    First Name:
    1999 Toyota Tacoma TRD
    Eibach coilover with bilstein shock, Dakar Old Man Emu leafs with 5125 billies. Total Chaos uniball upper control arms. AFe cold air intake. Trail-gear stinger, rear tube bumper and slider.Debadged, chrome demolished.
    So I ordered my intake about 3-4 weeks ago, everyday hoping and waiting till it showed up. When it finally showed up at work I noticed that its for a 2.7L. I had already taken out the old intake and didn't want to put it back in. So I used the stock intake tunnel and attached the Afe filter to the stock airbox, with trimming and cutting I got it to bolt up so I didn't have to mess with the air sensor. The kit came with everything, for a 2.7! The shield around the filter is a little taller and the hood pops up in the corner, but its held down. Instead of sending the 2.7L intake back, I mocked it up in the truck, rigged it up and let it be until I get the new one, Im going to end up selling the 2.7L Afe intake, when I get the 3.4L intake. A question I had was that the stock air box has a small tunnel going into the fender well, should I take that out for even more air flying through the holes?For the time being The truck feels like it just got a tune up, running great, and noticed a little backfire when revving it up and letting off(sounds cool though). This is the only performance part on it right now.
