    I have a 2003 tacoma prerunner 4x4 3.4L. I have been thinking about buying a cold air intake to try to get better mpg.Do you think it will help mpg and by how much?

    It might even cost you more money down the road buying the intake if it comes with an oiled filter you're computer will throw mass airflow sensor codes+I cracked the housing on my maf putting it into the k&n intake tube because it fit too tight so a $100.00 more bucks later my truck is fine but (deckplate mod all the way for you're own sake).. Good luck

    K&N panel/ snorkel removed Keyless
    or..... remove the factory snorkel located in the fender and install a high air filter. No cutting and very effective.
