Is this gonna make any difference?

All I did was remove the factory air box so now the air has free flow into the engine. Does anyone know if this will help performance, MPG, or anything along those standards?

The air now will be around 100 + degree's due the the fact it's being pulled from the engine compartment rather than the fender.
I'd keep your airbox on.

I wouldn't run it like that at all. Either buy an intake or run it stock.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Unless your thermometer can read air flow, your wasting your time. Removing the intake tubing gives no benafit to the engine, and it will loose performance.

So by removing the intake tubing makes you smarter than the Toyota engineers who put it there?
