    I found a cleaning kit by K&N. It comes with the oil and cleaning solution for their intakes. You guys think this will work on the TRD intake? Are all the oils the same?

    I have an Airaid intake and I used the K&N cleaning kit on it. Seemed to do the trick quite nicely.

    The K&N oil is different than the aFe/TRD filter oil. The K&N is petroleum based and the aFe is vegetable based and I am told works better and does not contaminate the MAF like the K&N oil does.

    If you want a smoking deal on an aFe cleaning and oil kit let me know. I must have 30 of them and I need to get rid of them. No idea how we ended up with so many of them.

    Not going to lie. I don't like the idea of a vegetable based oil on my vehicle. Don't really want it breaking down and going rancid or decomposing on me.
