save your money. buy a k&n replacement filter.

air intakes do NOTHING for a stock motor. especially a 2.3

i noticed NO difference on my 4.0 i wouldnt have even bought mine if i didnt get it for so cheap. the only plus is you dont need to buy new filters, you just clean the old one

Not trying to be *******s, just being honest. A 2.3 wont really gain anything from that.

I don't think I'd take it for free. You will make way more power with a 2JZ swap. Maybe some NOS in the side too:

It wont help man. You will suck in all kinds of hot air and it will actually hurt performance. If it was some kind of shielded box I'd say go for it but its just a cone at the end of a pipe. I had a K&N FIPK on my 03 4.0 and it was the biggest pile of **** because at had some crappy heat shield that didn't do anything. My truck felt super slow after sitting in traffic with the ac on.

its cool dude.....we all do things to our trucks that other people find dumb

its YOUR truck....do what YOU want

we are just trying to tell you that this will just be a shiny factory replacement....nothing more

hell....if it was a gift, i'd take one just for show cause my engine bay is super clean and it would be a nice touch

You just lost a few degrees of timing, and the torque along with it!

That doesn't happen either - go with the 2JZ/Nos swap if you want that.
