    Just finished installing the 2010 TRD CAI. It is not as loud as I thought it would be, but I can feel the pedal response for sure. Does anyone know if it gets the same 15 HP and 25 FT-LBS of torque as the previous TRD CAI model?

    When I was shopping for a CAI, I read this under the product listing [All testing done to stringent Toyota standards. Peak to Peak Power Gain HP +11HP @ 4,850rpm; Torque +19.0 ft-lbs @ 3,600rpm - - - Largest Power Gain HP +15HP @ 3,150 rpm; Torque +25 ft-lbs @ 3,150 rpm As tested on 06MY Tacoma.]

    Under ideal circumstances with a tune and probably other parts (headers, exhaust, MAF cal, etc) then maybe. Even then, these are not numbers at the tires...

    At best, you'll get < 5hp / 5#ft from an intake...more likely, you'll get nothing at all but a nice sound and slightly faster throttle response.

    Im just not sold on the TRD intake, it still sucks air through the fender like the stock set up.. I'll just stick with my URD.

    Although the TRD intake is a nice intake. No intake will give you anymore then 2-3hp (unless you have F/I) on 2nd gen Tacomas. It sounds nice and has better throttle response and maybe 2-3 hp gain. ;)

    Yes, you have to cut the radiator support in order to install the URD TCAI. ;)

    That is a fact. The whole cold air intake thing is a joke. You are still sucking air from the same spot. The stock air box is pulling air that is only 1-3 degrees above the outside air. How much better do you expect to get?


    The only things a CAI will do is lighten your pocket.

    Hack up your truck for an intake? Wow... no thanks. Thats now Frame Damage!

    I have heard the new 2010 TRD CAI is having issues with maintaining a balanced air fuel ratio as per Gadget on XR Underground after he ran dynos of Stock vs AFE Si2 (OG TRD Intake) and the New TRD intake.

    http://www.xr-underground.com/forum/showthread.php?t=35406

    After reading the thread, I got an old TRD and I live in CA... the new Carb was so enticing, but not at the expense of leaning out my engine.

    Yeah umm the frame is under the truck, not in the engine compartment. It's interesting how people want to go around modding their engine components but yet they don't even have the slightest clue what any of this stuff is :rolleyes:

    The radiator support is in no way related to the frame. It can be unbolted and removed.

    I like it, other than the cutting and the 25% blockage of your radiator. :cool:
