    Does anyone know what type of Cold Air Intakes are legal in Pennsylvania? I have looked at a few and they all said that they were not legal in PA. Thanks!

    The only legal cold air intakes are stock and the new TRD which isn't very good. That is it.

    K&N and AEM both came up as illegal in PA. If I put one on will I fail inspection? Are shops not allowed to put them on at all?

    amusing that the TRD one is the only legal CAI that is legal and it appears to be on the more expensive side.

    ...wow...thats messed up. News to me. There are weird laws in PA...Like the fact its illegal to own a hedgehog (long a$$ story, short version is the dude in charge of game and wildlife got in a fight with a PA hedgehog breeder -when it was still legal to buy hedgehogs that were bread in PA- and basically said hedgehogs are now illegal and they went on this witch hunt to kill any hedgehogs they could find...thats where some of our tax dollars go...) Also, its apparently illegal to have more than one set of fog/auxilary lights on the front of your vehical, and if you do have them...they have to be 20 inches apart and covered (if auxilary). That law isnt really enforced in the bondocks, but I'm told people get stoped for it in like Pittsburg and Philli.

    Nope. It may say pending but they are defiantly not 50 state legal since they remove the carbon filter.

    Ok but it does not have the 07 Taco listed as a compatible air intake. Am I possibly missing something?

    Shops put on whatever you tell them too. Really though you don't need a shop to do an intake install. All you need is simple tools and the ability to read. Also you can always pull the intake off when inspection comes along. AEM and K&N are not cold air anyway.

    05 and up are all the same.

    Some 77 Series Air Intakes are not legal for use in California and other states adopting California emission standards while others are CARB exempt and 50 state legal. Check the K&N catalog or website vehicle parts search for specific CARB status.

    I find that very interesting because the emissions laws are so inconsistent here, probably because it is based on per capita. For instance, there is no emission testing in my county. The county to the left and right of me have it though, which only consists of having the gas cap checked.

    back to the "57" series as i stated, which are "CARB exempt, street legal in all 50 US states". Appears the 07 and other Tacoma models do not have a "57" series intake available. The intake available is a 63 series (not CARB exempt). I should have looked at my catalog first.

    FYI for anyone still looking at this topic: I just got off the phone with K&N and the 57 series is still pending for CA. All of the 63 series numbers are also pending and, once approved by the state, they will revert to the 57 or 77 series.

    Yeah they have been pending since 2005 because they won't pass. Anytime you remove a piece of smog equipment it is a fail. The junk K&N intake removes the secondary filter so automatic fail. K&N puts pending because they want you to think that one day it will pass when it really won't.
