's no Santa Claus dont you?

FYI I wasn't looking for horsepower out of this 'in-take'....and I think I said that any power gain would be a 'wee tiny' amount.

BTW Pavel accept this site as my free gift to you: http://www.freewebs.com/steven200/

My pleasure to provide this DIY for the Yaris. Sorry I didnt provide even more detail. I like to give back to this site which has provided me so much and has become an addiction for me.

Hopefully this will assist with future intakers.

The airbox bottom bolts were not a problem...Just had a long extension on my wrench, which the ladies love.

Hey, if you want to live in the land of dillusion, that's your choice. It just seems really immature to add a toy to your car that probably gains 1 or 2 HP, just so you can have a "better" sound?

Back when you were 8, you added a card to your bike, so that when it drags over the spokes it made a cool motorcycle like sound. Well, it seems that you're still in that mind frame today.

You and everyone else knows damned well that your intake does effectively NOTHING for performance on your car. What a f--king waste of time, resources, and money!

Grow. Up.

The land of 'dillusion'? Can you explain that one? LOLOLOLOL. Give up while you're still behind Olavich.

And you still suck...hard.

Zero times. But don't you think before you add mods, you should determine what the benefit is? I mean, even if it cost you just $10, if the mod don't do shit to improve performance, or MPG, woudln't it occur to you to not make the mod if all it does is change the intake sound? That's the point I'm trying to make....if the "benefit" is just in your head....ah, heck....why do I try to reason with a young guy like you?

Hey, I know.....add a tail pipe insert to your Yaris....just a few bucks, and I heard on the internet you'll gain 5 HP! Get the kind that flairs into two pipes, then you can claim "dual exhaust"! lol

We modify our vehicles simply because we want to. When I pull into my dealership coming to work every day, I see a handful of white sedans exactly like mine. Perhaps it is only my perceived youthful angst that propels it, but the feeling is always present that I would like mine to look different. So, would a few hundred bucks for sticky graphics or shiny wheels enhance my vehicle in any mechanical way? Nope. But I'd enjoy it because it was different. I need no other reason. Therefore, I feel that if the intake makes a cool sound and nothing else, who cares? It differentiates that vehicle from the next. If it gains .01 HP, so what?
I say let the lemmings jump off the cliff if they like; they will be smiling on the way down, when you, Pavel, are still bitter.

Pavel who pissed in your corn flakes? You need anger management classes badly.

People modify they cars to be different from others, it's kind of like putting their personality into the car. Even if a modification looks stupid or does absolutely nothing in performance to the car does not give you the reason to tell someone off. Just say "it's not for me" or something else intelligent, or even better don't comment at all.

RedYaris great install and hope you enjoy it.

How easy is it to change/clean the filter? I had one on my last car and I had to pop the liner above my driver side wheel to change the filter, way too much work. This doesn't seem that bad, but still it seems like it could be trouble.

Filter cleaning is recommended every 3K miles. I dont look forward to taking it off, cleaning and re-oiling it thats for sure.
