XS Turbo + Intake?
Well, I've decided to save for XS's Turbo instead of getting TRD exhaust, headers, and CAI.

I was wondering, what all does the Turbo replace?
I'm pretty certain it would replace headers and exhaust, but would it be possible to have a CAI and a Turbo?

I think the XS kit is completely bolt on...it even has the fuel management system that comes with new injectors

you should do a search

but anyways, it does replace the headers with a Turbo manifold, but not the whole exaust. and as far as CAI, it depends on room, you are going to need a cone filter such as the ones on CAI anyway, but not all the piping, you might could get custom piping to a better location if you want and there is enought room

if you go with the Turbo still get the TRD exhaust or a large diameter piping

I thought if you got a Turbo system a CAI did little to no good. confused

a Cold Air Intake such as the Injen would be useless because the Intake would have to be on the Turbo, and not on the throttle body.

thats what i said, you can't use a CAI Intake kit, but you since you still have to have a filter, if you have it in a place where there is a lot of air flow it may help a little. and will large diamiter piping help since noe back pressure or anything is needed

Back pressure is never needed in automobiles. These aren't 2-stroke engines.

Anyhow, to the original poster, you can't use an Intake that was meant for N/A use. While you could possibly use the filter, it wouldn't flow enough Carbon FiberM for a Turbo application.
