    ~Me again!

    Okay, I had just bought my 06, TRD Off Road, 2WD taco. Found a guy on Craigslist selling a BORLA filter in great condition. I bought it. Seemed to be the right size, by the shape.

    ....but the filter is like 1.5 inches too short for my air box! (and my existing standard filter)

    The guy claims it came standard with his "TEXAS EDITION" 06 taco. Same v-6 engine (isn't it?) Why the different sized filter?

    Had just bought the K&N filter cleaning/oiling kit, before putting it in.

    Now I'm stuck with it.. unless one of you guys want to buy it!

    But the question is.. is there actually different air box sizes from the factory?

    Yes there all the same V6 1GRFE. And are you trying to install this on a factory air box or aftermarket?

    He must have pulled a quick one on me, as it should be the right size!
