2010 Toyota Corolla AEM ETI Cold Air Intake Kit

Gone are the days of bolting on an intake system that just sits there and does nothing while the computer does all the work. AEM’s new 41-1403C Electronically Tuned Intake (ETi) system work’s with the Toyota Corolla’s computer to produce attention getting performance. With a majority of today’s air flow performance add-ons, the vehicle’s computer must adjust and compensate for the changes in air flow; however at times, the computer may be unable to completely adjust. With most modern vehicles, the mass air flow sensor reports the air flow properties to the computer, which in turn makes adjustments to the engine, transmission and fuel system to compensate and to keep things running smoothly.

To make sure the computer can compensate for these changes, the air flow must stay within a specific parameter. When the air flow goes outside this parameter, the computer can no longer adjust and in some cases a check engine light comes on. To combat this situation, many intake systems incorporate some sort of air flow modifier that either changes or restricts the air flow at or near the sensor to keep the air flow within the computer’s parameters.

Once again AEM is raising engineering standards with an all new series of innovative air intake systems. With its revolutionary ETI module and fully integrated design AEM has eliminated the need to restrict or stage an intake tube diameter as it crosses the MAF sensor.

AEM’s ETI intake system adjusts the sensor electronically to read proper air density instead of using physical tube designs intended to “trick” the MAF reading. This results in an efficient design with large horsepower and torque gains.

AEM decided to engineer an ETI cold air intake system for the 2010 Toyota Corolla with 1.8 liter engine because it is a great selling vehicle that could use some extra power and performance. Sure it is rated to get 34 miles to the gallon on the highway but it could use the extra boost an ETI air intake provides when passing and when the driver needs it.

Designed, tuned and dyno-tested specifically for 2010 Corolla models with a 1.8 liter engine, this easy to install intake comes with a lifetime limited warranty. AEM testing estimates a power gain of 6.9 HP @ 5700 RPM and a torque gain of 7.64 ft-lb tq @ 4400 RPM. See Dyno Chart for details. Actual results will vary depending on the condition of the vehicle, mileage, weather and other variables. Installation is relatively simple and is accomplished using basic tools.

Not only does the 41-1403C ETi intake system add quite a bit of horsepower at the wheels, it is also easy to install as seen in the iinstallation instruction sheet. The 41-1403C ETi air intake system has a durable gun metal gray powder coated finish and it comes with an AEM Dryflow air filter that is washable and reusable. AEM Dryflow air filters offer great filtration with little restriction and they don’t require oil. For wetter climates AEM also offers a water resistant filter wrap, part 1-4000, to help resist splashes of water.

AEM Electronically Tuned Intake (ETI) Systems

The Next Generation of Intake Technology
Once again AEM is raising engineering standards with an all new series of innovative air intake systems. With a revolutionary ETI module and fully integrated design, we have eliminated the need to detune or stage an intake tube diameter as it crosses the MAF sensor. The sensor is electronically adjusted to read proper air density instead of using physical tube designs intended to “trick” the MAF reading. The result is bigger horsepower and torque gains.

TECH TALK:
Most modern fuel injected cars use a Mass Air flow (MAF) sensor to determine the air flow rate into the engine and meter fuel according to input from the sensor. The relation between the voltage output of the sensor and mass air flow is adversely affected by a shift to a larger diameter intake tube because the airspeed is reduced. This causes the MAF sensor to “under report” air flow causing a lean condition or triggering a Check Engine Light. To accommodate MAF sensor reporting, many intake systems reduce the diameter of the intake tube near the MAF sensor to stock or near stock size because of the need to maintain the correct air speed for the sensor to report the correct flow rate to the ECU.

AEM’s ETI Intake Systems use an alternative design approach that allows the intake tube to maintain its diameter, resulting in more air flow into the throttle body. The ETI Intake System allows AEM to tune an engine for even more power by avoiding any tube down-sizing that will reduce overall airflow and horsepower. Instead, the ETI electronically communicates with the MAF sensor to ensure an accurate amount of fuel is being delivered even though the tube is larger in size than the stock system. This means the vehicle maintains the calibration as intended by the factory while enjoying the benefits of our custom designed aftermarket intake system.
