    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.

    Stock setup. Inside are two filters. Which is the main filter that gets replaced?

    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!

    I remember when the RX7 guys were having issues with HKS filters. The extreme heat from the engine would cause the foam material to deteriorate and break apart. Not good for anything. I had twin K&Ns in a cold air box without issues.

    Definitely interesting, but hard to put the filtration in context since a stock filter was not included there, just in the HP numbers.
