I did the 6in deck plate. Yeah its a little tight, but it fits. Don't know how it compares to the 4in but it roars pretty loud when I get on it. I'd recommend it but then again the extra openness might be detrimental to the performance...but I love it

No deckplate mod for the 2nd gens. Most 2nd gen owners just take out the secondary filter I believe.

I did the 4" deckplate and I have no complaints after having it on for about 2 months now. I was a little worried at first when we had a few heavy rains but Toyota did a good job making it hard for rain and small puddles to get up to the airbox! Plus its got a sweet sound around 3000 RPM.

Just wanna say after I did my 6" mod I love it! Sounds good and gets lots more air. Noticed a little more power and no difference to gas.
