I've used both airaid and kn oiled filters on jeeps, trucks and atvs. I never had an issue with any of those. It is true, from my experience, that if you over oil a filter that oil will get sucked pased the filter.

I have decided this time to go with the afe stage two, oiled filter, in the box. This decision is made simply because I don't want as much sound in the cabin of my truck.

I think your seat of the pants dyno will tell you that whichever you choose was worth it. IMO CAI are worth the investment. You will also probably see a small MPG increase if you don't get addicted to the sound rush and can refrain from "just for the heck of it" fast accelerations.

I have used K&N for a long time with no problems but for the initial filter change on the Tacoma I am going to try the Pro Dry. The cost is minimal at $35 shipped. I am at 6500 miles now and will change filters at 10K when I change the oil.

This is based on the positive reviews here at TW.

K&N's allow for more air flow. I've owned them for many years.

I own an AFE now - and it doesn't have the same air flow as the K&N did.

So, it all depends on what you're looking for. If you want the most air flow - get the K&N. If you don't care so much about airflow and want easier cleanings...get the AFE.

DON'T listen to the guys that say "cai's don't do knothin to our truck's". Because they don't know what they're talking about! I had a KandN drop in filter before and it made absolutely no difference.THe afe cai w/pro dry s filter definately improves hp,torque and throttle response. It is by far the best money i have spent on my truck to date! You will feel an instant increase in off the line power. BUY IT u won't regret it!

I'm not saying that the K and N cai's are better or worse, just that the money spent on a cai is definately worth it!

Of course i can only speak for my truck, but with the stock intake my truck felt sluggish taking off from a dead stop. I usta call it a turd! But the cai definately helped it in that regard! Now it wants to burn rubber off the line!

The afe is the same as the trd only the box on the afe has a hole in the bottom of it allowing air to enter in two different locations. Supposedly flowing more air.

I have a K&N with an AEM dryflow filter. I've gone back and forth between the CAI with both filters and the stock intake. Before the headers it was just a big noise box. With the headers it quites down the CAI quite a bit and seems to be a bit better, but alas, I don't have any dyno results. It makes changing the spark plugs a little easier though.

I bought the drop-in aFe Pro Dry S. The increased throttle response is what I noticed from the switch from stock.

My AFE prodry was installed today, and I am already amazed. I can drive at much lower RPMs without feeling underpowered, which has already made a noticeable difference in MPG. I only have 2400 miles on my 2.7L, but for the first time I have gone over 100 MPG in the first 1/4 tank. In fact, I am at 110 miles and the needle hasn't touched the 3/4 tank mark. Woohoo!

Acceleration is much better, and the truck seems to drive much smoother now.
