    I'm new to this forum and recently got a 2002 double cab tacoma, v6 4wd. I was wondering if a cold air intake would actually help with performance of the engine or is the stock one just fine? Thanks for the advice

    Welcome!

    Save your money and do the deckplate mod. I did it on my 3rd gen 4Runner and it feels slightly more peppier and it holds a gear longer before downshifting. It also sounds pretty good at WOT. I've heard that some cold air intakes can actually hinder instead of help your performance..just something to think about

    welcome from Central Florida!


    I used to have a CAI on my truck and went back to the stock intake...

    CAI=more noise and dirt in motor. Power gains are negligible, the sound is annoying (IMO, but it was cool when I was 16...lol), and it will actually cause you to lose of MPG's.

    Do the deckplate mod (search on this forum) and run a good dry PAPER filter (OEM is best)

    Filtration>Flow IMO...make your motor last.

    Have fun!
