TRD CAI intake arrives today, install advice?

After waiting two weeks for this thing it will arrive today. Any tricks or advice for an easy install?

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

This is the second gen intake, I prefer the first gen but wasn't able to find one.

How long do u think it would take? I have a new born so time is at a premium. I'm hoping to get the intake and new spark plugs install inside three hours. Wishful thinking?

Intake took me about 30 minutes, the passenger side plugs took me 10 minutes and the driver side took me about 45 due to the space. Remove the intake bracing so you can fit your hands in there.

The MAF sensor advise is exactly what I'm looking for.

Depending on how many miles you have on the truck I would clean it with some MAF spray while it is out.

Not sure. I got some at Vatozone. Make sure it is MAF cleaner. It won't leave a residue.

Removal of the stock unit is pretty easy just make sure you unplug/detach everything including the little FPR hose in the rear. I would advise you to wait until the stock air unit is completely out of the truck then remove the MAF sensor just in case you drop or lose it.


Where in SOcal are you? PM if you need help i've removed mine 10+ times so i can pretty much do it asleep.

Thanks for the offer, my only issue is I can't plan ahead for when I can work on the truck. When the kid decides to sleep I start working and when she wakes up I have to drop what I'm doing and watch her. Shes a very needy baby...

If it is an oiled filter go light on the oil.
I usually let it sit with some paper towels stuffed in it to suck out any extra oil.
It will get on the MAF and make life crappy.
Take your time and fit it all together before clamping down the bands to make sure it is all together properly.

All done, thanks everyone... And for anyone who may see this thread in the future... Get some silicon spray for lubing the tubes. I almost lost a finger nail trying to push it in.

I remembered you had an AFE intake before the TRD.

Any reason why you made the switch?
