    Recently purchased an '06 DC SR5 and came complete with a TRD intake and TRD cat back exhaust. My question is do I need to oil the filter for the intake? I do a fair bit of driving on dirty/dusty roads. Have also heard of guys having issues with MAF sensors using oiled filters like K&N and just wondering if this is a concern with the TRD. Thanks.

    Personally, since you bought the truck with the existing CAI, I'd get an AEM Dryflow or AFE ProDry S cone filter and replace the TRD one (Yes, the TRD is oiled).

    yeah....those need to be cleaned/reoiled periodically. you can probably buy an afe pro dry s filter to fit onto the trd intake though.......better flow than an oiled filter, all you do is clean and dry it, no oiling required. then, you'll have no worries about fouling out the maf sensor.:)

    From what I've read the TRD is an oiled filter manufatured by AFE for Toyota. You might check their web sight if your instructions didn't get passed down.
    I'm sure it would be similar to any oiled filter using a recharge kit to clean.
    Spray on the cleaner allow to set 10 min., rinse with tap water from clean to dirty side out, allow to dry completely naturally, and re-oil where the pleats are covered but on overly coated. This is how K&N recommends cleaning theirs.
    As above replacing with a dry type would ease all of your worries.

    ^Yeah, you SHOULDN'T have a problem with an oiled filter if you do it properly but when it comes to air filters, I'm anti-oil. IMO, it's old technology and new vehicles have too many sensors and other electronics that you can mess up so I just feel like, why take the chance? I also believe a K&N destroyed my MAF sensor in my '05 Altima 3.5SE, btw. No proof and I did never even oiled it myself but I feel that it did.

    That's a good idea, that intake is flawed and makes the truck run lean.

    Dunno what it's worth, might depend on if the buyer knows it's flawed or not.

    That other one is made by AFE and works fine but it's stupid loud around 2500rpm and above. So be ready for it .. it sounds like a rabid squirrel with tourettes and a sledge hammer has been up for 3 days doing lines of meth in your glovebox and is losing his shit.

    I kid you not

    Not a clue.
    As someone who knows it's flawed, I wouldn't pay a dime.

    Check the buy/sell section and see what they have been going for

    Yes and no

    Toyota and trd do not MAKE performance intakes. They pay real intake manufacturers to make them. You can buy one from AFE which has an aluminum cover and is super loud but runs fine, it's not CARB legal tho. This company used to make intakes for Toyota and stamp them "trd" for a few years.

    U can also buy the "TRD" one that's all plastic and black/red and uses a panel filter, but it's made by aem/k&n and makes the truck run lean.

    Those are the closest to "trd" ur gunna get.

    That said, no intake on the market will draw any temps below ambient air temperature... And your STOCK intake does just that around 45/55 mph

    You have posted this comment several times. On what do you base this assertion?

    Years of comments on here, comments on xru, gadget testing and developing a new map to fix it, comments on YouTube and just now a simple google search.

    K&n/aem rushed the job to win the contract after the afe made "trd" intake made years before was found to not be CARB legal. Somehow k&n/aem used the wrong size tubing and it causes the maf sensor to read incorrectly.


    It's actually nothing new
