    I haven't heard any pros. Just cons, such as they don't do anything. What would be an alternative or a step up that will actually gain results?

    Yea man! I'd like to move faster than my taco did before my tires and lift. That was the goal from the start, but the tires had to come first. I like gettin in the mudd... Why else would you buy a 4x4 unless you're a poser...? I would like to get the taco moving at warp speed.... I don't want to waste $ on trivial shit. I've done it in other hobbies"saltwater aquariums" and spent buku dollars cause I didn't check the pros first or do my research.

    I have had the TRD CAI and I loved it. I sold it to an idiot that paid me more then i got it for. So switched it up and got the RBP air intake kit. It added a few more HP and sounds even sicker. It looks and fits very nice. But I do wish I had the TRD logo still. Just me talking. Take it or leave it.

    I recently found out my truck's previous owner put both an air kit and TBS on the truck. About $450 worth of noise......If I could get the stock parts free I would sell it.

    is it true your truck is so fast from the intake, that it cant even be seen under WOT?

    OP... if it were me.. id be purchasing a CAI for the following reasons if after knowing the pros and cons and seen dyno results:

    1. noise (yay!)
    2. looks cool under the hood
    3. TRD, hell my truck is TRD im going to TRD everything i can
    4. to be able to say that i modded my truck, with a CAI..

    but i think before i spend money on a cai, i would get other things (exhaust, other small mods, lift...)

    So is an exhaust a better investment for boosting power?

    Awesome! I'm ordering now, LOL! I wish, but I can do with slow and slower. The price of a supercharger would make a sweet down payment on a center console boat for spring.... Thx for the advice fellas
