    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?
