    I am still looking at getting a TRD CAI. My question is would it be more bennificial to upgrade my exhaust/header system to get the full benifit of the CAI? If so, which exhaust system is best?...I don't want anything loud or throaty sounding. Something to the effect of the stock sound. :confused:

    Dude,,,

    Not to sound rude but in order to gain intake airflow increase, and xhaust increase you will have to expect change in sound of your ride.

    So,,, stay stock. Tacoma's are awesome off the lot anyway's.

    Stay away from the addiction;:eek:

    The TRD exhaust sounds good. Plus, if you really hammer it, you can hardly hear the exhaust over the CAI.

    If you really want your money's worth, you need to get the MAF calibrator. And pretty much all intakes are going to make it louder when you mash on it.
