New TRD Cold Air Intake

found this link on TRD's website for the dyno results of the 4.0L intake and it seems a little ridiculous

http://www.toyotaracing.com/trd/part...parisons.html#

if it really net you 10 HP and 18 ft/lbs at 2600 RPM i feel like A LOT more people would have it haha. Any thoughts?

I have the old style TRD intake along with the TRD cat-back exhaust. I can say my truck feel a bit faster than when it was stock. Also I test drove a '11 TX pro and can feel the difference between 2. Mine felt a bit peppier and I'm assuming due to the TRD CAI.

Truth hurts, manufacturers lie to make money, and butt dynos are biased.
I pump premium gas.

ya i tried premium for awhile and felt no power increase and actually saw a decrease in MPGs. Ya i don't believe what they are saying b/c as stated previously the "new" TRD intake is made by AEM and supposedly inferior to the "old" one made my AFE which is pretty much the AFE stage 2 si intake. Just wondering what you all thought because besides the dyno graphs being done in water color and with no labeling haha the labeled numbers on the chart seemed overdone

Well said...

I won't put a CAI on mine because gains (if any) are usually on the higher RPM scale so they wouldn't do anything for me in my normal driving anyways besides make it noisier. If I could just bolt on 10 HP and 18 ft-lbs of torque across the whole RPM range for $300, I'd do it in a heartbeat. I'm not aware of a product that does this yet.

I got my intake because I was going to supercharger. I'm still debating if I should because there is really no point in trying to make a heavy brick fast since it will never be really fast but the extra power from the supercharger would be nice for everyday driving.
