    I have a 2008 reg cab Tacoma,2.7L 4 cyl. and I am looking for some suggestions on a quality, bolt on CAI that won't break the bank. I have seen the Volant and a KnN series63-9026. I would appreciate any thoughts on those two or any others that would be worth mentioning.
    Thanks,

    -Tom

    Just a head's up before any of the meaner people see this:

    You're stock intake is already cold air, as it pull's from the fender...

    There are maaaaaaannnyyy arguments on this site about the pro's and con's of aftermarket intakes. The general consensus is that there are really no gains other than sounding awesome and maybe a little extra horsepower from your butt dyno :D

    Use the search function as much as possible, this site has been around for a looooong time and pretty much anything you can think of to do with/to your truck, has been thought of and posted up on here!

    Good luck with your search, and Welcome to Tacoma World!
