    I would go with AEM their the best for CAI. The TRD's CAI are Short ram intake s and will do about the same but u want the fresh air going into the engine. It is a lot better for your engine. But if your gonna do some off roading I would go with the Short rams. but just my 02 good luck.

    Confused...what did you mean...the air going into the engine as opposed to going where?


    Props here for the TRD CAI...

    AFE make a sweet set up, love mine. Went together easy and looks great, pics in my photos section. Pulls air from the fender like the original and even has a mini scoop on the bottom to grab extra air if needed. No complaints here - would buy another in a heartbeat.

    Honestly, all you're going to get here is opinions from others that already bought one of the choices. And I'l bet ya they're all claiming the best. Go figure. Until a side-by-side test on a dyno is done, ymmv om performance.

    TRD or aFe are the best designed.

    The URD and volant both have very bad MAF accuracy, so I would stay away from those.

    URD - possible sucking of water
    Volante - bad reviews

    AFE / TRD - same part and best to get. IMHO

    I run AFE and LOVE IT..
