Air & Exhaust Mod Tacoma

So i Installed a Flowmaster V6 dBX CAT-BACK Single Side 409S with the K&N 63 Series Aircharger Kit. The truck sounds great but the pickup off the start is slower then before. its a 2008 Tacoma access cab V6. As per flowmaster i reset the computer by removing the negative side of battery for 2-3 min. The computer will learn and adjust settings. anyone ?

Somebody correct me if I am wrong, but I think it takes 20-30 minutes to reset the computer. Least that's what I think I read. I have never had to do it myself.

First off, welcome to the forum. I have a KN intake as well, also I have JBA short headers, and a banks monster exhaust. The low end is a little weak, but in the higher rpm range, I found thats where all the ponies moved to, plus maybe a little bit more. Also it sounds great. Gas mileage I cant say has improved, but it definately has not got worse. I average 20mpg. And again, welcome to the T-Dub

K&N will also require oiling which can lead to early MAF sensor issues. In a world of afe and amsoil dry filters, I cannot understand why K&N cannot/will not get on board with the technology.

K&N also don't make a cold air intake for our trucks which makes me again wonder why they don't get their act together. Its sad when ur pulling cooler air bone stock than u will with K&N.


Over the years, anytime I installed an intake I've always disconnected the negative battery terminal during installation.

OP if ur looking for a cold air intake, go back to stock, get an afe stage 2 Si, or an older style trd intake, a volant intake with ram scoop (and a maf calibrator from URD with the volant map), or the urd true cold air intake.....iirc air raid also makes an after market intake that looks to draw from the stock location?

K&n usually provide a small shield or something, but I highly doubt its gunna prevent heat soak from the engine bay.

x2!!! however i run the K&N and noticed a better mpg increase... but no power increase....

K&N doesn't filter well, but then again they aren't designed for maximum filtration, they are designed for maximum performance through the largest increase in air flow than most other brand filters. As far as oiling and MAF issues, I'm sorry but that simply is because the owner is over oiling the filter. I've run K&N products for the last 15 years on several high performance cars and sport bikes and I have never NOT ONCE had a Check Engine Light. Not even one time. If you want filtration than stick with a stock filter.

So its been a couple of weeks now, Thanks for all the info. I can tell you that the truck now has all the HP after about 35 - 40 mph. I punch it and go's into passing gear and takes off like a rocket. Off the line its a little sluggish. The flowmaster is ok not the best in performing, sounds just ok. Whats next? Just hit 100k miles. Rides like it was new!!!

A URD MKIII should be next on the list. . You won't have to worry about any low end loss then.
