    Looking for cold air intake for 18 tundra 5.7 and k@n is telling me not for 3 or 4 months still. I told them under the hood was the same as the 17 they told me no they were still testing. Gimme some input so I can pull the trigger or just hold up and wait.

    Does the CAI not do a lot? Maybe add 5-10 HP and supposed better fuel efficiency?

    The truck already has a cold air intake, stock. So adding a cold air intake, won't do anything, other then change the sound....best bet as a lot of people say is to use an afe dry filter and do the sabm. I have the afe and I didnt notice anything different, haven't done the SABM mod but honestly I'm not thinking cutting a hole in my truck is worth it, as I dont feel another hole into the airbox would do very much at all to add hp.

    CAI = cool, swoosh sound from engine.

    Tail pipes = cool sound from exhaust.

    DAP Tune = more horsepower, better throttle response, better shifting, better acceleration. Money well spent.

    How does the DAP tune affect gas mileage?

    If anything it helps a little as you don’t have to stomp it to get the truck to downshift for passing or acceleration. Some report 2-4 mpg increase according to website, but I seem to be noticing about the same so far on my 400 miles since tune. Definitely not a decrease unless you just stomp it all the time, which is tempting.

    $600 for remote tune, $400 if you go to his business, $425-$500 if he comes out to your area.

    Does the DAP Tune need to be re-tuned when mods are added (TRD exhaust, cold air intake, etc)?

    shrek says to unplug the battery for 1 1/2 hrs after adding mods so it will re-learn.
