Afe cai or volant cai

I have a 08 4 cyl. access cab 4x4, I was wondering which CAI was the better one to go with on the 2.7 engines. The AFE or the VOLANT. Any thoughts.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Welcome to Tacoma World!

Depends on what your definition of "Better" is.

performance, best horsepower. Just want to add some pickup and speed, nothing insane, not racing or anything. Thanks

Neither will give much more h.p. maybe a couple more, but dont expect a big gain.

What kind of increases would they give? I was wondering becuase everyone seems to have the afe or the volant. This would be my first upgrade and wondering if it is really worth it or not.

I think that if you look at the fact the filter is re useable, it may be worth it. Many people have the AFE, and it seems like a quality product. The AFE has a dry filter as opposed to an oiled one. Maybe some more members will chime in and give their $0.02.

Thanks. I was looking at a few auto sites and they advertise the afe as adding 50 hp. I find that hard to believe, the most I have heard cai giving was 10 to 20.

The absolute MOST I have seen on a Tacoma has been 5. The frase "Up to" gives them the green light to advertise that crap.

unfortunately not a lot of options out there for us 4 cyl guys. Headers, exhaust and intake all we pretty much got till you start lookin into something real expensive.
