why bother installing the tems if your ganna switch it to coil covers anyways?

ill just cause you to so double the work

you prolly know this but youtll need more than just the tems botton to get it to work... youll need shocks to... which means your taking out the springs/shocks to put tems shocks then taking it out later again to put the coilcovers why bother... just wait for your coil covers or just get shocks(tems compatible if you really want it) and springs,

the TEMS isn't even very noticable when working properly anyway - not enough to pay off for a couple hundred bucks minimum and a days worth of work anyway. All it does is change the effective stiffness of the shocks by rotating an adjustment, nothing spectacular. Most people just run with it on SPORT to begin with. If you're really set on doing it, however, you will need compatible shocks (Toyota or Tokico). You must have all 4 shock controllers to install on the strut towers and the central switch to operate them. There is also a display on the dash to multiplex into your existing system as well as the wiring associated with the process that automatically switches the system from Normal to Sport based on feedback from the car.

Entirely not worth it IMO, but if you can find a local car with it take a ride and see for yourself.

TEMS works great on new shocks, but if you're getting coilovers, TEMS will not work with them, so it's not an issue at all.

i agree. my tems is noticably different in the 3 settings. too many people running around on old ass stuff and say that tems sucks needs to get newer shocks. but if you are going coilovers you are going to be doing 2x the work of 1/2 the gain

If you want electronic gizmo's, check out Tein coilovers. The flex and the SS allow you to use their EDFC system to adjust the dampers in the cockpit (like TEMS, but with their coilovers)
