There are dino results on a 4-runner floating around that show the deck plate mod gives the same gains as a CAI but only costs like $10.
You can also put the deck plate back in when you want to go in deep water or when its really cold out.
Most people on here went with the deck plate mod for these reasons.

Only driving habits will affect MPG the most.

I installed the K&N CAI well before I TW(bummer). Makes more noise under full throttle load, but can't really say that I get better gas mileage, maybe 1 mpg (if).......no tremendous increase in horsepower, sure looks cool, blah, blah, blah.....would I do it again, prolly not.

I agree. All show and no go. I feel like I wasted the money.

Any marine/boat shop should have one if you want to do it locally. Paid $13 for mine, which is a 4 inch screw-in. They are waterproof so I would recommend sealing with silicone between the face of the airbox and the seat of the plate. Point of the deck plate is to be able to close it up and go back to stock for deeper stuff, so the mounting should be waterproof as well. Here's mine.
