    TRD intake and cat back exhaust. 3rd gen wheels,32” tires,3rd gen struts/springs and shocks. TRD short throw shifter. ‘18 Pro skid plate.
    I put the TRD intake and cat back exhaust on at the same time on my ‘10 4.0 six speed. On Floyd Hill west of Denver I would top out at 65 in sixth. After the TRD parts I was over 70 and climbing when I caught up to traffic. Highway MPG went from 21 to 22. Great sound and no codes.

    Those of u without codes on that flawed intake, count urself lucky...

    Not everyone gets a cel from the volant either.

    A simple search shows many issues with both the newer trd and the older volant, as I said before, I'd never run the newer trd intake myself. Without a wideband, you have no idea if it's running lean. The cel may only pop on under extreme conditions. But if you're happy, skate on.

    More mpg u say?
    So ur using less fuel right?

    Lean condition means..... Less fuel to air. I wonder if ur elevation is coming into play.

    Just something to consider... But it's your rig, there's plenty of info out there. I know at wot I peg somewhere around 10:1 but can modulate the pedal and change those numbers some.

    Actually I may run that flawed intake as a test.... If most of our trucks with the trd flash run pig rich in open loop.... Maybe the lean running intake would benefit me.
    So, I retract my statement about never buying/using one. I may just try it after some more homework
