How tough are those trd filters to keep going? I know you have to oil them, which I also understand if not done correctly can gak up the MAF sensor.

If you have added the filter and Flow Accelerator to your stock box please post your thoughts. I am doing this tommorrow and was just wondering if you feel it was worth it or not.
I tried to find a pic on these are numbers you sent and i could not find them.... I saw that you posted pics but i keept getting for the pics you posted... Can you post them again?

I did this on Saturday, as well as the charcoal delete. Thank you for the heads up on the part #'s and the idea as a whole.. The $70 I paid for the two parts is a hell of a lot cheaper than the 463.00 my local dealer wanted for the TRD CAI.!! I simply wasn't going to paying that.. Seems like a small HP gain from how it felt driving before, still too early to tell on the mpg as I fill up on Sundays.. The sound is noticeable with my TRD Dual Exhaust.. Not crazy louder/annoying but just a small boost (basically you can hear it breathing in when passing someone) It's only been 3 days but thank you again for the idea.

If you are into bling and aesthetics then fine, go for the TRD CAI. It does look impressive. If you are after the performance take the two part numbers and run with it. Save yourself some hard earned money.

I have but left the charcoal filter in. I also have the trd dual exhaust and did both at the same time so can't say if it made any difference. I took the screen out between the intake tube and throttle body to get rid of the whistle.

Thanks!!
Why not get one from K&N?

I would rather use the stock CAI with paper filter over the K&N. At least I would know my engine is protected from dust and debris out on the trails.

Does K&N not actually filter the incoming air, or something?

It has to do with the finer particles that an damage your engine.

K&N Air Filter Review - Debunking the Myths (and why OEM is better)

There are quite a few other tests/comparisons. In a nut shell the stock paper filter plainly filters best. I am a firm believer that our stock CAI is best and others are for looks and sound-but that is my opinion...

Interesting. I want breathability and sound is a bonus. I don't want my truck to be suffocating.

Then again....I don't know much about trucks. So, maybe I really only want more sound.

I just dropped the TRD CAI last night on my 2015. I purchased it from a guy on Craigslist for $200 who was parting out his truck for a trade in. It was only 2 months old so I thought it was a no brainer. There's definitely a sound difference, but I can hear the biggest difference when you get up to the 3k+ RPM range. There is some whistling as well and I'm hoping to go through all the connections once more to try and narrow down a source point. We made the swap at night in a Walmart parking lot, so we were just trying to get it done without spending too much time in the lot. I do some 1-2 hr drives on the weekend and will try to see if I get any MPG gains.

Does the TRD CAI from a 2010 fit the new 2014/15?

Any MPG gain with the new intake?

I think there was some when I did this. It's been a while now. I reset the Avg. MPG reading on the dash on a 1.5 hr drive going between 65-75MPH. I got around 21-22 MPG. I don't know how accurate that is though. It seems high to me. Then, I got into the city on the same trip, it dropped it down to about 18-19 MPG. City driving was about 20 minutes going between 40-45MPH.

Since then, I haven't really reset AVG MPG on the dash and it sits between 14.2-14.7 MPG. This is pretty much city driving to and from work. I also have been a bit heavier on the pedal and not so worried about my MPG numbers anymore. I like to hear the bit of sound gains. haha.
