    I cannot seem to find a California legal air intake for my 2011 Tacoma, other than the OE model.

    Anyone know any different?

    I was told by Airaid that the 2011 model they make isn't legal yet because of paperwork that approves a little sticker.

    So the HP gains and fuel economy gains are not true?

    When I lifted my 2008 and had 33" tires, my average tank of gas went from 320 miles per tank to 280.

    When I installed the Airaid intake, I was back at 320. I am a numbers guy and would of been very unhappy without regaining the fuel economy.

    I can appreciate your opinion, but how can you quantify it?

    kind of a bad investment, but people still seem to get them. (like myself)
