Take a moment to breathe deep. That breath fills your lungs with clean, fresh oxygen (unless you happen to live in L.A. or Pittsburgh). That oxygen clears your head and revives you (something to keep in mind when you find yourself starting to doze off in the weekly staff meeting).
Your Toyota is similar. But instead of an occasional deep breath, it needs a continuous flow of fresh, cool air to function efficiently, especially when under performance demands. Enter the air intake system. Air intake components increase horsepower and the overall efficiency of an internal combustion engine by drawing in cool air. But not all are created equal.
Stock intake systems are designed to eliminate engine noise and, as a result, greatly restrict airflow, forcing you to take a hit in performance and fuel efficiency. In contrast, cold air intakes completely replace the stock components currently in your vehicle and provide a smoother pathway for air to enter the engine. This simple but effective upgrade ushers in the greatest improvement to overall horsepower and torque of any other performance upgrade.
Constructed of high-quality stainless steel, polyethylene and other durable materials, cold air intakes and other Toyota performance parts – like Banks Monster exhaust parts, Tundra Volant cold air intake, AEM Brute Force air intakes, Volant intakes and aFe cold air intakes – also feature a powder-coated steel heat shield to keep the air flow cool.
Simply by incorporating one of these aftermarket performance-enhancing cold air intakes, you can immediately achieve a noticeable boost in horsepower, up to 18 hp, with an additional 40 lbs of torque. Plus, you’ll enjoy a considerable savings at the pump, streamlining your fuel economy to add between 1 - 2 miles per gallon on every trip, making it one of the best ways to increase gas mileage, so long as you don't turn into a Larry Lead Foot.
Now, with all these gains, installing a Tacoma intake must require advanced automotive skill and be nearly impossible, right? Not so. In fact, it’s one of the easiest upgrades you can make to your Toyota. While the process differs considerably from vehicle to vehicle, most installations only require basic hand tools and can be completed in about an hour, with some taking as little as 10 minutes!
Toyota performance parts and other Toyota accessories are the ideal upgrades for those looking to achieve the most their engine has to offer. The power is under your hood. With cold air intakes, you can tap it!
