    Hey guys, I recently took a trashy aftermarket cold air intake off my Tacoma and put on an OEM one. The problem I have is this part that I think is called a silencer. The hose going from the engine to the silencer is too small to fit the stock part. Is this some new type of silencer for a different year than my Tacoma? Mine is a 2004 3.4 v6.

    Thanks gentlemen

    It's a "custom" hose.
    Parts "17303B" in the diagram - Link below.

    I'd buy vacuum line adapters and step up the hose sizes.

    The part you are holding in your 1st pic plugs into the rear of the intake tube. Large end into the intake tube. See my second pic.

    The "silencer" is a much larger "box" and fits that large hole in the front of the intake tube. See my first pic.

    On your year, the little hard line you pointed at connects to a small nipple on the large "silencer" box. It is a vent line (not vacuum) from the fuel pressure regulator and serves only to direct fuel from a leaking FPR to the intake as opposed to letting it drip on a hot engine, a fire hazard.
    Many folks delete the big silencer box and replace it with a PVC pipe cap to fill the hole in an effort to free up some under hood space.

    Now see my first pic (1999), notice it does not have the smaller box on the rear, the hose plugs directly into the tube. The box was added in later years. The intake tube from the later years had a larger hole on the rear to accommodate the box. You may or may not have the correct intake tube for your year (bigger hole).

    I would just go with what you got using adapters/reducing bushings etc as mentioned by @TnShooter.
    None of the piping here has anything to do with running/performance.

    Yep that's it. They still have them, not much more than rigging something up. Thanks.
