    On their 2.7. Lets see some pics/opinions. I find it too hard to believe they "dont make a difference.
    Lets see some ACTUAL mpg/feel/sound reviews.....GO!

    AFE doesn't make a CAI for the 4 banger. I have a AFE/TRD intake on my V6 and it didn't do anything. Why? There isn't much restriction in the intake. The restriction is at the head.

    I just cancelled my AFE filter order because it was over a month with no feedback, so Im just ready to buy a K&N one here (because its hard to find AFE in Canada) or buy an intake. Just looking for the "final word" type opinions.

    K&N is not cold air either. Charcoal filter delete and AFE drop in. Nice little jump in throttle response and a bit of sound. Cheaper and still cold air.

    I got the AFE pro dry replacement filter, stock intake. Surprisingly did give me 2 more mpg. Can't say I feel any more power, but I can live with better mpg. Like it's been said, no AFE intake for the 2TR, just filters.

    Here is the intake that everyone says does not exist.

    I ran it, then sold it....it was entirely too loud, it did allow the truck to breathe better however i wouldn't say it added much horsepower.

    I then removed the 2nd air filter in the stock box and dropped in a K&N. This provided better performance, and is much quieter.

    plus Im thinking when I get a snorkel it will be super easy to install with the stock intake
