Injen is definitely better quality. DC Sports is owned by Pilot Automotive which sells their cheap aftermarket parts at OReilley. It was a bummer when AEM sold DC to Pilot. I ordered the Injen and it will be here tomorrow. Wish AEM had a CAI for the iM.

They look pretty similar. The injen appears to be a one a piece unit.
Whos got experience with these?
I bought the DC Sports one because I'm hoping that the 2-piece design will be more flexible.

I will. I'm hoping to get these installed soon. I just installed my Tanabe springs and FSB along with my TWM short shifter. I'm trying to get caught up on all of my car projects.

I detailed my 2017 RAV4 a few days ago and yesterday I detailed my 2006 Scion xB. She has never looked so good in the 5 years I've owned it. The shine is insane in person.

SuperchargedMR2 I ordered a DC Sports CAI to go with my headers from them.

SuperchargedMR2 Finally found them under some other listings. They show them for the 2016 Scion iM but not the 17-18 Corolla iM. I just happened to find them so I finally ordered a set of the headers.

There is an article online from Super Street for basic mods. Just type in superstreetonline.com and search under project car. You'll see an article about the Scion iM.

They also have something for the suspension mods.
I've tried to find the DC ceramic headers that they installed and saw a solid 11WHP increase but I've had no luck finding them.

Why would you swap out the throttle body first? There is a huge restriction in the stock intake removing the restriction by replacing the entire intake with aftermarket or just removing the charcoal filter will improve the air flow to the engine.
