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.
The AEM Brute Force Air Intake is tuned specifically for your 5.7L V8 Tundra. The length and diameter of the smooth-flowing aluminum intake pipe is custom-engineered for maximum performance. Comes with AEM Dryflow filter. Comprehensive instructions, full soft-mount hardware kit, install in an hour or less. Lifetime Warranty.
AFE’s Cold Air Intake System includes an AFE performance filter of your choice and all come with a powder-coated steel heat shield to keep the air flow cool. Takes about half an hour to install, backed by a Lifetime Warranty. Check out our aFe air intake review for more information.
K&N 77 Series includes custom-engineered intake pipe, heat shield, and K&N’s Filtercharger that’s washable and reusable. Polished finish that will dress-up your engine compartment. See our review of the K&N Series 63 for more information – the two kits are nearly identical. Includes a 10-year/1,000,000-mile warranty.
K&N starts every 63 Series Intake with the largest possible Filtercharger washable, reusable filter coupled with K&N’s crosslink nylon intake tube that runs cooler than a metal pipe. The kit requires no drilling or modification and installs in less than 90 minutes. See our review of the K&N Series 63 air intake. Includes a 10 year, 1,000,000 mile warranty.
Increase performance up to 18 horsepower add 40 lbs of torque.
Includes an enclosed air box, oil-free PowerCore air filter, takes less than an hour to install using standard tools. See our Tundra Volant Air Intake review for installation video, sound clips, our independent dyno rating (less than Volant’s rating, but still substantial), and our impressions of the kit.
