    Thank you for your interest in True Flow. Unfortunately the XDI intake is not CARB approved as of yet. I can tell you however that the majority of our competitors are in the same boat. California has become very strict on their approval process recently and I don't know of any intakes that are being approved. This is very unfortunate because these intakes actually improve emissions and fuel mileage so it really does not make since. A lot of it is just political. Secondly I don’t think any Toyota’s can be CARB approved unless they leave the pre-filter where it is. Toyota uses a carbon pre-filter in their intake system. According to CARB you have to keep that carbon pre-filter or use the exact same material in your system. Since Toyota isn’t revealing what they are using, anyone making an aftermarket intake that removes the carbon pre-filter will not be able to get CARB approval. What most people in California do who run our intake is keep their factory system to put back on when it is time for emissions. Luckily our system is only about a 20-30 minute process to change back so it is not difficult. I hope this answers your question. Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

    Regarding the CARB I would just check back with us in about 4-6 months however I would not be surprised if we do not get approved for CARB since they have really cracked down on the approvals they have given out. As I was explaining earlier most of our competitors are not getting approved also. I think keeping the stock intake parts is definitely a smart idea. In regards to the exhaust I would think that should help as well since you will be bringing more air in it is always better to get more air out. In regards to gas mileage I’m not sure if the exhaust system will help the mileage or not. I would ask whoever you are buying the exhaust system from if they have seen any increases or not.
