+ Second Best Average Power in 4000-4500 RPM Range

Negatives

– ECU reflash is a must to get peak performance from the intake system.

Overview: The TRD intake appears to be another design that focuses on airflow over signal tweaking. When the EcuTek is added to the mix, the performance increase available from the intake start to shine. Improved horsepower and torque production were both easily realized with some minor tuning changes. However, EcuTek tuning is a must to realize peak power with this intake system.

Peak Results- HP: +7.73 @6950RPM TQ: +6.53 @4650RPM

Max Gains- HP: +11.44 @4300RPM TQ: +13.97 @4300RPM

Tech Notes: TRD’s performance intake had limited improvements before a reflash with the EcuTek came to the rescue. The EcuTek unlocked the full performance potential of the intake, producing sizable gains from 3,700 RPM to 7,200 RPM. The EcuTek tune is a must for this intake.
