    How about you take his advice and search. If you are going to be an ass about it then look elsewhere. But if you can be mature and not act like a child then we will be more than happy to help.

    You won't get much gain from a CAI...it'll sound cool though! If I were gonna get one i'd go with the URD Tru CAI

    I have the TRD CAI and love it. The only thing I want to change about it, is the filter. I've heard nothing but good things about the AFE Pro Dry S; even the drop in filter

    X2. Other than the TRD or URD, not much can be had from an after market intake.

    Getting a CAI is kinda pointless I heard because of your throttle body...No matter how much air your capable of taking in it still has to pass through the passage of the throttle body. Its like pouring from a small bowl into a straw then going to a bigger bowl...it doesn't matter cause the straw can only allow in so much at a time

    ^ true. But it does sound cool! And I have noticed since I put my stock one back on, that my throttle responce is not so good anymore.. Although I still have the stock filter so that may be the cause, so im either getting a AFE drop in or a Amsoil dry filter with my AFE intake.. But like said above dont expect much from an intake.

    If you do a lot of offroading stick with one that is a closed box filter system like the AFE one. I'm always cleaning my K&N, came with the truck.

    My conditions were a bit extreme. I'm usually following 3 trucks in the desert throwing clouds of dust. When compared to my buddy's stock filter, mine gets dirtier.

    I really like the K&N I put on mine. It was a fairly easy install and is easy to clean.

    To clean mine i just had to go to Autozone and buy the recharging kit. It comes with instructions but you just have to wash, clean, and rinse, then re-oil. Doesn't take very long and doesn't have to be cleaned very often unless you love the dirt.
