Hi all, I just got a new 2012 Xb and while I don't plan for extensive modding I do think a CAI is in order.

Here's what I found, any thoughts?

Injen Cold Air Intake: Scion tC 2011 +

CAI isnt forced induction.

Cold Air Intakes are the ones that do have the extra tube that draws air from areas away from the motor and heat. Short Ram Intakes and essentially designed to allow a greater volume of air to flow into the motor with less restriction. I've run my Injen in both configurations and can't tell a difference other than sound (I prefer the CAI). IIRC the CAI did bring in slightly colder air but the difference was so minimal that I wouldn't put a lot of thought into it.
