What is a Cold Air Intake and what will it do for my Scion?
Most people think a "cold air intake” is just a cone filter stuck onto the intake inlet. In truth, a true cold air intake reroutes the intake to draw in air from a cooler air source outside the car, pulling from the fender or in the bumper ahead of the radiator, rather than suck in the hot air inside the engine bay.
True Cold Air Intake systems often come with a heat shield to separate the intake further from the engine bay to keep the hot air away from the intake inlet. Keeping the incoming air charge cool is important, because colder air is more dense and has more oxygen, and so it provides in a better air/fuel mixture, allowing the engine to make more power and run more efficiently.
Most Scion Intake systems, though today's OEM intake systems are quite well engineered, they are designed to keep sound levels down to a level that will please "the average consumer", rather than enthusiasts. Being quieter while running comes at the expense of smooth, free air flow, and that sucks up horsepower. By equipping a free-flowing intake system that draws in the coolest air, your Scion's engine will perform to its full potential. We offer "Cold Air Intake" systems from aFe Intake, Takeda, GReddy, Injen Technology and Perrin Performance.

What is a Drop-In Air Filter Upgrade and what will it do for my Scion?
One of the easiest ways to upgrade your intake system - and one of the least expensive - and the one that can't void anyone's warranty is fitting a high flow direct replacement air filter. This "OEM+" upgrade simply replaces the thick, poor-flowing air filter element and resides within the stock housing, so the intake system is minimally modified. We offer Drop-In performance replacement filters from aFe Intake, Perrin Performance and more.
I want more power. Can I TURBO my Naturally Aspirated Scion FR-S?
YES, you can! We offer high quality Turbo Kits for the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ from Full Blown Motorsports, allowing you to get the performance car that Subaru and Scion outright refuse to build for you. If you want a Turbo FR-S or a Turbo BRZ, a turbo kit is the only way that's going to happen. Turbocharging completely changes the intake system of your Scion, so it's important you opt for a well-engineered, complete kit - and have it installed by experienced technicians. Having completed several of turbo installs on the FR-S, we've got it down pat.
