Yes the True Flow XDI is a cold air intake system. It takes the coldest air available directly to the throttle body with the least disrumption of air flow. Yes the tube is aluminum, not cheap plastic, which may tend to warm the air slightly. But consider how many mili-seconds that air is going to remain in the tube before it reaches the TB....boom, it's in. As a matter of fact, the original factory air box could be considered a CAI due to it's design and where it takes the air from. It's main flaw is the restriction it puts on the air flow before it enters the TB. It's really quite simple.

from my understanding of a cold air intake it takes air from the outside of a vehical via the hole in the fender and feeds it into motor.... thats why a true cold air intake cannot take any air from the inside of the engine compartment.... if you even seal a snorcal(cant spell) to an intake so only air from the outside can come in it is a cold air intake..............cold air cant come from warm engine air or air that comes by the radiator which is designed to disipate heat into the air and unless you move the radiator or made your vehical ram air i dont see that its realy cold air it might be called cold air but are you compairing the temp of the air to the temp of the motor cuz thats realy not that hard to acheive


maby Im wrong but thats what i define as a true cold air intake... look at all the real cold air intakes you all have there all sealed from the air inside you engine and thats why your not supposed to go threw puddles with a real cold air intakes cuz it takes the air from the inside of your fender which sprays water into the box but because of good design your filter is not located on the bottom of this box so it will not suck in the water that gets in.......


i guess i said what i had to say lol.

sorry just looked... Trueflow calls it a cold air intake so i guess im wrong sorry and the above is my defeniton of a cold air intake cuz i spent some time on that and dont want to erase it even though im wrong... but i still believe what i believe (and yess i realy cant spell)

That's the ticket CT, go with what you know. You are basically right about most of it. Actually none of the CAI's, out there really utilize true "COLD" air. They just utilize the coolest air possible. The TF XDI does draw it's air from the hole in the fender well, even though it's not directly attatched there. Hey it's all good man, and we don't even care if you can't spell, you are family.

I have my True Flow XDI for sale at the moment. I want to add something else to my truck and need the money. If it does not sell on Ebay then I am going to do a mod to it.
After having the TF for a little while I took the filter off one day and blew through it (I know strange, but wanted to see air flow) and then through the OEM filter. The TF filter seems very restrictive as you can barley feal any air on the other side. So I am going to put a cone style Green filter (like a K&N) in place of the TF filter. Green filters oils are not supposed to do damage to the MAF meter like I have heard K&Ns do. I think the cotton filter would flow better than foam. But the down side is the protection, TF foam will catch more than the cotton.
If this works and I notice a difference then I will post the mod/change on the site.

Sorry to bump such an old thread but I need some info. I may be able to pick up one of these for cheap. My problem is they have since gone out of business and you can no longer buy the cleaning kit and oil anymore. From what I have read some say you can use kits for dirtbikes as the filters are the same basic foam type. It's a long shot but just wondering if anyone is still running this intake and what they are using.

I used a TruFlow drop-in on my last truck, and yes you can use an oil made for a foam air filter. My understanding, maybe it's marketting, not sure, is that the oiled cotton gauze filter oil (K&N), is a bit different then the foam oil.

The filter looks like a dirt bike "Uni-filter" or "No toil" filter. I would just buy their cleaning solution, should work out fine.
