alrighty i get paid tomorrow and i was wondering what to do. I was thinking at first to just get a K&N filter for the stock box. I was also considering getting an intake but it looks complicated compared to my 94 corolla haha. Or can you just stick a cone filter onto the stock piping?

I installed a K&N filter in replacement of the stock filter, and i love it. But ig you want to install a intake that is a different story, I have an 06 XR and and finding a CAI that i like is rather diffcult, but if you have the money intake is the way to go, with you perfer SR or CIA is up to you. I am going to install a intake within the next couple of months, hope this helps, PM if you need any links to intake i have researched a whole bunch

Obviously, those who have DIY will say it isn't 'hard' to install. All it takes is a couple of reads through the instructions, familiarizing yourself w/ the parts that are involved, doing a dry run and you should be successful at it.

Handling the MAF is one of the easiest parts of the installation. Just remove it, put in a safe place until you need to reinstall it. That's it.

Try to avoid oiled gauze filters, like K&Ns. Toyota's having issues with them, as they will dirty the mass air sensor. Dry gauze filters are available.
