AEM's ETI Cold Air Intakes Add 9 HP to 2008, 2009 and 2010 Scion tC 2.4L

The stylish Scion tC has been attracting the attention of drivers since its introduction in 2005. Any driver looking for a compact car with good fuel mileage and stylish interior that is packed with an abundance of features should look into the Scion tC. The newer models from 2008 to 2010 have brought some needed improvements in the exterior and interior design. The addition of the iPod interface was also a nice touch. Although the Scion tC is a great buy for your money, the 2.4 liter four-cylinder engine is not very powerful.

To increase the power and performance in your 2008, 2009 or 2010 Scion tC, AEM Induction Systems has released two cold air intake systems part 41-1401C with a gunmetal gray finish and part 41-1401P with a polished finish.  These were designed to fit the tight engine compartment of the tC.  These cold air intakes are not typical cold air intakes.  They were designed with AEM's Electronically Tuned Intake (ETI) technology.

These intakes were designed with AEM's ETI module which electronically adjusts the tC's MAF sensor to properly read air density.  The result is an intake system that works with factory electronics and provides large horsepower and torque gains.  The 41-1401C and 41-1401P are made to completely replace the Scion tC's restrictive factory intake system.  These cold air intakes connect at the engine throttle body and place the air filter at the driver side wheel well.  This ensures the delivery of cooler outside air to the engine.

The intakes both use an AEM DryFlow air filter, part 21-200DK. AEM's oil-free DRYFLOW air filter is extremely durable and easy to clean.

Designed, tuned and dyno-tested to fit the 2008, 2009 and 2010 Scion tC, tests show these intakes increase power by 9 horsepower at 6400 rpm.  Installation is relatively simple and is accomplished using basic tools.  All AEM air intakes come with a limited lifetime warranty.
