AFE makes the TRD CAI for toyota, and that one still uses the stock fender well snorkel and a plastic tube. A lot of the others seem to suck hot air from inside the engine bay and use metal tubes. (metal transfers more heat than plastic)
That said I am not sure which CAI you are looking at, and I do not know if the TRD/AFE intake that I am talking about will work on the 2.7L as I've only seen it on the 4.0L.
Also whatever you choose I would make sure it has a dry type filter with it or that you get a dry type filter for it, ase it seems to me that many people are having a problem with the oiled gause type letting a residue through and coating the MAF sensor.
