Thanks to "azzkicker" I have this months add on to my truck!
I paid $260.00 it arrived today and took about 30 min to install.
I didn't do a DIY because it come with a great set of instructions!!
Thanks! "azzkicker"!!!:thumbup: :thumbup:


The only thing is that it looks funny is the big void that the stock air box left behind??:dunno: :dunno:

Most months I do one mod but this month? I also had a chance to get my windows tinted!:D :D
The wife didn't say anything yet!:confused: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Yeah! I know! If you minus the cost of s/h then he sold it for $235. Actual s/h was $25. He had it on the For sale section as make offer??
So I offered him $250+$10s/h? I thought he would get insulted?? But he took my offer?? I owe that man a Beer!!
As for the sound I only started it up I didn't drive it yet?
Now I need to get a dual exhaust! I think that is on my Next months list!!:D :D

O.K. I went for a drive. Holy crap this thing is loud at WOT!
Under normal driving it sounds almost like stock with a slight growl.
But when you punch it? Man this thing roars!!
I'm not sure if I'm gonna keep it???:dunno:
May take some getting use to.
Is that normal for a CAI??? :dunno: :dunno:
It sure is a big change from stock. Wasn't expecting it to get that loud.

stock intake systems usually incorporate some type of silencer system to keep it quiet. and i've never heard of any aftermarket intakes that are designed to retain that factory "stealth". some are worse than others, but in general, it is a rather noticable difference. i've never heard any intakes on the tacos, so i can't compare. hopefully you don't regret getting it. if you want to sell it i'll give you $50 for it. i figure $50 is worth experiencing it first hand...lol

Yeah? This is the first time I've heard it on a Taco? Since it's only really loud when I punch it it should be no problem.
I know it scared the guy jogging on the side of the road.:lol: :lol:
But if I do decide to sell it $50 would be fine plus s/h of $200 lol!!:naughty:
I want to order the AEM dry filter for this but it not out yet? So this will have to do for now.
We'll see if the claims of better MPG is true?

No not interested in selling it. If it gets on my nerves then I'll just pack it up and store it until my son can drive. He might want it when he inherits the truck?:naughty:

Hey Toku : Any update on MPG difference since you put the CAI on the truck? Am thinking about hoisting one up in my truck if there's an improvement w/ MPG or power. As far as it being loud, at normal cruise is it noticable at all, or only when you stand on it? I'm on the interstate a bunch, and don't want to get pissed off if something constantly drones. Am thinking about an exhaust of some sorts, but also want it quiet until I put my foot in it ( might hook up w/ Pointer's muffler he has for sale next week.... )

Am pretty new to TN ( 2007 Taco DBL PreRunner SB 4.0 5A / Indigo also, charcoal ). Want to do some mods to it, but not much. Leased it (business reasons), so not wanting to put alot of $$ in it. But want to enjoy it while I have it..... just don't want VP's at work to refuse to ride to airport with me if it's a boombox.

Seems like a good group of guys on here. :rockon:

Hey do a sound clip!!! Video etc...

If you sell it, i'll take it. i just one island way, less shipping $
I still haven't had a chance to look into trying to post up vids??
I'm not sure how to get the vids from my camera to the computer?? :dunno:
As for selling it?? Even if I remove it I really doubt I'll sell it? I don't really need the money and my son might want it, later when I give him the truck.
But Thanks for the offer!

was there a noticible performace increase?
To be honest I haven't really noticed?? The noise has been so distracting that I kind of forgot what my truck felt like before??:lol: :lol:
But the truck does sound great under normal daily driving!
I have been looking for an exhaust for the truck because it feels like the engine is being held back because of restriction from the stock exhaust.


My biggest disappointment with the intake is that No one gets to see it?
This thing is an awesome looking set up in the engine bay!:thumbup:
From what I understand about the noise?? That's just how an intake sounds on our truck.

Oh the TRD air box does seem to have a issue with vibrating! It would appear that the inner rear corner closest to the fender need to have additional insulation. For now I used a small piece of rubber sling from my old diving spear.

not to ask a stupid question, but what does "WOT" stand for? I know what you are taking about basically, but as for the initials, i'm unsure of..
