CAIs are a waste of money unless you're looking for obnoxious noise in the cab, but you seem determined to get one. You can get dry filters to fit any intake. I had one in my Volant and now have one in my stock intake.

thank you for the input, i am kinda determined i think it would help for the purpose of what i want it maybe not right now haha but i would like more power is the main thing im kind of on the edge for that one not sure what to do i want one but seems a little unnecessary but i think it would be good for what i want to do with the truck (down the road) haha but it seems that really the only difference between a REAL CAI and the k&n and AEM etc... is houseing. the fact that the volant has houseing so its not getting any air from the engine, but drunk mentioned that the others only get air while the truck is moving so sounds like it has something else that makes it different other than houseing, im not too sure on how CAI's work other than the fact that they use different tubeing, tubeing that makes it easier for air to flow and more heat resistant. so if someone really has the time please explain hahahaha

I went to take them out cause there clipped in on the inside of the hood but the clips are plastic i tried to unclip one and it just breaks off any suggestions on how to go about this? Im thinking news paper and tape haha to mask it off

I slipped blue painter tape under the edges and went all the way around the grille. Then I masked off everything else and painted mine. For the main grille, I removed the whole thing from the hood, there's about 7-9 bolts holding it in. For the strip on the bumper, I just used tape around the strip, then used plastic to cover the truck.

The CAI will make more noise, they eliminate the resonator that comes on the stock intake tube. If you look at the stock tube you'll see a box with vacuum lines running to it, that acts as a cushion to lower noise. The AFE is very similar to the K&N, it's not really a CAI but a short tube(or ram intake). These shorten the distance that air has to travel to meet your motor, which reduces the resistance allowing easier breathing in higher RPM.

The stock intake tube and Volant kit keep the distance which air has to travel. The longer the distance, the more torque will be produced(there are limits to this statement, not saying a mile long intake will give you 1000lbft of torque). This is a lesson I learned in my VW bug days.

Yes, please ban them!

Just kidding, those suggestions are all applicable to a first gen, besides I recognize that truck from TS. I've seen guys hop on with suggestions to install stuff that isn't available for our generation. Ban THOSE guys.

I have an appreciation for the new ones, but I agree. They are too bulky for my taste, and I'm not so fond of the lines on the body, reminds me of a Ram. The new Taco's are a nice platform, but to me they are a touch on the girly side. Maybe its the pink tail lights, maybe its the big headlights, or the Corolla-like interior. I like trucks to have a bench seat, not an intrusive center console with 3 cup holders... I don't drink THAT much to necessitate 3 cup holders... that part might not be true.

Honestly the newest taco i dont like as much as the 08 model there similar but something about the front idk but just not as nice but i was either going to get my first gen or an 06 and up taco, since there about the same size and look similar like the tundra a bit better though

Total Chaos UCA, the steering rack bushing, and sway bar bushing

Just a few of the things I have done
Most of the power mods are worthless.....take drunks advice because I think he has tried most. For the 1st gen. if you want power you got to go with the supercharger...
Hope this gave you a few ideas.
