    dont waste your time or $$$ on CAI. the truck already has a true cold air intake by taking in air from under the front fender. those kits relocate the intake to inside the hot engine bay.

    just do the deck plate mod and a good drop in filter.

    Pretty much. Doesn't suck as much hot air either, at least while moving. At idle the temps can get high, but that's gonna happen even with true CAIs.

    Dont buy a cai they do nothing for a Tacoma (non boosted) other then sound good. They most hp gains for an intake has been with the deckplate mod 5-8hp I think.

    Any of you guys have 2.4Ls? I have done the deck plate mod and tinkered with my intake for smoother air flow but still hardly anything. I felt more gain with an open cone filter. Atleast my truck didn't bog down to 65 when going up a grade.


    Any other cheapy mods with stock air boxs lol.

    i run the stock paper filters. ...they do a much better job of filtering than the high-flow reusables.

    the small, almost imperceptible hp gains you'll get from a hi-flow filter come at the cost of letting more dirt in the engine.

    i guess it just depends on how long you plan on keeing your truck.

    This is because you can literally see the dirt on white paper as opposed to dark blue or red filter media with oil on it. :D

    There are tons of threads on the deckplate mod already. Under search just type in deckplate and you'll get plenty of results. I just did this mod to my 2.7 liter tacoma and noticed a little throttle response, which was nice.

    Actually, I have sampled my oil after running the reuseable oiled filters, and the OEM filter does in fact filter MUCH better. I will never run a K&N on any truck or vehicle I plan to keep for a long time.
