Noise.

It's simply an intake muffler. EPA has moved past exhaust systems and is now addressing intake noise pollution.

In some vehicles the air hat can actually improve airflow by smoothing it out before entering the intake manifold, but yes, the primary function is to reduce any sucking or whistling noises that would otherwise come from the throttle body under acceleration. In any event, the stock airbox is actually a superior design to most of the short ram intakes on the market because it draws cool air from the fenderwell. The +/- 2 HP increase from short rams is simply due to the increased intake volume and minimization of restrictions, but a true cold air intake system utilizing the same components would probably only pick up an extra 2-4 HP anyways so it's almost a moot point. That's why I'm happy with my intake mods that cost me less than $50... drop-in panel, cut out the charcoal filter, remove the baffles and silencers from the fender well, etc. It doesn't sound as cool or flow as well as an aftermarket job would, but I probably picked up the same amount of power and throttle response at 20% the cost.

My IAT was nearing 180F the past week. I capped off my deck plate mod and it definately likes the slightly cooler air coming from the fender.

That's what they'd like you to think, but the intake doesn't draw air from the hole unless the intake itself is sealed to it. Think of the hole as more of a "vent" at that point than an induction point. The real purpose of the heat shield is to reflect the hottest air from the exhaust manifold/header back away from the filter.

Last weekend in Vegas for the daughter's wedding, OATs were around 105 and my IAT never went above 110 unless we were sitting in heavy traffic.

A snorkel would be best, because the hoods on our trucks are in a low pressure zone so you wouldn't get a "ram air" effect from an intake that draws from it. You would get the cooler air still, but if you were going to the cost and effort of something like that it would still be better spent on a snorkel positioned near the roof in a high pressure zone.

It was in heavy traffic with those temps. Once I got moving it was about 10 above the outside air. The engine felt happier when it was "cool"

No, I bought it from a private party who had an extended warranty through Toyota on it because he bought it Certified Used. Toyota says "yeah no problem send us $50 and we'll transfer the warranty to you" so I do that. 6 weeks later I haven't heard anything so I assume it's all just taken care of. I had some ball joints that were shot so I took it in to have them replaced and they told me the warranty wasn't under my name so they wouldn't honor it. I told them the story and they either didn't believe me or didn't care. I tried contacting the previous owner through emails, phone calls, and texts because he told me "if you ever need anything just call!!" and he never got back to me. So not only did I get hosed out of $50 but the three years worth of warranty left on my rig is only usable by the previous owner who could care less now because my money is in his pocket.

Factory warranty is valid for the normal term for any owner.

Extended warranties are not "warranties"... they are service contracts and may or may not be transferable, but they are not automatically transferred at sale even if they are transferable.

Mine was a "warranty" straight from Toyota for being purchased Certified Used, not a no-name service contract with a specific dealership, and it is supposedly fully transferable. They just decided to screw me, much like Toyota Financial almost did but again that's a long story. http://www.toyotacertified.com/warranty.html

It was all over this truck lol, this is my first and only Toyota. The whole Toyota Financial thing could've gone MUCH worse than it did but luckily the guy I bought the truck from wasn't a scammer. Long story short - I paid cash and submitted the proper forms to Toyota Financial (along with all the notarized paperwork and everything) to release the lein. They were supposed to release the title to me and send it to me by mail. Well two weeks later, I get a phone call from the owner saying he got some paperwork for me from Toyota. Yeah, they released the lein and signed the title over to the PREVIOUS owner! So essentially I would've paid $13,000 cash to pay off his loan for him. If he wanted to be shady about it, I would've been totally screwed, all because freaking Toyota can't get their shit together.

I don't know man, everything was submitted exactly how I was told to submit it along with all of their notarized forms and bill of sale from the State. The check I sent them was in my name and everything so I don't know how the hell they managed to mess something up like that.
