Exhaust+CAI=Results? I've got an opinion.

Alright, tomorrow my 2009 Magnetic grey Taco TRD 4x4 will be receiving some new parts. I have read review after review about whether or not something works or if it is just stupid and so on... Well I may have wasted my money but whether I did or not I wanna let the people of Tacoma World know how my truck performs after installation.

In the end all I really wanted out of this was to do something different. Once I get the truck cleaned up I will post some pictures as well.

Any requests from Taco owners before the installation tomorrow?

Results that don't include before and after dyno runs are worthless. Nobodies butt dyno's are calibrated the same.

This entire post basically sounded like a bunch of jibberish.

All I was gonna do is just give an honest opinion on whether or not I thought that spending my money was worth it. Nothing more, nothing less.

I run butt synthetic because it's more accurate.

It is pretty self explanatory: Truck=receiving new parts. Me=letting people know how I feel about it after it is installed.

I apolagize if that is difficult.

I know that would be an accurate way to get the exact results but I'm just a college kid who enjoys working on his truck and I wanted to add some mods. I am just going to get in my truck before installation and floor it and after installation I am going to do the same. If I notice any kind of difference I will let y'all know, if not I will let everybody know about how I wasted my money.

So less power mods? K&N doesn't make a cold air intake and will reduce power most of the time. Chokemasters are proven to rob some horsepower. Of course you will say your truck is faster simply because it is louder.

Mods like this are worth it if you are looking for a louder truck but not for MPGs or large power gains or any power gains in a usable RPM range.

Just remember the above quote in bold as, we also have read review after review and it often just ends up as a pissing contest due to no hard facts of performance and someone always gets their feelers hurt.
I added the TRD CAI and TRD CAT back system (never doing a review as there are plenty) because I liked how it sounded, no more, no less. It was a huge waste of $ but I would do it again. Just being honest.
Enjoy your truck and the CAI. I bet it will sound badass. GL
Thanks! I appreciate the positive words. I agree that people do just end up arguing but I'm not concerned with battling people on whether or not it was worth it. I just wanna let people know from a drivers personal opinion whether or not it was worth it to me. To me it'll be worth it if it makes the truck more fun to drive and if it has a new sound to it.

You forgot to throw a derp in there...

I'm pretty happy with my TRD Catback exhaust...came with the TX Pro edition...I've been tempted to throw in the TRD CAI, but I really can't justify 400$ for extra braaaaap. Once i've got more monies coming in and can afford that, My truck will sound awesome

The desire to conclude you didn't waste your money is strong. Extra noises fools many.

I haven't said anything yet because the parts aren't on yet. I am aware that flow masters have been "proven" to do that. By running the flow master exhaust all the way out is how you lose the performance. Dumping it maintains the performance side of things. *Or so says the mechanic doing the installation for me* I trust him although its possible for him to be wrong.

And again *most of the time* I'm not sure how you get most of the time results. Either it works or it doesn't and thats what I am here to let people know. If I wasted my money then I fully plan on honestly admitting to it.
