This is an interesting topic. I must add to the confusion;
I went and took my 2 week old Tacoma in to the Toyota Dealership to have a Borla Cat Back installed. Dealer went out of their way to also install a Borla Drop in air filter. Only reason I found out was because the next day I opened the filter box, to take the gasket off of the stock filter, to utilize for my AIRAID that I was about to install.
Point trying to make is, why would they install a drop in filter into my vehicle that needs to be oiled and is supposed to possibly damage MAF sensor and or void warranty
All comments about this or AIRAID being bad for 2nd Gen Tacoma are more than appreciated.
