dyno numbers for TRD and AFE CAI

I found these numbers in 2 different magazines. Anyway, here they are. AFE's numbers where 13 horsepower and 21 pound feet of torque. The TRD gave 15 horsepower and 25 pound feet of torque. I think that the AFE was lower because it draws in warmer air from the engine bay along with the cold air from the fender. Otherwise I would think that the numbers would be identical. Anyway, enjoy!!!

Re: dyno numbers for TRD and AFE CAI

So, now that you know the numbers which CAI would you get?

The real question is: "Is two HP worth an extra $50?"

Just my take, but I became biased when I couldn't get a TRD intake for less than $300 bones. You can call me cheap but there are a lot of mods to get done!

If you really believe that you will gain 13 to 15 horsepower by changing the air intake system, you should also buy and install one of those "Tornadoes". Then you could really climb some steep hills.

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.

Re: dyno numbers for TRD and AFE CAI

Check this thread out for some factual numbers. Not sure where the "magazines" you refer to got their numbers. Were they ad's?

Re: dyno numbers for TRD and AFE CAI

The magazines that I was refering to are 4WD Toyota Owner and Motor Trend's Truck and SUV. Both CAI's where listed as new parts. None-the-less, people now have an idea as to what these two CAI's can possibly do for their rig in terms of power. Maybe they aren't 'factual', but it is better than nothing. Don't you think?

Re: dyno numbers for TRD and AFE CAI

I remember a net gain below 5 rwhp the last time I read an actual dyno sheet before and after a cold air system install on a FJ. Not all vehicles benefit drastically from this mod.
