    Hello, just wanted to show you my new AFE CAI, installed it myself :) it wasn't that hard though. What do you guys think?

    I love it!! I recommend it 100%, great deep sound. Couldn't be happier with it.

    This is what I got for $330 free shipping, not bad for me :)

    Yeah I did, I went on the fwy just after installing it and did 110 miles really quick. If I knew how to post videos I would post the video of it.

    the aFe Stage 2 Si intake was very well designed. They designed the original TRD intake.

    Great call!! :thumbsup:

    No smog until the vehicle is 5 years old. When you go for a smog you will have to remove it but it's easy enough to swap it.

    Nice! I almost went with afe before I bought my trd! I wish the trd came with a dry filter as well. Since afe designed the trd intake, would I be able to use the afe cleaning kit with my trd filter?

    I don't see why not. The oil that came with the restoring kit is kinda blue, if I'm correct the TRD filter is red, isn't it?
