    Yes, you should notice immediate throttle response, maybe micro noticeable fuel mileage gains, better sound from under the hood, with the 100,000 mile filter it pays for itself. The instructions that come with are questionable at best but fortunately there are you tube installation videos that make it a breeze. If you are even remotely mechanically inclined, should install in less than an hour. My opinion...Volant is the best CAI for your Tundra! Sealed box = colder air =better performance.

    CAI typically rob your low end power with marginal gains at redline.

    How often do you run out to redline? Hardly ever is my guess, so I would recommend saving your money. Get a drop in filter and save the rest of the money to fill up the beast.

    Or you can look into a Hypertech or bullydog tuner, dirtydeeds exhaust, JBA headers - all proven and will give you power in the RPM range you will see 99% of the time.

    My 2 cents

    You already have a cold air intake from the factory. Unfortunately the ecu will compensate for the extra air flow, if there is any at all. I added a drop in afe and it caused my low end tq to drop. The factory one with a paper filter is best.
