x2 man if you searched you'd find what is the most recommended. personally id get a trd, actually im looking at getting one now. afe would be my next pick then k&n. if you get a trd id consider getting an afe pro dry s filter to drop in it so you dont have to oil the trd filter.

well like mike said, k&n has an open box design, so it is going to be pulling hotter air from the engine bay. the stock air filter and box design is actually a cold air intake in itself. it is a closed box design and pulls cooler air from the passenger front fender well however the tube design breaks up the engine noise and make the air a little more hard to get in the engine.

the trd intake is made by Toyota Racing Development. hence id say they have better blueprints than k&n. afe is almost identical to the trd. if you want an intake that you truly get the most out of, look into the urd intake. you have to do some cutting though...

Stock is cold air. I agree with what others have said. Get a boxed intake so you don't suck in hot air. I got a TRD for a great price and I love it. Also don't expect much of a gain with just an intake.

I paid 185 used from a member on here. The TRD is like the AFE. It is a full box. The only difference between the two is that the AFE has a opening on the front that can pull in hot air.

i dont know where you were reading that, any one that recommends the k&n doesnt have proof to back up what they are saying, trd or afe is what you want.

I think K&N filters are good. I don't like the design of their intakes though. I had one on my Ranger and when I'd sit in traffic you can feel the loss of power as all that hot air was sucked in by the engine. I think everyone always says K&N is because they where like one of the first companies to start making intakes.

TRD worked for me!

I got the CAI and catback exhaust from TRD. Can't tell you how it compares to others, but the difference was immediately noticable (amazing how much power they engineer 'out' to provide a quite engine) and I noticed a slight improvement on gas miles on the highway (I tend to be the first off the line in city traffic

So my vote would be TRD; it works, it looks cool, doesn't void your warranty, and if I hadn't been drunk, it would have taken me 20 minutes to install.

Your warranty can only be voided if the aftermarket parts cause oem parts to fail. Don't believe the dealer.

The TRD intake and CAI is the same thing. CAI is short for cold air intake.

Also there are 2 TRD intakes now. The newer smog legal intake but it looks like crap and the older box intake that is not smog legal.
