New Product- AEM ETI Intake System For 2013+ Scion FR-S / Subaru BRZ!


When AEM first released the 41-1408DS ETi (electronically tuned air intake system), with its estimated 10 horsepower and 8 ft-lb of torque at 6500 RPM, only some of the 2013 Scion FR-S and 2013 Subaru BRZ owners were able to enjoy the boost in performance. The reason is because the 41-1408DS, at the time is was first released, was not 50 state steeet or emissions legal.

In March of 2013, the California Air Resource Board granted the AEM’s 41-1408DS air intake system for the 2013 Scion FR-S 2.0L and the 2013 Subaru BRZ 2.0L an Executive Order. So now customers in all 50 states can install the 41-1408DS in their 2013 FR-S and BRZ 2.0L cars and benefit from the estimated gain of 10 horsepower and 8 ft-lb of torque at 6500 RPM.

The Scion FR-S is the sister vehicle to the Subaru BRZ and both are amazing sports cars that really bring the fun that these automotive manufactures are known for. There has been quite a bit of collaboration between Toyota and Subaru on both vehicles, resulting in the best of both worlds. Both vehicles come standard with a 2.0L DOHC VVT engine resulting in 200 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque. With that much power in such a lightweight vehicle, just thinking about these two cars is enough to make any automotive enthusiast itching to get behind the wheel.

To increase the fun factor, horsepower and performance of the Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-s, AEM offers the 41-1408DS ETi air intake system which comes with all the necessary adapters and components for an easy install. These include a HDPE (high density poly-ethylene) air intake tube that is designed to decrease restriction and increase horsepower, cold air box and Dryflow Synthetic air filter, and all of the nuts, bolts, hose clamps and connections needed to install this monster into your Scion FR-S or Subaru BRZ. The Dryflow Synthetic air filter has its own benifits, in that it is a washable and reuseable air filter that can go up to 100,000 miles between cleaning, depending on driving conditions.

The benefit of the cold air box is that it helps isolate the air filter from any under-hood engine heat, protecting the much desired cold air that comes from the outside of the vehicle from being “heat soaked” by the hot underhood tempratures, thus helping to increase performance. Another large benefit of the 41-1408DS air intake system is that is has received exemption from the California Air Resource Board for the 2013 Subaru BRZ 2.0L and 2013 Scion FR-S 2.0L. This exemption means that the intake system is street legal in all 50 states. Besides the great benifies, features and performance of the 41-1408DS air intake system, the intake is also backed by AEM’s Lifetime Limited Warranty.

The 41-1408DS air intake system utilizes AEM’s ETi (electronically tuned intake system) technology to improve air flow, increase horsepower reduce restriction; all while not setting a check engine light. AEM’s ETI Intake System allows engineers to “super tune” an engine for even more performance by eliminating the need to down-size the tube, which can reduce the overall airflow and horsepower for the engine. Instead, the ETI electronically communicates with the MAF sensor and vehicle’s computer to ensure that 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 designed by the factory while still gaining the benefits from our custom designed aftermarket air intake system.
