Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro Intake Install

Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro Intake Install

The Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro is a vehicle that was built for a specific purpose; to tackle the toughest off-road encounters, more so than any other toyota produced vehicle. Yet, with a look of a menacing scowl, it still can somehow woo buyers who might be apprehensive of having a lifted SUV. Although it may seem out of its element running errands on suburban streets, with the increased ride height and serious off-road equipment of the 4Runner TRD Pro is just the right amount of “cool” for around-town.

The ageing 1GR-FE was often criticized for being a bit underpowered. This customer was looking to “pep” up the powerplant, with a Toyota official TRD cold air intake kit.

Install went smoothly, very straight forward with an excellent set of instructions if you want to try and tackle this DIY. It definitely looks right at home with all of the other TRD factory hardware.

The intake definitely seems to wake the 4Runner up a bit, as you can definitely feel it’s breathing much better in the upper rev range. There is a faint whistle below 1800 rpm, but once you get above 4000 rpm, the engine now shouts with a addictive roar. Careful with the accelerator pedal!

Ultimately, if you’re looking to add a CAI to your Toyota 4Runner we would definitely recommend the factory TRD Pro option. We’ve read good reviews about the AFE intake as well so in the end, this may come down to pure aesthetic preference. Reasonably priced and very well manufactured, we think you’ll be satisfied.

    Wanted to know if water can go inside the engine because of the TRD PRO COLD AIR INTAKE? I’m very interesting of getting one but hesitating about it

    Haven’t tested that out yet, however, TRD looks to have thought about water intrusion in their design though.
