    That's more the reason I was trying to piece this together. I'd rather use the AFE dry filter with the TRD intake but didn't want to pay for the whole intake and not use the filter.

    I installed the intake on Saturday, and it somehow changed the exhaust note. Is that normal for a CAI?

    I added a TRD cai this morning. Took about 30 minutes. Very nice fitment, easy install and the sound is a lot more noticeable. It sounds great, the truck feels smoother in the lower rpm range, a little more throttle respond. I would like to say I got some ponies but I did get a lot smoother driveability. Waiting for my TRD exhaust to come in to the dealership in the morning.IMG_20190415_104653782.jpg

    The rush of positive intake air pressure through the throttle blade and intake manifold can actually be much louder than the exhaust system at higher rpm. Enjoy your new and improved engine roar!! :thumbsup:

    Can anyone tell me if the outlet angle of the TRD upper air box and the stock version are similar? I'm thinking about piecing together an intake using the intake/flow accelerator, the TRD upper air box, an HPS silicone intake hose, and an AFE dry filter. The HPS silicone hose is made for the stock upper air box, however, and I'm curious if this combination will fit.

    I would like to know this info myself, HPS sure boasts some high HP and torque numbers which I believe are exaggerated. Nonetheless, a straight tube should theoretically flow more CFM than a bellows.

    I've submitted a request to HPS for some additional information regarding their intake hose. Can anyone on this forum who has the TRD air box measure the outer diameter of the outlet, where the bellows attach?

    Search AFE filters online, there are plenty of dealers who will ship to you.

    Added the pro exhaust cat back today, I must say it goes great with the TRD cold air intake. Sounds great, smoother driveability and it feels a little better all around. Would I do it again, absolutely!. The exhaust welds were the best I have seen in a long time. My factory exhaust is junk compared the pro exhaust.

    Mds08, glad the exhaust and intake combo are what you were looking for. How does the exhaust sound in the cab at highway speeds? Is it noticeable?
    Any chance you can measure the TRD airbox outlet diameter for me?

    The sound is actually about as quiet as stock but lot deeper sounding and when you open her up she is smooth and deep sounding. No popping or raspy sound. The air box screams at you. It does sound pretty bad ass for what it is. I know it's not a V8 but I swear it's one of the best sounding 6cyl I have heard. I have a stroker motor in my mustang with some hard hitting cams and lopes it's ass off so I know what a nice sounding exhaust sounds like. I will measure it this evening.
