    So I'm looking at jumping on this TRD CAI group buy that ends in a couple days but reading a couple of reviews, I'm not sure exactly what the product entails. I have a TRD Air Filter on my 09 and am wondering if the CAI already has a filter build in that would take the place of the TRD Air Filter I have now......or will they work together. A couple of reviews on the forums say a different things.......I'll keep searching for answers, just wondering if anyone could help me out. Thanks guys

    The intake in the group buy isn't as goos as the old style intake. You may see 1 or 2hp on the top end.
