    So with the URD calibrator, I could program it to draw more air? Could this also be done with the stock intake but new filter and secondary filter removed?

    I honestly feel more power at all load levels with the maf cal compared to before. The only thing that really distinguishes itself at WOT, is that my intake will stop resonating since its getting the extra fuel it needs.

    When you look at the fuel map provided by gadget in the tuning software, you can clearly see that he has enriched the ratio way before you even reach full throttle. Pretty cool to see how your engine reacts to your right foot when you have it hooked up to your computer...

    Don't do it for gains.....sound and a reusable filter makes it worth it (used for a good price atleast)!

    If it is a vibrant performance air filter yes. Lol. A lot of the nicer brands have really good filtration though. So chances are, you aren't losing much, if any.

    I am sure there are filtration tests out there. I know that SouthWest Research has done quite a few.

    More air means less filtration but I'm sure its not a big deal as long as its not generic walmart filters!

    I'm agreeing with that! The whole point of getting a CAI is noise and less filtration is the trade off....can't beat stock that's well known!

    What's the item number for this filter if installing in a 2011 4.0L? Summit Racing's website is very vague in the fitment description. Thanks.

    I just bought a TRD air filter. Which side of the filter assembly gets the new filter? The left with the accordian tubing, or the right above the engine? Thanks. Also, are any companies making a service manual for the 2nd Gen Tacomas?

    Not exactly sure what your question is, stock CAI? There is only once place to put the filter for the stock CAI.

    Oh, I guess your seeing the charcoal filter, that doesn't come out. Well it can, but not what you want to change. Its sort of a grayish color. The one yo want to change is the one closest to the "accordian" intake tubing, has a gasket all the way around it and easily comes out.

    On another vehicle I had I had put a AirRaid CAI and throttle body spacer. I didn't notice any mpg increase but the sound was amazing whenever I punched the gas. Over in Houston alot of imports meet up at a place called Planet Zero, and a couple times when I was there some if of the guys actually thought I had a turbo because of the sound the CAI and the body spacer would make! It would make a hissing sound. Like I said. No mpg increase but the sound was great with my Aftermarket exhaust. Cheers!
