    I want a cold air intake for my 2007 4.0l TRD Sport PreRunner. Which would give me the best power, most reliability and best sound with dual exhaust???

    Hello. Please use the search function for more info.

    Bottom line is stock is cold air. AFE Stage 2 SI/Old Style TRD is the best that pulls from the stock location and URD is the best for power but you have to cut to make it work. Of course these are all high RPM gains and will not help you when driving normal.

    Seriously, I just woke up, so bear with me,but wouldn't that actually inhibit air flow since its not under its own power? Who actually looks at that ad and is like 'omfg a supercharger for a percent of the price that I canz install myself! Booya!'.

    Sad to say but plenty of people fall for this crap just like the Tornado fuel saver and anything else that promises power and/or better MPGs. It is ignorance.
