Will any 5vz intake tube fit to my stock air box? IE: from a 4Runner, Tundra or Tacoma? Mine is dry rotted to hell. I know my old tacos had a different air box but the tube looks the same to me. And I believe the 5vz Tundras have the same box as T100
It will fit the throttle body side and the MAF side but I'm going to guess that it will be too short because the T-100 engine bay was much larger than the Tacoma/4Runner engine bay. Take a shot and see. You never know. ;)

Just thought I'd put this out there, if you guys have that foam packing that sits at the bottom of the frame that sits below your AC condenser, I would highly recommend removing that foam packing as when you wash your truck or when it rains it stays soaking wet and now that bracket that goes from frame to frame on mine is rotted out

Remove that foam piece

Almost all the T100s I've looked at the last couple of years has that crossmemeber rusted pretty bad, even when there isn't much rust anywhere else.

200k+ on my 98. Why did they want to replace yours? Rusty or beat up?
That's what the shop guy said, I was sitting outside and he waved me in, he banged on it, you could here a lot of loose debris in it, I said not now, maybe later, but I figured on the way home that it's been on since '97, T has 376K, I'll give to end of the year

Is there a part number or hose size for the hose RETURN tube for the PS? Crawled underneath and the RETURN hose has cracks on the underside of hose

Not much preform on those return hoses. Not worth paying for a Toyota hose.
Replaced them on other cars. Some you can just use bulk hose and some require oem style bent preformed hoses.

i would think there MUST be a salted element to degrade and eat at the special Toyota coating, i have NO other explanation for it, unless it got scratched and primer compromised? then normal water wreaks HAVOC on this 'special' steel and it gets NASTY from a simple rain, i have a pic of that somewhere lol

Ok fellas, please don't bash me, I'm still learning my T, but what is that canister in the front driver's side wheel well that has one hose to it? Charcoal canister?

And this next...in the engine bay, behind the battery along the wall is a hose but with two ports, what's the other port for? I see nothing else needing a hose

I don't see anything else that needs to connect to it, finally this last hose, why does it go through the frame?

@TXRailroads73 does your 4x4 shifter have a plastic bezel and leather boot(s, if manual)? Mines just a metal plate and 2 rubber boots. Looks sh***y. The tacos and 4runner shifter bezels are super clean looking. I'm trying to find out of our trucks came with one originally and mines just missing or what
