Not true.... Just to clarify.


Even when the first gen Yaris (Echo) and the late Gen share the same engine 1NZ-FE, there are some some IMPORTANT differences onthe placement of the perifericals.

Just at the top of my head... the Throttel Body possition and Intake configuration is different and the Pulleys configuration is different as well.

So it PROBABLY won't be a plug n Play unit for a 1st gen Yaris ( ECHO ). Not to mention the ECU and wiring is different as well.

For a first gen Yaris you are better off looking for a supercharger from a 1st gen Scion xB. That is a much better match than the US spec Yaris.

how would i retune this thing if i added richard's intake manifold and a bigger throttle body?

how long is the warranty for? what kinda coverage?

+1 on a payment plan. 4k is a lot of money.

He said originally $3770, I'm sure that's still the price as he hasn't edited his post stating that.

Also saplaymate asked if their unit could be warrantied, which leads me to believe the kit they installed did not operate the way it was originally intended.

Not trying to get a discount from them, lol, just stating we don't know all the facts for the kits that both saplaymate and ddongbap have. (Anymore, I remember the threads, just don't remember the content. lol)

read from page 1 $4100 is the MSRP price....$3770 SHIPPED is the PRICE

and the power gains are different...

It would be easier to replace the pully for higher boosting the ability to easily add an intercooler and maybe richards manifold.

Personally I like the looks of this kit more than the blitz kit. Like I said if my tax return is enough I might buy this kit.

but you'd have to retune with richard's intake manifold i'd assume. and if you got a pulley for higher boosting. i dont want to spend hundreds of more dollars trying to find a guy who can tune this thing here in hawaii. i can see it now... ah

This was the kit that i originally wanted. Too bad it came out (official release -U.S.) after i made up my mind to work on the other car. We shall see. That pricing is not that bad, but $3700 in my wrx (powerwise) would give me like 3x the power this puts down. So it is a tough choice.
I just had my eye on a $2800 coilover from KW to replace my tein flex's. We'll see.

A solid pulley could be replaced with an overdrive pulley to push more boost. This has potental to make more power with that configuration.

yeah, I guess I don't really think about warranties, I voided my Toyota warranty the second week I had my car.

trust me, i know what you mean. I put a 6" lift on my brand new truck 6 months after i got it. And voided the yaris warranty within 6 months too. however, i trusted the quality of the items being put on that would void my warranty. there are a lot of questions about this kit still...
