    I just bought my truck about a month ago 2011 off road package dual cab tacoma.

    Been Looking at my first mod being a cold air intake.

    I have seen a lot of people discuss the K&N cold air intake, but I was wondering if there are any other cold air intakes that work better or are worth looking at for the tacoma? I am looking mainly to to try and improve my gas mileage to start so I am also looking at putting in a dry air filter such as the AFE pro dry S air filter if I can get one for the 2011 tacoma, as well as possibly a scanguage. My truck is my main vehicle for daily driving so trying to figured the best cold air intake to help improve my gas mileage. Yes I know this may a be a noob question but I am still trying to learn everything on the fly since this is my first truck. Also is there anything else I have missed on helping to improve gas mileage? I know about the deck plate mod, but I don't know anyone who has ever done it and I am little afraid to do it and screw up my warranty.

    well iam sure everyone on here is trying to get the best mpg's on thier ride but i think for the most part there arent any real mods that will get you a huge mpg improvement. air intake will if lucky get you 1 to 2 miles more.. manly live everyone says drive like their is an egg under your peddle.. if you feel a jerke or whip when you accelerate at a stop your pressing it to hard ease up on take off.... thats pretty much it haha

    K&N is not a CAI. AFE Stage 2 SI is good, Volant is good if you get the URD Maf calibrator with it, URD CAI is good if you don't offroad and the old style TRD is good. In the end the stock intake is cold air and aftermarket intakes won't make a noticeable MPG or power change so save your money.
