    Pretty much every "intake" for tacomas are SRI. A true cold air intake will go behind the bumper, grill, anywhere outside of the engine bay.

    Does anyone on here have the URD True Cold Air Intake. I was looking at it online yesterday and it actually seems like pretty good option for a true cold airtake.

    (http://www.urdusa.com/product_info.php?products_id=1260518504&osCsid=alh85bfn4h92etjic455nqcun7)

    Are the expensive MAF Sensor Calibrator and Innovate LM-2 nessacary. I see that what the MAF senseor does, but what is the Innovate LM-2 for? I'm not too familar with either option, but be good to know if people on here would recommend them.

    pretty sure the Innovate is a wideband... You dont need one for a intake.
