Very nice! Did everything just bolt right up? Had to make anything? Brackets? Feel a difference?

Need to make 1 bracket, real simple tho. There is a bit more performance and it is louder too.

No, its actually the bracket under the small round rubber insulator on the underside of the intale. The bracket you mentioned comes with the kit.

Check this bracket out, See link here ---> http://www.scionapocalypse.com/forum...hp?p=5011#5011

If your worried about it then buy a drop in TRD or K&N filter and be done. The second layer is probably for sound resonance or has to do with squeazing out a bit more mileage but I will ask around to see what it is.

The whole box gets removed even if you install the TRD cold air intake too

A short ram intake is not made to pull in cold air. You will only get that from a cold air intake. A short ram is designed to pull air in more quickly. Gains are roughly about the same between the two, just all depends on what look you rather.

I guess it is more about look.. because it dosnt seem as if it would pull in air much faster just b/c its shorter... but oh well.. looks nice...

Deff pulls air in faster, less of a strain on the engine, less turns and bends to go through.

Example, take a straw, put it in your mouth and the other in a cup of water and suck in really fast.
Now take about 5 straws, make one really long straw with them put it in a cup of water and suck in, which one is easier?
The shorter one.
