Toyota Tundra Cold Air Intakes

Are you considering adding an after-market air intake to your Tundra? Perhaps you’re wondering if an air intake makes sense? Maybe you’re trying to find the best air intake for you Tundra? Here’s what you need to know:

What Air Intakes Do

After-market air intakes replace the factory air intake, which includes the factory air filter and the factory air box. After-market air intakes are less restrictive than the factory intake, so installing one usually leads to an increase in power and/or fuel efficiency.

Do Air Intakes Really Work?

In a word, yes. They add 5-10 horsepower to most vehicles, and many owners see a 1-2 mpg increase in gas mileage after installing an air intake. Here’s some more specifics on how cold air intakes work.

The biggest change aside from the better throttle response and improved fuel economy is that your engine will be a little louder. Most truck owners appreciate the throatier, raspier sound of the engine, but not all.

Finally, contrary to what your dealership may say, there are no warranty concerns with installing an after-market air intake on your truck.
