    You already have a Cold Air Intake from the factory. Don't waste you're money on a noise maker. That will be the only gains you make.

    I understand that but various reviews of the add on intakes show slight improvement with throttle response, mpg gain, as well as sound quality. Who doesn't like that? especially for a mere 200-250$? Cheap upgrade IMO

    You will not get ANYTHING other than sound. All advertisements vary between "clever marketing" and outright lies. Get it for the sound if that's what you want. If you want any sort of performance, don't waste your money.

    Awesome, interested to hear the results. Even if just for sound alone...cheaper than a whole new exhaust

    The reviews I've read vary, but all have said better throttle response

    Perfectly said but whatever people want to waste money on, it is what it is.

    I put this one on my '17 about 9 months ago:

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01IB1HH46/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Install took less than an hour, very straight forward. Nice clean install, no issues. I won't even begin to say if there's any performance improvement, but personally, I'm very pleased with it. I also had one on my '15 that I enjoyed as well.

    You will definitely notice the new sound though when you mash the pedal ha...

    Be careful with oiled filters. They can coat Mass Air Flow elements and foul up air/fuel ratios.

    Would be nice if someone just came up with a replacement pipe from the stock filter box to the throttle body that eliminated the resonator so we could get the louder intake sound without replacing the entire intake. just my $.02

    I would like to see dyno results from an independent shop... The TRD intake is insanely over priced. There's basically no difference over the stock set-up. But, too each their own.

    I decided to get one, not for performance but to keep shit out of my airbox. Once I went 35's I had to pull the liners so everything was getting scooped up in the airbox. So I did this
