    Im in a bind between the TRD CAI and the AFE CAI SI.. I found a used TRD CAI for 290 vs a AFE CAI SI for 296 new... Which one do you guys think is better..? I know AFE makes the TRD filter.. But does name brand matter at this point..?

    That link does help.. But I didnt see this question asked.. I was told that the TRD CAI gives you a 3-4 hp boost, does the AFE give the same..?

    X3. The TRD is made by AFE. They have about the same 3 hp gain.

    Only 3 hp?!?!? What's the point of that? I guess the performance drop in filters don't do anything at all :(

    When combined with other performance parts the gain will be greater. What gain did you expect with just an intake?
