URD’s True Cold Air Intake System for the 2005-2015 V6 Tacoma Trucks 

URD tested many designs to ensure you are installing a superior True Cold Air Intake (TCAI).  There are many intake systems on the market called “Cold Air Intakes,” but many are nothing of the sort.  Our testing demonstrates that air drawn from inside the engine compartment is not as cold as air from outside the engine bay.  It is that simple.

URD found that inducting air from the grill area is about 30 degrees cooler than inducting air anywhere from under the hood.  When vehicle speed increases dynamic air pressure increases thus forcing more air into the engine.

Another TCAI placement advantage is in cab noise reduction.  Make no mistake about it, the acoustics of this intake system at maximum RPM and wide-open throttle are very impressive, but the placement of the intake lessens noise inside the vehicle.  It will, however, get the attention of those you are passing.

Note that simply placing a filter in front of the truck does not make a good CAI. There are a number of subtle URD design attributes that are integrated into the TCAI to ensure a proper MAF Sensor reading.

URD’s TCAI uses the highest quality dry media air filter available.  We chose the high-end Amsoil/Injen nano fiber intake filter with an internal forcing cone.  This provides the best filtration available so there are no worries about the MAF sensor being contaminated with oil from other filter types.

URD’s TCAI Systems are powder coated with a high-quality black wrinkle finish and ship with all the required hardware and a very detailed, easy to follow installation manual.  The installation will require removing a small section of sheet metal between the passenger headlight and radiator.  This is easily done using an included template.

To extract the maximum benefit from the URD TCAI we recommend the installation of our MAF Sensor Calibration Unit.  This unit will electronically optimize fuel mixture for the greatest performance benefit.  When you purchase the URD MAF Sensor Calibrator with the URD TCAI a special map will be preloaded into the Calibrator optimized for an otherwise stock vehicle.  The Calibrator is end user tunable to compensate for other performance modifications you may have or may install in the future.

Legal in California Only for Racing Vehicles Which May Never be Used on a Highway.

Note: Only black wrinkle powder-coat is available

If you intend to use the URD TCAI with an aftermarket grill that completely un-shrouds the filter, you may want to consider using a shield to give the filter similar protection that the stock grill gives it.

If you need a new air filter for this intake you must use the one we have specially made for it.  You can find it here:

Using any other air filter will cause turbulence in the MAF sensor and it will not read properly.

    Great intake super easy and fast install. Noticed a big difference instantly. Good work Gadget

    Amazing intake. It sounds ridiculously good in the higher rpms. Ive put many different intakes on many different vehicles and this is the only one that has ever made me cheese like a little kid when I heard it for the first time and felt the difference. Well worth the money!

    I have to say this cold air intake sounds awesome, a lot of people that I know hear it for the first time and they think its my exhaust 🙂 but I explain to them it’s coming from my intake. I purchased the intake as well the MAF Sensor Calibrator recommend by gadget after talking to him through emails, he was very helpful explaining the benefits of using it together with the intake. First thing I notice was the sound! vs stock, then it was how snappy my throttle response was too, I am sure I have gained some HP just haven’t got to a dyno yet to confirm it. Build quality is excellent and was fairly easy to install (FYI: there will be some small cutting to do but was straight forward using the included instructions and supplies) I highly recommend this cold air intake to any Taco owner.

    I got it installed yesterday and test drove it today. It sounds so killer over stock and the intake temps I was getting were amazing. Already in love!
