    Hi, I have a 97 Toyota Tacoma 3.4l V6. I am thinking of building a spectre cold air intake for it. Is it worth it, if was what degree elbows should i use, what diameter of the tubing and how/where should I hook the vacuum hoses to the intake. Thanks

    Not worth it.
    Especially the BS in trying to cobble together a DIY from the piece of shit Spectra (Mr Gasket) parts.

    You already have a "cold air intake" on your truck.
    That intake is capable of flowing enough air for an engine much bigger than your 3.4.
