    I know its cheap, and not anything like the TRD CAI but since Im not a believer in them for performance in the design,however i do like the sound if its not too overwhelming like exhausts.
    Just curious if anyone has had any experience with the cheaper ones.
    Thanks

    I have the kool vue cold air intake install was fairly easy worst part was taking out the stock bolts but if you go with the kool vue watch the YouTube video about the k&n one it's the same thing sounds great and I gotta say I feel like I have more power in my taco now

    I got the most gains out of my Placebo Performance. Way more noticeable power than my K&N cold air.

    I swapped my AFE for a Kool Vue on my Frontier. Why? It looked cooler and made more noise. Upgrade the filter and a filter wrap and you're good as gold. A intake is a intake in my eyes. Pipe with a filter. Granted you will have cooler temps with a plastic tube, however, this is a tacoma, not NASCAR. FWIW.

    FYI, stock intake is a CAI.... crusing at 60mph your intake temps will be 2-3*F above ambient at most.... like ever other CAI.
