K&n intake system

i just put the K&N intake system on my 07. I was just wondering if anyone out there has one also, and if it made their truck very noisy when accelerating? It also takes my truck longer to shift gears? Anyone have any insight for me?

Hmmmmm I know you don't really want to hear this, but I went thru the same thing.

The bad is you lost torque off the line and 1-2 mpg.

The good is that you gained some noise and a couple ponies top of the rpm curve.

I've got one also. Yes it makes your truck sound badass...unless you plan on racing or driving in the upper RPMs alot it wont make any difference. Mine didnt take longer to shift but it could just be your trucks computer adjusting to the new intake

well i am glad i didn't pay for it, because the only thing i notice is the sound. hopefully the exhaust and new headers will help along with a remap.

I had one on my '07 and took it off because of the increase in noise level. I don't race my truck, just drive it, and the increase in noise was just not to my liking. Now some guys, will love the increased sound level, and that is fine for them.

I just had mine installed last week. 2010 model. The kit cost me $270, and shouldn't be hard to find for that price online. I knew it made the engine sound badass, and that's what I went for. My ECU is still adjusting, I guess, so I won't know about the MPGs for a while (how long, actually?).
I also have a Magnaflow kit coming my way. It sounded nice on a friend's Taco. Again, mostly for the rumble, and perhaps for some MPGs.

It took my ECU a while to adjust, I think it finally figured out the intake was on there and threw a CEL. Trying to get all of that figured out, this intake mod is starting to ture into a $500 noise maker after I get the MAF cal.

maybe the filters are but the the whole intake itself isnt. Afe designed the trd cai and both the afe and trd will give more for the money then any k&n will on our trucks.

K&N



TRD(Old)





The same????? AFE and TRD use an actual enclosed box compared to the "heat shield" designed by a 12 year old. For sound K&N but for some gains TRD(old) or AFE.

K&N intake system = The most overrated aftermarket part since 1990.
