    Since I couldn't find any definitive solution and no one could/would offer one. Here is how I did it:

    Follow lemons guide for particulars on general install. I will cover only specifics to the TRD Intake and how I mated the snorkel to it.

    lemons's guide can be found HERE.

    First: Buy you one of THESE in 3.75" to 4". The 4" end will go to the TRD Intake, the 3.75" end will go to the pipe supplied with your snorkel.

    The elbow will go through the intake hole as so, with the 4" end inside the engine bay. I recommend removing your intake for this as I have....

    This is the 3.75" end on the other side waiting for the snorkel pipe:

    When it comes time to piece your pipe and fittings together to connect your snorkel to your intake, you are going to have to either modify the supplied Airflow elbow or purchase a 3.75" diameter pipe.

    I chose to modify the supplied elbow:

    One of the supplied elbows will connect to the snorkel housing and the other end to the hose. You then use your modified elbow or new pipe to connect the hose to the silicone elbow that is connected to your intake: (sorry, dark cell phone image)

    and that's it.

    I have heard some Tacoma owners are into drug smuggling,they drive down too Mexico and then use their snorkeled trucks too come back just off the coast with only the top half of the truck showing and the dope in the back.
