The Power of Focused Engineered
- AMS Performance, as a foremost engineering company, has garnered its esteemed reputation over the course of several decades by manufacturing top-tier motorsports aftermarket components. Their unwavering commitment to a meticulous engineering approach to design has enabled them to produce parts that exhibit exceptional performance. Demonstrating this very engineering process is the MKV Supra Carbon Fiber Air Intake, which stands as the epitome of well-designed intake systems available in the market. At the heart of this intake system lies the sealed cold air intake box, the largest component. Recognizing that excessive heat poses a significant detriment to power output in subpar intake systems, the adept SnailWorks© Engineering Team at AMS Performance ingeniously constructed the air box to effectively shield against the scorching temperatures found in the engine bay. Moreover, they capitalized on the existing intake ducting in the Supra, skillfully devising an air box opening that seamlessly aligns with the air duct. However, the ingenuity of their engineers did not cease there.
- During their meticulous examination of the remaining system components, they unearthed additional opportunities to enhance the design. Specifically, they enhanced the intake piping, enlarging it to a substantial 90mm diameter to facilitate improved airflow. This modification not only boosts performance but also ensures compatibility with larger aftermarket turbo compressor cover inlets in the future. The significant advantage of this alteration becomes apparent when considering that it provides a remarkable 26.5% increase in cross-sectional area compared to the factory system, which is burdened with flow-reducing corrugations and narrows down to 65mm at the compressor cover inlet. Whether one intends to retain the stock turbo or opt for an aftermarket unit, this intake system caters to both scenarios effortlessly.
The Difference Is In The Details
- The installation process for this intake system is hassle-free, requiring no cutting, trimming, or removal of additional components. With just basic hand tools, it can be easily installed within minutes. Adding to its convenience is a purpose-built, reusable synthetic high-flow dry media filter, eliminating the need to invest in inexpensive factory paper filters in the future. The use of a “Dry Media” filter means that messy oiling of the filter is no longer necessary. This aspect further solidifies AMS’ intake as the superior choice available in the market. Specifically designed and manufactured for this high-performance automotive application, the washable MKV Supra synthetic media filter is meticulously calibrated in terms of size and configuration. This fine-tuning ensures that the filter not only delivers ample airflow for any MKV Supra, including vehicles with upgraded turbo systems but also maintains optimal efficiency without imposing significant restrictions or compromises.
- To ensure optimal airflow distribution across the entire intake filter, the newly designed spacious AMS airbox incorporates a clever feature that enables air to swirl around it. This innovative design promotes even cold airflow distribution, leading to a reduction in pressure drop and an extended lifespan for the filter before requiring cleaning. The AMS Performance MKV Supra Carbon Fiber Intake Kit is meticulously engineered to achieve an impressive 25% reduction in pressure drop, resulting in enhanced efficiency and increased power output. It is important to note that due to the Supra’s torque-based ECU tuning strategy, aftermarket engine components alone do not significantly impact horsepower unless the ECU is properly calibrated to leverage the potential of these new hardware components. In fact, the SnailWorks© Engineering Team at AMS Performance conducted extensive testing, including the installation of a significantly larger turbocharger on their test Supra, only to find zero horsepower gains without appropriate tuning. Hence, it is crucial not to be misled by competitors’ claims of horsepower gains without ECU calibration. The engineers expertly crafted the fully enclosed dry air filter with the intention of drawing in a greater volume of air into the cold air box, utilizing hand-laid carbon fiber construction for maximum performance.

- (*Does not fit with factory strut tower bracing unless additional spacers are used*)
- The filter uses specially designed dry media that allows performance and efficiency to be restored to near new each time by simply using compressed air (30-40 psi) from the inside out, making frequent washing unnecessary in order to restore filter performance. For a deep cleaning from extreme environments, a biodegradable cleaner such as Simple Green or other mild shop degreasers can be used. Simply place the filter in a solution or spray the cleaner on the filter. Allow the solution to loosen the particulate and then rinse thoroughly. Shake the filter or use compressed air from the inside outward to remove residual water and allow 24 hours to dry.
- Does not fit with strut tower bracing unless additional spacers are used*
- As these motorsports grade carbon fiber parts are hand laid, slight imperfections or weave pattern variances can be expected.

Items that are in stock in the US, either at Bulletproof’s warehouse or at a supplier’s warehouse, are generally delivered within 7-10 days. Special order items from overseas take considerably longer. As a courtesy Bulletproof offers delivery estimates to our customers which take into consideration manufacturer availability and shipping schedule. These estimates represent our best guess based on previous orders from the manufacturer and do not in any way imply a guaranteed delivery window. Many manufacturers work in a “just in time” inventory system and often take 2-20+ weeks to produce an item once an order is submitted. All deliverable items are then sent to our Japanese warehouse. Bulletproof ships a minimum of one full ocean freight container every month from Japan, oftentimes more than one a month. Ocean freight takes an average of 4 weeks. Typically it breaks down to one week in Japan for paperwork and customs, two weeks by boat and one week in US customs/clearance. Due to the wide number of variables between manufacturer and shipping schedules, delivery estimates are simply just that – estimates. We attempt to estimate conservatively and we usually deliver faster than our estimates suggest. It is not Bulletproof’s policy to guarantee delivery time of any special order item, this is impossible for us to do. By ordering you acknowledge that there is no required delivery ETA and an order may not be canceled or altered due to manufacturing or shipping delays, all ETA’s are provided as a best guess only.

We do pricing a little differently on our JDM brands and we believe in making things simple and clear. No hidden fees or surcharges. Every price you see includes the shipping cost to our office in Los Angeles, California and all the associated taxes/duties/fees for bringing the products into the US. The only shipping you ever pay is from our facility in the US to your location. Be wary of resellers that don’t include the cost of international shipping in their pricing on JDM parts. While we believe we’ll always have the lowest all-in price on JDM products, we offer a price match guarantee for all authentic parts purchased from authorized dealers as well.
For many international customers, it’s much more affordable to ship from the USA than from Japan directly, as the air freight and ocean freight costs are typically much less. However, for customers looking to ship directly from Japan outside of North America, or domestically in Japan, we can provide pricing specifically for that scenario. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any pricing questions or concerns. Please email us at [email protected]
