    I've search all over and can't find what I'm looking for, having trouble finding the right replacement air filter for my CAI.

    I have the TRD CAI that has the silver aluminum top housing with the 6 alen screws on the top. It contains the TRD air filter which is conical in shape. Top width is 4.5 in, bottom width is 7in, length is 7in and most importantly intake opening is 5.5 in.

    I can't for the life of me find a replacement air filter, seems every trd cai filters i find are for the TRD CAI that houses a flat air filter.

    I had heard that the AFE ProDry 21-90044 would work but its dimensions are way off.

    Anyone out there replace a similar filter, thought we could start a thread that had info on replacements, sizes, prices, etc....

    Select the correct AFE stage 2 SI intake with Dry Flo filter for your truck on AFE's site. Then on the lower part of the page there are some accessory option. Select the extra Dry Filter and buy it. The filter is bigger but it fits. I run it but I have noticed more dirt in the intake tube when I run it VS running the TRD filter.

    hmmm, more dirt in the intake tube sounds bad. I'll look at that one.

    Correction on the dimensions

    Intake: 5.5in
    Flange Length: 1in
    Base Diameter of filter: 7.5in
    Top diameter: 4.75in
    Length: 7in

    Well any high flow filter has to let more air in somehow and that means more dirt is going to get in.

    If that is the correct one for the AFE box then it is a tight squeeze but it fits. <-----That's what she said.

    Hey guys,

    I called the dealership for this TRD cone air filter (same as above noted wilsonpj has)and was told they have a "stop sale" on them and that I can clean the filter with a K&N filter cleaning kit.

    Ever heard of this? what's going on here?
