Performance Products lists it for $84.95 and I was thinking in conjunction with the deck plate mod.stevet47 said:i wish they would list the price, if its cheap someone should try it out, and see if it makes any differance. The deckplate mod would probably make the same or more power though, and that is only costs a few bucks.
WOW, 85$ for less than a foot of plastic pipe. I think you should just stick with the deckplate mod. You can only increase the airflow soo much, so I doubt you would see much (if any) imrovement, and IMO definately not 85$ worth of improvement.Breathegood said:Performance Products lists it for $84.95 and I was thinking in conjunction with the deck plate mod.
I have it from a goof ball on ebay for only $25. It sounds louder than with the stock setup. It did also flow more air. I run the SC'er with FTC unit and had to slightly increase fuel delivery to compensate for the increased airflow. As for increased HP? Maybe a bit but nothing my butt can feel.Breathegood said:
By any chance are you also running the SC Throttle body gasket? You know, the "O" shaped one. I feel like this setup is missing some low end torque/ponies, and I'ld like to maximize as much as possible w/o the SC. I'm saving my pennies for the SC, but if I don't have the cash in the next 5000 miles (already at 70K) I'm writing it off and spending the dough on more suspension upgrades.bb609 said:I have one on the exact same setup as you have but an '03. It does zip for performance but does clean up your engine bay a tad. Between this thing and the open deckplate, it howls like hell!
Really. I found that when I did the deck plate there was a definate increase in low end performance. I had done the headers and cat-back first and really only noticed gains above about 3200rpm, but after I did the deck plate, it seemed to lower the power band to like 2600rpm. Granted, I didn't get huge gains from the deck plate, but they were noticable and the truck didn't seem to be starving for air quite so badly. I also live at 6200', maybe that makes a difference.bb609 said:No. Short of a blower, I find the only mod that makes a difference is a dropin filter which gives you better throttle response. The deckplate gives you a little more at high end. Otherwise, it's all bs.
Sorry to hurt your feelings but most of that is in your head. Sound does not equal power. I use to think that too. Force induction is the only way to make your taco roar.Poopshute said:Oh, the Airaid MIT with the deckplate open makes your Taco roar at WOT... pretty cool.
Hey Jim, you beat me to it. I just responded to his post under the other folder. Hopefully he doesn't think we are flaming him, specially since you have the AIRAID and I plan on getting it, but we have totally different views and reasons for doing so. I will not dissagree with him that it may add HP, but if he really wants to defend this I would say supply actual dyno tests. Numbers, its all about numbers here.Super Doody said:Sorry to hurt your feelings but most of that is in your head. Sound does not equal power. I use to think that too.

Ha... just replied to your post on the other folder. I can't give you an HP amount. My Taco does FEEL like it has more power and the throttle response is better. All around between power and throttle response I FEEL it has given me an increase in both areas. I have to be careful with my words here or some may chop my ... well you know. The thing is I did the Deckplate Mod, Amsoil Air Filter, AND the Airaid all at once so all I can tell you is that from stock to what I have done there's an increase in power and throttle response especially at passing speeds. Again... 2.5k rpms and up is where I FEEL it. Sorry to make this so difficult but I'm trying to be as honest as I can.Juicy Jaos said:poopshute, in your other airiad post in the 4x4 section of the forum, you said "I can tell you for certain that there is more kick in the 2.5k+rpm range as well as better throttle response."
now in this post, you say "I'm not saying it gave me a certain amount of HP or whatever I'm just saying that it gave me better throttle response."
So which is it? Power or throttle response? Or both? I'm just trying to figure out what this thing gave you besides a louder intake sound and nicer looking engine compartment. You still haven't answered my question about how much power you think you got from this $100 pipe. I'm not flaming you either... I just want to know from someone who has actually got the thing in his rig. Thanks...
hey what is the tube made out of? let me know what you find out on the fitment issue.JaresTaco said:I wonder if I can use my old K+N FIPIK tube that has ben sitting in my garage, to fit into my stock box...Has anybody tried that yet..??mmmmmm.....I will try that tonight! Glad I saw this post...
