Ok fella's. I'm a huge newby on these Taco's. I was always a Chevy man. After my dad got an '04 and gave it hell, I decided to get one of my own.
I have a 2009 Tacoma. Bought it new. I've had it for a year now and I'm gettin' the mod itch. First two things I want to do is get an exhaust, which I've pretty much settled on but next, I want a CAI. I have settled on a couple but I had two questions: 1. Is volant a good choice and 2. How in the hell do these things fit. The intake I have doesn't look like it would match up w/ the intakes I've seen online. There is a tube going into the passenger side fender which connects to the air filter attached to the engine. This thing is atleast 11 inches wide. What's that all about? How would I replace that? I believe my truck has a stock intake system in it but not a true CAI. What's the deal with this? Suggestions, comments, etc. are welcomed and appreciated! Sorry for the long post but I'm confused. Like I said, never worked on a Toyota motor of any kind!
