    I am looking into purchasing an air intake for my Tacoma but I dont know what to buy. Do you guys have any suggestions? Which brand will give me the most horsepower? Best Quality overall?

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Here are some that I looked at online:

    Yeah man do the deck plate mod its way better then the aftermarket intakes. I have the K&N CAI and I wish I did the deck plate mod. If I could sell it and go back to stock I would but I sold my stock air box.

    I did the deckplate mod and dropped a k&n in there. Gotta love that growl with the deckplate.

    Hey guys you got any pics? i'm thinking about changing my air intake but i also don't know what to buy. Is the cone filter from K&N a cold air intake? or is it just a high flow intake?

    I have the deck plate mod with a airraid intake tube, it does the job.

    Also while you are doing the deck plate mod, you might as well get the elbow mod done.
