Hi

I have a 2K9 tundra 5,7 with a Skyline exhaust and i want to add a air intake and a tuner.
For the air intake i have seen two models: K&N and TRD which is better?
for the tuner, i see the bully dog GT+ is it the better? how can i find the specific tune with exhaust and air intake?
Do i add more parts?

Thanks for yours answers

I have a Flowmaster 50 dual in, single out exhaust installed on my 5.7 MGM. I didn't see any improvement in HP but did gain a bit in MPG. I got my K&N CAI earlier this week and installed it. I noticed an immediate difference in performance. I can't speak to how much (if any significant) HP gain, but the difference in torque and shifting smoothness through the gears was significant. Also, I could immediately hear how much better it was breathing by the extreme change in audible tone of the exhaust. Much louder and deeper throaty sound. As far as MPG change, its still too early to tell, but the truck is currently reading 15.9 with all light to light city driving. I can't speak to the TRD CAI, but I have always ran K&N my vehicles and never been disappointed.

As ViktorG said. Keep the stock intake. Do the S.A.B.M. ( stock air box modification ) and get a Bully Dog. You can fab your own S.A.B.M. look on YouTube, you'll get the idea. Drop in a K&N. Get a nice free flowing cat back exhaust, to start with. These things paired with the Bully Dog = Loads of Fun!!! Depending on the model, the 93 octane may be "Trial".
