    Is it for a LC? If so get a SFS or forge TIP, B5 are for LCR's.

    Unless the stock one leaks I wouldn't change it, especially if on a budget.

    Im booking it in to a tuners for a remap soon so I was hoping to get a few mods done before I take it in. traumapat I thought that the standard one was very restrictive for tuning.
    BTW I have a LFR

    Toyosports is no better than std for flow. Stronger yes, but still flow restrictive

    fair enough I guess Ill leave it prob not worth changing for level of tuning Im planning Ive got a JR filter and a de cat hoping to get close to 220-230bhp after a remap.

    Thought it was an LC. LCR has been known to suffer from TIP collapse so worth doing if just for that. If your going for the usual stage 1 map then I doubt the tip will make a huge difference, probably worth saving your cash and getting a B5 variant when your going for stage 2.

    LOL Just realised. Your TIP wont restrict you gaining 230bhp as long as your downpipe and decat/sports cat flow well enough. LC TIP sure looks restrictive but not until the 240bhp mark (ish)

    You should be fine... cat and DP are the main restriction to worry about

    Cool thanks for that is it really worth fitting a forge DV over a working bosh one cant really see the point since they both do the same job. (except that one is shiny)
