    I'm about to get a TRD Cold Air Intake for my 08 Tacoma PreRunner. I heard they are discontinued. There are some on ebay but I don't think they'll last. Does anybody know if they're gonna make a newer one. Does anybody know where to get replacement filter cartridges or can anyone tell me how often i would need to change the filter.

    I believe they are discontinued. I just sold mine and I was trying to get a part number and couldn't find one. Toyota does sell a cleaning kit for it though. The filter is reusable :D.

    Just out of curiosity, how come you sold yours? Did you get a better one?

    My little girl didn't like it. She was ok with the exhaust but when I added the intake I guess it was too much so I pulled it out of the truck :D . It was too bad though because it was almost brand new :rolleyes:.

    What do you mean it was too much? I'm getting both on my truck soon. What was the problem?

    Toyota just released a new part number for 2010 models, so that's why they appear to have been discontinued. The intake wasn't discontinued, just the part number that used to apply to the 05-09 models has been discontinued.

    Any idea if there was an actual change besides the part number? I just ordered one of the old ones under the assumption that it worked fine on the 2010's...

    Yeah, as far as I know, there are no changes, just a new part number.

    So i bought a TRD intake for our trucks off ebay for $350 new. On the invoice that was included in the box from the dealer I purchased it from, it said the list price was $475!!! I was surprised to find out that the intake wasn't the cone-type air filter like everyone has :confused: Instead it's a normal pleated filter but it's still considered a cold air intake. The manufacture date is 2/11/10 which i found very interesting. Has anyone seen/have this intake???

    Yep, that's it! You think I should go ahead and install it or get the old style? CARB ratings and it's emissions standards i don't care about at all. Bottom line i want the better of the two units

    Dunno. Like I said, not a lot of people have them and I haven't seen any qualitative comparisons.

    OK so i installed the brand new TRD intake today and i have to say it is BAD ASS!! i couldn't be happier with the re-design and it is super quiet. Compared to my old K&N intake, this one is way quieter and definitely has more power. I went out and punched it a couple times on a straight away near my house and i could definitely notice a difference. the shift points are slightly different and the truck doesn't need to downshift as much = better MPG:D
