AEM Air Intake Systems are designed to produce massive horsepower and torque gains as well as better engine sound when used as a replacement for the factory airbox and air filter. AEM intake systems are designed, tuned, and dyno-tested to fit specific cars and trucks. These air intakes usually include an oversized AEM Dryflow synthetic washable air filter for outstanding air flow, filtration, and performance while allowing easy oil-free cleaning. Most AEM intake systems use mandrel-bent aluminum intake tubes, powder coated heat shields, and high quality hardware designed to reduce restriction and reduce intake temperature. The design and components of each intake system vary so consult the installation instructions for more information on the contents of each part number. AEM manufactures a variety of intake kit styles including short ram intakes, cold air intakes, dual-chamber intakes, Brute Force intakes for trucks and SUV's, and Brute Force HD intakes for diesel applications.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Installation: The product itself is very well made and fit perfectly. All necessary bolts and clamps came with the intake along with very clear instructions. I would not call myself a mechanic and completed the entire removal of the existing air cleaner system and installation of the new in about 1 hour at a casual pace.
Gas Mileage: I purchased this intake for my 6 cylinder 2003 Tacoma Pre-Runner in hopes to gain some gas mileage. Calculating any gas savings is difficult however I would be safe in estimating I gain about 10 additional miles on a full 17 gallon fill up. At $2.00 saving per weekly fill up would take about 2.25 years for the intake system to pay for itself.
Added Power: Unable to tell the difference.
Noise: I was slightly concerned about the noise mentioned other reviews. There is an increase in the noise if you stand on it however it is not over powering. When driving normally it is little different than the stock air intake...
First let me say I bought this because my stock air box had a split and this was 1/4 the price of Toyota. 2nd, when you install this the main bracket for the AEM pipe itself did not fit..I bent it by hand and it worked. It doesn't look like you can do that but you can..I moved it about a inch back. 3rd, I just installed it today, so I can't tell if it saves on gas but I can tell you there is NO additional noise from it. 4th, the reason I removed 1 star is the AEM pipe had a worn spot on it, I'm guessing it was a return for some reason. and 5th, MAKE SURE you stop and get a can of MAF cleaner. The MAF was black when I took it out and you most likely will save more gas from that being clean than anything.
I installed this on my 2003 Toyota Tacoma 3.4L 4X4. It sounds amazing and smoothed out my power-band. I didn't like that the over oiled OEM filter dirtied up my MAF sensor almost immediately. Also, the rubber grommet/frame bolts that come with the kit are cheap and fell apart over a month.
*Update 4/6/16 I've replaced not 1,2, but 3 intake tubes via AEM already because of the welds snapping at the tube bracket. This is unacceptable, and I would look elsewhere if I were you.
*Update 9/9/16 Broken again...tired of this product, goodbye AEM and hello K&N!
