    This is an interesting topic. I must add to the confusion;

    I went and took my 2 week old Tacoma in to the Toyota Dealership to have a Borla Cat Back installed. Dealer went out of their way to also install a Borla Drop in air filter. Only reason I found out was because the next day I opened the filter box, to take the gasket off of the stock filter, to utilize for my AIRAID that I was about to install.

    Point trying to make is, why would they install a drop in filter into my vehicle that needs to be oiled and is supposed to possibly damage MAF sensor and or void warranty:confused:

    All comments about this or AIRAID being bad for 2nd Gen Tacoma are more than appreciated.

    Thanks...

    First of all if the stealership trys to pull that S#!$ then look at this page, granted it is K&N but the basics do still apply. http://www.knfilters.com/warrantyletter.htm This will give you enough information to fight the man if need be.

    Thats some good shit. I will look around to see if AIRAID backs their product like that. But in the end they are mostly all the same. Just diff set ups an all. What i like best about a CAI is the nice throttle sound and maybe couple ponies at the wheel. What some fail to realize is that the HP gains posted on most advertisements are not w/Intake on bone stock Veh. No way you're getting 15HP at the wheel with just a filter.

    But you got to love the grawl!!!

    i know K&N has one of the best warranty programs out there for CAI and i bet Airaid might too but you would have to contact them. I had a airaid cai and throttle body spacer for my old 99 f 150, and i can say when i had a problem with them not including enough bolts, they were great and responsive about fixing the problem.
