    CLOSED BOX COLD AIR INTAKE KIT 2016-2018 TOYOTA TACOMA 3.5L 959-18635.jpg 959-18635_2.jpg 959-18635_3.jpg 959-18635.jpg 959-18635_2.jpg 959-18635_3.jpg
    PART NUMBER: 959-18635 Brand NEW!

    This is a newly released item! Just arrived via ups hot off the manufacturing line. There is even a waiting period to get your hands on one.

    I aquired this hoping to fit it on my cousins 4runner as a gift. While it was on its way I found out it wouldnt fit. It will only fit the 3.5 tacoma. Im a Jeep guy, so it does me no good.

    I realize im new here. If you need reference... I have 100% ratings on ebay, greatlakes4x4, jeepforum, pirate 4x4, ect.

    Description: Eliminate your restrictive factory air box, filter, and intake tube. In their place, install one of the Volant Pro-5 closed box air intake kits. They house a high-flow Volant air filter that is cleanable and reusable. Being an enclosed system, the Pro-5 keeps your engine quiet at cruising speeds, but still allows it to roar to life when you stomp on the gas. This design protects the filter and ensures that colder air is pulled in from the fender instead of the engine bay--resulting in more horsepower and torque. These intake units are factory-tuned, and everything you need for installation is included. Volant Pro-5 kits are available for fitment on a variety of makes and models.

    I cant answer that for sure, Im a jeep guy and dont know much about toyotas. But I dont know why this intake would make your truck run lean. I doubt it as it looks to have locations to transfer over you factory sensors properly. I personally have a volant intake on my jeep and it does an excellent job. I am very happy with it.

    As far as a waiting list, im not sure... I just know when I recieved it last week, there was a couple week or so wait to recieve your order from a vendor like summit racing when I looked it up.

    Because the prior generation did just that.
    The sensors are calibrated for a certain tube diameter, and when the diameter of the tube is changed or the sensor is moved, it can cause incorrect reading due to faster or slower airflow despite the quantity not being more or less... just faster or slower based on diameter.

    Same with 2nd gen "trd" (aem/k&n made) intake.

    Well, I guess if you are worried about it, I would put a call in over to a Volant tech to see what they say about the issue.

    Lmao, they wont address it.
    So i guess we will leave it as, nobody knows if this intake causes lean conditions which could blow up the engine.

    Not sure, but it does say " These intake units are factory-tuned". So maybe they designed it to retain the factory length, dia and placement of sensors to address that issue. Which is why I said to call a tech there to verify...
    Who knows, maybe they are aware of the issue and resolved it in their design.

    Or possibly the third gens dont have the issue the 2nd gens do to begin with???

    Also, what about a tuner? Doesn't the aftermarket offer some kind of tuner for the yotas that would allow a change to the factory tune to match the intakes offered in the aftermarket?
