    Hey, so I was thinking about installing a trd cold air intake on my tacoma. I have a few questions however. First, how much do they cost? second, are they difficult to install (do they just bolt on and you ready to go or do you have to mess with the amount of fuel that goes in the engine as well, or are there any other issues.), Last, are they worth it. do they really increase your mpg and horsepower? Any help would be appreciated

    The lean issue has been resolved with an easy fix. Don't let that deter you.
    Other than that whilersnapper got it right. They sound nice when you accelerate.

    I believe there might be some HP gain in the high RPM range, but honestly I doubt it really matters. Buy it if you like the way it sounds. I have a K&N intake but stick with TRD. The TRD intake still sucks in cold(er) air, whereas the K&N sucks in hot engine bay air.

    Here is the manual for the installation of the intake: (PDF)
