    I have a 2006 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner V6 TRD O.R. package.

    Do you suggest the K&N 63 Series AirCharger High-Flow Intake Kit? What are all of my benefits and downfalls of installing this? Need suggestions...

    I can sell you mine. I am going to be installing a snorkel, and it's not compatible with FIPK.

    Did you have any problems with the oil or sensors or anything?

    No problems at all. I've had this installed on my truck since I bought it new 3/14/2010, I put 80k miles on it, found a small, insignificant defect in the mesh of the filter when I was cleaning. So KN sent a new filter. So 85k on the assembly, 5k on the newer filter. I cleaned the MAF when I would clean the filter, clean the TB every 30k, and no problems to report.

    Its gunna draw hotter air than stock I assume, k&n filter bad....high flow but bad filtering (u can't have both sadly).

    Be very very careful wit oiling.....I've had 3 or 4 maf issues on past vehicles.......clean ur maf sensor regularly if u go this route.

    Only draws warmer air when sitting at idle. Once the vehicle is moving, the IAT drops to ambient. Over oiling will foul sensors and and put extra gunk on the TB.

    That's impressive....where does the cool air come in?
    Through the grill, past the condensor, radiator, trans cooler?

    What di u measure with?

    I've had mine very lightly oiled on a maxima and celica....both fouled the maf.....comically I seen a friend buy a used corolla and drove it for a year with no issues, then she had to have the maf cleaned....the car was only 4yrs ol at most.....the prior owner put an exhaust on it, rims, and the usual rice stickers...I always assumed he ran a K&N....funny how it got gummed up even though she only used factory filters (which filter much better and I bet allow enough flow to feed the lil 4 cylinder).

    I would imagine the cooler than engine bay air, comes in through the same hole as the stock intake draws air from, and any where else. I measured using the IAT sensor through my OBD2 hook up. The temp drop was about 15*f from idle to moving. Ambient at the time was 45*f. Though, I have not checked the temp on a stock intake, I surely will once I remove the FIPK and re install my stock, then again when I install the snorkel. When I first read all of the debated Hot air intake vs stock, I had to find out for my self, so I did. Though there may be other factors involved, I will see if I can cover them all when I do my little road test. But I agree that an oiled filter will cause build up, and I took that in to account, and cleaned the sensitive parts that would be affected.
