Re: dyno numbers for TRD and AFE CAI
A cold air intake feeds more air into the engine, you can notice this the second after you've installed one and floored it. More air flow = more horsepower. I without a doubt notice that my FJ is faster than it was before and much more responsive. Going 60 on the highway and slamming it before barely did anything, now when I slam it going 60 the engine area shakes and it just floors up to that 100 mph mark :-P, masterzee, I'm going to take a wild shot...you don't have the CAI do you? I've also seen these Dyno tests comparing the TRD CAI to the AFE and seen the same results or close to the same results. I hate the aFe one because of that opening, and if you go deep in water...it would SUCK to have that hole suck up water. Cold Air Intakes make a drastic difference, however technically the STOCK Intake on the FJ is a cold air intake, it just doesn't have the box which delivers much more air into the engine (and the filter that is less restrictive). I remember my Dad's M3 BMW, when he added the CAI that thing took off like a bat out of hell, I noticed the difference instantly, he didn't even have to tell me.
