    I have the K&N 77 Series which is the stainless steel piping, which was delivered to me with nicks and scrapes on it,,,no big deal. But i dont think it matters which material you get, some people believe the plastic piping stays cooler, some think it doesnt matter which is me, but it all depends which look you like the best :thumbsup:

    If you look at the dyno results for the metal 77 series vs. the black aircharger (part 63-9026 on the 4cyl) , it seems the aircharger performed better... However mine seems to resonate alot above 3k rpm, it's possible that the metal one may be a bit quieter.

    To navigate, try using the Search in up in the blue menu bar. Easy way to find discussions on anything you're looking for.

    As for CAI - K&N sucks in air from inside the engine compartment so not sure if it really qualifies as such. Toyota makes a real one, as does AFE and URD.

    Oh ya, another recommendation on the Weathertechs. They absolutely rock over any other mat.

    x3 on the Weathertechs.

    Search on this forum works pretty well, allowing you to search within your search results to quickly narrow down postings.

    I don't have a CAI on my truck so no advice to share.

    Welcome to TW! What part of Pittsburgh you in? I'm in Wexford (North Hills)

    As for the floor mat issue, a cheap way to go about "fixing" it is to just cut out a little notch in the mat. Just put your truck neutral, put the pedal to the floor and find out where its hitting the mat. Use a sharpie or something to outline the pedal, and then cut ~1/2" outside of that line.
