    Has anyone tried out the K&N cold air intake kit, part number 63-9037 for a 2012-2013 Tacoma? I conducted a search and zero results showed up. Just wondering if anyone saw better fuel economy/performance... Real world results not factory K&N claimed results.

    Currently running a K&N replacement filter with improved gains in regards to slight fuel milage and throttle response. Just wondering if a complete kit would improve even further.

    the full kit will make your truck louder, thats about it. just search "K&N cold air intake" there are dozens of threads on it. lots love it, lots hate it. They are not a cold air intake as they draw air from the engine bay. The factory set up is actualy a cold air intake as it draws its air from the fender well.

    noise is the only upgrade i think the urd intake might be your best bet for some performance if any

    I just ordered one, I had one on my old car and loved it. As far as performance I am expecting very little, I know they are more for sound. Also, it’s not a cold air intake, it’s a performance intake, everyone just calls them CAIs although almost non of them are. The basic idea is to reduce air restriction and pumping loss, so your truck puts more power to the wheels, and less pulling air. It’s not even that it gives it more air (this would actually make your truck run lean) it just doesn’t waste as much energy getting that air. Similar to upgrading exhaust= less energy pushing air through the pipe and the byproduct is more noise because you have less baffles to reduce sound and restrict airflow, and a gain of a few HP. I’ll install it this weekend and see how it goes. I’ll post back with my input and maybe a sound clip if I can figure that out... Also, regarding the TRD, my thoughts from looking at it are that it’s a waste of money, and you’re just paying for a logo. The design looks exactly the same, and I believe it still meets California emissions standards, this K&N does not. I’m curious if it even changes the sound of the truck... anyone ever seen one on a truck??

    Are you removing a TRD intake or K&N? What is the reason for removing it? I already ordered mine, and prefer new, but thanks!

    Removing K&N. I want to add a snorkel, and the open style of the box defeats the purpose of the snorkel. Also want to free up some room for a auxillary battery on the P/S.
