    I know some people might have already asked this but I was wondering what Cold Air Intakes people were running on their 2012+ Tacomas. I want to get one for mine and I'm just confused as to which ones are the best for these trucks.

    Aftermarket CAI is all noise and no go...

    Better off getting an AFE ProDry S filter for your stocker...

    Just stick with the stock setup.

    There is no benefit of changing any of the intake on our trucks unless you are getting a supercharger.

    Utard or anyone else that would know,

    Do you know of any threads explaining why a supercharger should need a CAI? I have a 13 dcsb TRD sport MT on order and I'm having the dealer add the S/C right away. It seems to be the consensus that the OEM CAI is best.

    The stock setup is designed to provide enough air for the engine.

    The supercharger sucks then blows a lot more air than the stock setup can provide. So the CAI is able to provide more air for the super charger.
