Blitz must have spent a fortune in R&D behind their new intake system for the GR Corolla...馃檮馃檮馃檮
I can literally buy a 45 degree aluminum piping bend for $10 on Amazon and have the same exact thing...馃ぃ馃ぃ
My how the mighty have fallen....

Is this better or worse than when Spoon sells OEM Honda parts painted yellow or when they sell OEM Honda parts that aren't available in one country to customers in another country as Spoon parts?

It's like a glorified ebay product. Where did Blitz source this? Alibaba wholesale?

Man that sure looks like the $25 intake I had on my 95 accord in the early 2000鈥檚 馃ジ

Some people will die on the hill that JDM companies make the best stuff but it's just a name sometimes...

Also is that in actual intake or just the inlet

Just a pipe and couplers? Where's the beef? No improved airbox. Japan is lacking in their aftermarket parts for the GRC. HKS you're up next...

it's the suction kit.
This is their GR Yaris intake, FYI

And another one

could be worse. they could have replaced the OEM intake box with an open one and suck all the hot air in the engine bay.

with a metal pipe, the air may actually get hotter than the OEM plastic pipe.
Intake doesn't seem to be a major bottleneck on stock cars anyway. That thread comparing GRY intakes showed most yielding about 10 hp for $500 or more. That's not great bang for the buck, considering you'd be wise to pay for a tune on top of your intake. On modern turbo cars it seems that short of big turbo builds, intakes are mostly for making whooshy noises.

Gains have been shown to be more than the Yaris.

Did you see a noticeable change that you can quantify with actual timeslips?

14whp vs 10whp. Some GRY intakes showed similar gains. For a minimum of $500 and with a tune being advisable on top of that, even if not "required", that's not great bang for buck. People should definitely get intakes if they want. I just think $/whp wise, it's not the place to start. On modern DIT turbo cars with modern emissions regulations, downpipe/tune seems to be the way to go.

it's mostly just for noise tbh
Yeah, but can YOU actually see a difference.

I haven鈥檛 had a chance to go to another test and tune to run it on and then replace it with the factory intake and compare. I would prefer to have a data logger at that point

I'd be down to see some real world data. I'm just leery to trust dyno results on this car.
