Yes but for 2nd gens there aren't any with the exception of the new TRD and the crappy Airaid that come with the carb sticker.

Well the reason for that is where they placed the MAF sensor. I kinda did forget about that but it has it's problems so I pay no real attention to it.

I couldn't tell ya, downsizing maybe. At school our whole team, 20 to 30 peps tops, were gonna do a R&D project on basic physics then the following week after we did some testing they said only 10 were allowed and the rest were SOL.

forced induction is the next step, ram air is like a pusy forced induction, only really see the best Ram at higher speed since the air eventually would get forced in instead of sucked in, then of course u gotta hav actual hood scoops, or if ur an OG, u would run hoodless

wow, i posted this a couple of hours ago and wham-o... a bunch of replies.

yeah, i was wondering if any of these CAIs have real dyno test results to back up their claims. same with aftermarket exhausts. these companies make them for so many applications. i kinda doubt they've taken each exhaust and CAI and dyno'd all the cars they make them for.

so besides that problem, they're not street legal. kinda a hassle to take off/on for smog checks too...and for something that does not improve performance or worse yet, decrease performance since some of them do not seal out hot engine bay air but in fact, may increase the vacuum thereby sucking more hot air in than a stock intake.

i'll pass and save my money for more important mods like the lift and wheels.

Not true. The newer TRD CAI is CARB legal. I believe there is a Volant CAI that is also CARB legal.

the most important thing isnt the "intake" itself, its the filter!! So the CAI isnt exactly what you wanna replace, u wanna replace that shit ass paper air filter u have that does nothing but restrict air!!!! If you want an actually, very small, HP gain and a few more mpgs then just get a drop-in-filter! They ARE smog legal and a good one is only about $40, problem solved!!!!!

There is no wheeling in the CH area. I usually head to the OC, LA county or Victorville area for wheeling.

So I've browsed this thread and did some minor searching. But, my Tacoma is due for it's first smog check this year. I have a drop in K&N filter. Will this be a problem when getting it smogged? It's been a while since I've had a smog check done and I'm not sure, do they do a visual and inspect the filter? No stickers or anything else that would make it look aftermarket without actually looking at the filter. And I'd guess tail pipe emissions wouldn't be much more either, but wanted to verify from anyone who has smogged their V6's with the drop in K&N!

Thanks!
