Toyota Racing Development team has once again outdone themselves in this
arena by introducing the TRD Air Intake System for a Tundra Platinum
truck. The TRD performance
air intake system works in two ways. First, by giving the air a
restricted path into the combustion chamber of the Tundra's powerful 5.7L engine, a higher volume of oxygen - or more air - can enter the chamber. This additional mass of cold air leads to the second feature of the TRD Cold Air Intake System: because
this air is so cold it is
more dense; more dense air means more per cubic
centimeter/millimeter/mile... whatever measurement you desire, it just
means more of it!
summarize quickly, the TRD Cold Air Intake System pulls in colder, more
dense air and pulls the air in faster. Both of these equate to more and
more oxygen for the combustion engine to use, and more potential energy
that you know what any particular cold air intake system is, the next
question you have to ask yourself is "why should I spring for the TRD
Air Intake System?" As always, the start of that answer comes to the
important fact that it is custom-made to fit your Toyota vehicle or
Tundra Platinum truck. In fact, the Toyota Racing Development
performance air intake
for the Tundra replaces the upper half of the stock air box, filter,
and inlet hose assembly and features a reusable TRD air filter, high
volume upper air box, and a unique Intake Flow Accelerator (IFA) which
all adds up higher quantities (or volumes) of colder air resulting in an
increased horsepower and torque output.
And let's face it... isn't that why we love the Tundra 4WD truck, Tundra Limited, and Tundra Platinum series?
with any other TRD component, the Toyota Racing Development Air Intake
designed using the blueprints of the OEM intake. Though it might not
sound like a huge deal, this is important because the aftermarket air
intake could potentially interfere with the Mass Airflow
Sensor; a critical engine sensor. Some aftermarket or non-Toyota
authorized cold air intake systems interfere with the
reading of this sensor which can result in check engine lights, poor
fuel economy, and reduced power - or as we said above, the only things
we DON'T want our Tundra Platinums to do! But not only will an
aftermarket air intake possibly damage or reduce the potential of your
Tundra truck, many of them are not 50-state emissions legal like the the
TRD Performance Air Intake system.
TRD Performance Air Intake System is sold as a dealer
installed or over the counter option after the retail sale of the
vehicle. Unfortunately at this time we cannot sell them in vehicles as
you would buy one off our 39 South Main Street lot in St. Albans, VT or
on handytoyota.com, nor can the price of the TRD Cold Air Intake System
be lumped into the car loan in VT, lease payment, or other financing
method. We can however sell you the Tundra Platinum, order your TRD Air
Intake, and within a week's time have it in your truck!

Simply speaking, the more air and fuel you can
efficiently get into the powerful 5.7-liter V8 DOHC engine of your new 2012 Toyota Tundra LTD or 2012 Toyota Tundra Platinum, the more power you create. Though elegant and scientific in nature, it really just boils down to that "simple" fact.
