This is really my first posted question as a Tacoma World member! Stoked to be here.
I have a first-gen (2003) 4x4 Tacoma that I just bought, and I'm looking into putting an intake in. After researching, I think I'll go with either a K&N 57-Series (black plastic), or I'll stick with the deckplate mod.
What I'm wondering -- and what will decide this for me -- is how well the K&N intake will stay dry in wet road and splashy (but not underwater) off-road conditions. Is it fairly shielded from splash? I know there is a waterproof cover available for the filter, but does that restrict airflow?
Ideally I'd like to have a better intake setup that I can stick on and leave it as is (no putting the deckplate back in, etc.), but I'm not sure if that is an option.
Thanks for reading,
