    I was looking into buying a cold air intake for my 08 taco but need some help deciding. I was going to choose between a K@N or an AFE. Im looking for a little Hp gain but would like some advice from people who have one. Also i was wondering what would give me the most bang for my buck. any suggestions would help :)

    CAI's are pointless for gains...your engine can only take in so much air at once because of the throttle body...Imagine a straw with a small bowl attached then you take the small bowl off and attach a big bowl...it doesn't matter cause the straw can only fit so much at a time...make sense??
