    Yes please post part #s for both pieces as I am looking at making this one of my next mods and I had heard +s and -s of the oil based filters (mainly the dirt thing). So if someone has a way to improve the performance of my Taco even more... let me at it :)

    Not really knowing what motor you have by your info.?
    If you haven't done anything yet you have options.
    The true CAI's that replace everything from the thottle body out aren't cheap. Anywhere from $250 and up. Some at this price are sucking air from the engine compartment as well. Limited gain if any.
    The Toyota airbox setup isn't really that bad and does suck the air from outside the engine compartment through the fender well area. A drop in replacement oil free OEM type filter would offer better results than some of the high dollar ones for that reason for $45. If you still wanted more power and are slightly mech. inclined there is the deck plate mod. that some on here recommend.
    Personally the only reason I go with an aftermarket drop in is maybe slightly more responsiveness and the fact that they are cleanable and reuseable and usually pay for themselves within 3 factory type air filter replacements.

    My apologies. I do have the V-6 and have done nothing to anything (yet - getting the exhaust done tomorrow - Flowmaster 40). So I was mainly trying to figure out if it would be better to just change the drop in filter and see what I get (as I am not mechanically inclined enough to want to monkey with cutting holes in anything) or pay to have a complete intake system put in. Just trying to get a guage on if I will see better results one way over another and if the "full" intake is worth the extra $$$$ (and I would probably want to stay away from the oiled filters )

    honestly, with the actual deck plate mod being dyno'd and the cost of the deckplate versus the cost of an intake.........do the deckplate mod and get and good drop in filter, honestly probably the best bang for your buck there. and you'll see results!

    I ran the K&N drop in on my '89 and '99 and never had any trouble with the oil issues. I think most of that is simply over oiling when cleaning. On the '99 I actually drilled several .5" holes in the front of the air box between the honycombs towards the grill and never had any issues including water from driving in rain. I went with the oil free this time because of ease of cleaning, it is supposed to filter better, and eventual cost savings which would apply either way you choose to go.
    Also welcome to TW.

    i had a hard time finding a pro dry s filter for a 08 2.7. i found an AFE filter but it was a pro guard. will it still have the same benefits as a Pro dry s?

    IIRC the Pro Guard will need to be cleaned and re-oiled, but the Pro Dry doesn't need to be re-oiled.

    You might also look at the AEM Dryflow. Also a good non-oiled filter that I've used in the past.

    The part # of my filter that I just put on my K&N CAI system is 21-30018. But everyones system is different the hight might need to be shorter to fit or something else. But I just highly recomend this filter, its awsome!

    You should also consider removing your secondary air filter for best bang for the $$.

    hey thanks. yeah i do plan to do that. i asked at the dearlership and they said that people that did it had problems with the MAF and check engine light. i figured it was just some bullshit response for me to keep it in there.

    Haven't read or heard of any of those problems from removing the secondary filter. Have read that there is more of a noticable performance difference when removing it on the I4 vs. the V6. ;)

    Secondary Air Filter removal. More to come hopefully.
    I have been reading all the hype on AFE and I am convinced. Problem is, is I can't find a friggin link to get one for a 05 4.0L. I have found some links, but there asking 60+bucks for them. Is this the right price? Seems like several of you have got one for cheaper.I know the 2.7s are cheaper but is this the right price for a 4.0L?

    Check the group buy thread and you may get a cut yet. I purchased mine in Jan. for $44 including frt. so yes they are popular and have gone up $$ a bunch. :eek:
