    Guess I'm not understanding the question, do you mean adding an additional airbox or expanding the stock one for more air induction ? Or are you talking about an extention of air duct like a snorkel ?...:confused::confused:

    well it's something that the guy who had it before me did, but it wasn't connected completely. I have a 3" dryer duct i guess it is, from the side port on the air box, and that duct runs down the front right fender to a hole cut in the side of the cab right in front of the door that goes into the cab. It doesn't connect to anything inside the cab, but the hole is right next to the blower motor housing. It coincides with the deck plate mod, I guess if its really dusty out you can but the plate in and just run air out of the cab. I shoulda taken a picture of it before I put the fender back on

    A stock tacoma will have tube that comes out of the airbox that goes into the fender area above the wheel. But it doesn't run the whole length of the fender, only a short ways. I want to say it runs about 6" or so. I've heard that tube referred to as the elbow. If you have something that runs further down the fender, almost as far as the radio antenna mount, it is not stock. Might have been for an aftermarket snorkel.

    Yea, I've found that out after some more research, this was already done to my truck, but I made it connect completely from end to end as well as a little prettier.
