as i said she wanted it to be different. intake...well secrets arent always meant to be kept its a temp until i can get my hands on the real thing, and i dont mean the trd intake, though at the time it seems like that may be my only option.

HAHA, yes! Racing stripes... I was waiting for that. But pink!?

I understand... wifey.

Now cut a hole in the front bumper right in front of the cone, find a piece of mesh, paint it the same color as the car, and find a proper sized rim. Ghettofunctional ram air.

looks good, could you take pictures from a bit farther back, maybe an angled look at the front from a bit higher vantage point?

ill try to get more pics from a different angle today to show the whole of the stripes.

its a short ram custom to fit the yaris with a mounting kit. im working to extend it, like the trd, to under the headlight with a different filter probably one with a water guard because of the location.

and im glad that someone enjoyed the stripes ive been gettin mixed reviews. personally i loved them, mostly because i was the one who put them on, and ill drive her car without any regrets.

i really like the way the stripes look just below the back window, never even notice the little curve there, like on the front grill :)

Looks nice, keeps your wife happy, way to go.

Katana, the intake is made from sections you can buy at either pepboys, autozone or most automotive stores. They cost about 12-15 bucks for each piece so the whole intake can end up costing alot if you try to go cold air.
1 more thing, that is 3" tubing and the mass airflow sensor will not like it.
It looks like he mounted that sensor in a smaller tube then connected it to the 3" tubing, I guess that would work.
I am sure it sounds sweet.
