Has anyone used a Airaide or K&N intake kit on your FJ? Just wondering if they are worth them money. Thanks!

I have the Airaid. It seems just from what I have read that the sound of the Airaid is not as loud as the TRD, this has been a downer for me since I wanted more sound. The upside is the price is about $100-150 less and its also street legal with its CARB number and sticker.

From a performance standpoint I would say the Airaid might have a slight disadvantage at lower speeds because it not as tight of sealed box as the TRD.

Install was easy.

The AFE CAI is by far the best intake available for the FJ Cruiser. The fit/finish is the best out there, and it can be adapted to work with the Safari Snorkel should you decide to add one later.

AFE also has a matching throttle body spacer and catback exhaust system, which together add about 40 HP...(and we've got them all in stock)

I run the aFe and have for over a year. I have the pro dry S filter for hwy and the Pro Guard 7 for off hwy conditions. As Larry said, it is the best.

Are these claim really true, regarding increase of 10-16 horses with a Cold Air Intake.

Just funny cause back in high school.... being a student and not having any money we use to cut PVC Plastic pipes to make cold air intakes and use
my moms stocking at the end for a filter .... GHETTO RICE-ERrR..... hahahah ;D "I'll beat you with my Honda, the stickers and flame paint job add 10-20 horses"

In my opinion the TRD design is pretty dope or the AFE Cold Air Intake. But I would replace the filter with HKS Honeycomb framed filter.

The Element is reusable and easy to maintain.
