So.... I'm contemplating with all of this TRD intake talk being a direct "snug fit" from the fender port and the aFe isnt. A lot of talk being aFe is NOT a "real" cold air intake. I was wondering if I can get suggestions if i should trade my aFe for the TRD... ANy Suggestions will help!!! thanks boys! :confused:

If you have to ask whether to trade your AFE for a TRD intake, then I'm guessing you have buyers remorse. If your like me, then you already know the answer to your question. You'll never be happy until you get the TRD.

How much can you get for your AFE?

i have the trd intake. mine fits quite snug. i can sell you a brand new one for $325.00 plus shipping. if you find one cheaper let me know first, i'll see if i can beat it.

i see that the toyota parts people have it for 310. i can match that and will need a zip for a shipping quote. i don't have them in stock but if a few people commit to buying them i will start keeping them. i only takes a couple days for mr to get them. if my local warehouse has them i can get them the next day. anyone interested let me know.

look at the baffle that fits into the wheel well. On AFE, it is more rounded, TRD, more oval...not same.

Yeah, that sucks man. Not that it makes a whole bunch of difference, but still sucks.

Why can't the part be shipped directly from the warehouse to the customer ???

Or, from the warehouse to a local dealership, so noone has to pay shipping ???

toyota will not drop ship to anyone other than the dealership that ordered it. all of the dealerships are independently owned so the odds of getting another dealer to go along with it is going to be hard seeing that the price your paying is almost at dealer cost. it does not cost anymore for toyota to ship it to me, the only shipping you pay is for me to ship to you.

AzzKicker I am not talking about that model of the AFE. It seems they have a new desing that looks identical to the TRD

Any dyno results with this . I see that it is advertized to increase horsepower by 13 and torque by 22 acording for the afe.
