    TRD isn't on the list.

    I have the TRD 1st gen and own a TRD 2nd gen. 1st gen is better.

    I use a stock intake and sometimes swap to an AEM brute force open air filter setup with heat shield.

    The both work about the same but the AEM is louder.

    I can't say I've noticed any power gains from mine, but I don't have any noise in the cab until 3000 rpm which is right when I want to hear them anyhow :headbang:

    I don't always want to hear noise. When passing, I just want to pass a car most of the time not rattle my truck and their car to pieces with my intake noise.

    Still does almost nothing on the 4 bnager. Removing the charcoal filter is what does the most on the 4 banger.

    Well, I pulled the trigger on an Afe pro-dry S CAI today. I am thinking about getting it dyno'd just because there's not really any conclusive before/after evidence on here about 2.7's other than people's opinions on whether they work or not. Plus I'd like to know.
