Yaris Intake Manifold

Just wanted to check back in a let the community know that the Yaris intake is still on. I have been using my Yaris to help get the low-buck turbo kit done and we had good success running at 4-5 psi level (good power and no CELs). Unfortunately we lost a rod while running higher boost levels and that leaves me with no motor to develope the intake manifold-we have removed the damaged motor and are doing a forged rod and psiton combo (hopefully with Garm's assistance). I need a Yaris to complete the production version of the intake to make it available for sale. Whoever suplies the car (for 7-10 days) will receive a free intake (in So Cal-Vegas Area). Let me know if there is interest.

I believe the test car will actually be needed in Palmdale, CA.

yaris intake manifold

Maybe it would be best to use Cali's car so he can then report to the members about performance. fitment etc...We will perform a back-to-bac test on the intake both on turbo and NA application. Production run of 10 intakes will be done by end of NOV.

So what happened with the xD intake?

Any hopes that one will be seeing the light of day?

I knew of a few people interested but due to your long and quite absence we totally forgot about it...

Please post here if the possiblity of a group buy comes up.

Good to see you back, I've been waiting patiently for this manifold. I live in Northern California and which I could help but, I'm sure theres plenty Yaris in the Vegas to Socal area that will help you out. If you could since we lost information from the hack post the graphs and pics it would be appreciated. Also is there anything anybody needs to do to get in on the first 10 or is it first come first serve.

Yaris intake manifold

Xd intake will see production if we have sufficient interest. I have the Xd ready to do the production piece, but we need to have at least 10 Xd owners wiling to purchase it before we can justify a production run. We just don't have a feel fo rthe Xd market-though the motor is a really good one-wish I had it in my yaris.

If you'd like to get some sort of official list generated on the site-that might be helpful.

Is this a request for the early Xb-we can just need 10 Xb owners to step up.
