Can anyone tell me if a K&N intake kit for a '04 4-runner V-6 will fit my '05 Tacoma V-6? In pictures, they look very similar. K&N claims they don't have anything for the new model yet.

So what would you suggest?
Since most people here don't know shite about the 4.0L V6 give it a shot. With the 3.4L engine there have been a few dyno's showing a loss in hp so you won't hear much good feedback about the K&N.

waste your money if you want...gadget has dyno charts showing a loss in power on an 3.4L V6 after the FIPK was put on, so i doubt it'll help the 4.0 if it even fits

What free-flow filter is a good choice? and how about the deck plate mod? I just haven't seen it done on this truck yet. I'm scared to screw it up, but willing to give it a shot if people say it'll help.

the deckplate mod gave 6hp or so on the 3.4, so chances are it will give more on the 4.0...hard to say though, the intake might be designed better on the 4.0. from what i've heard the amsoil filter is better than the k&n

Please get the thing and do before and after dyno tests and let us all know how it works out.

I had my airbox off my '05 and I will admit I am a tad baffled by the design. The secondary filter looks like it has charcoal in it. I guess the 4.0 needs very fresh none smelly air.

Do try it out and let us know how it works, PLEASE. I tested the POS K&N FIPK on the 5VZ. Someone else can test it on this new engine.
