If you’ve purchased a 2016 Toyota Tacoma with a i-FORCE 3.5 L V6 engine, you’ve bought a truck that’s as tough and durable as it looks. The Tacoma produces 278 horsepower.
However, when compared to Chevy’s slightly larger 3.6 L engine in the Colorado, which makes 305 horsepower at the flywheel, that’s a 27 horsepower difference over the Tacoma — which is more significant than you might first think.
Want to catch up? A fast, simple, and inexpensive way to increase the power of your Tacoma engine by an estimated eight rear-wheel horsepower is the installation of the AIRAID MXP air intake system.
The entire AIRAID MXP air intake system is designed to maintain proper mass air flow readings and calibration through the use of extensive computer modeling. Part of the secret is the cold air dam, which is a replacement one-piece roto-molded air box that addresses some of the shortcomings of the restrictive OEM design.
Additionally, this MXP air intake system has a built-in velocity stack, which further promotes airflow. while incoming cold air from outside the vehicle is directed through a new air intake tube with a smooth, low-restriction interior thanks to its construction of cross-linked, high-density polyethylene. The MXP air box incorporates an aluminum lid that shields the air filter from hot engine air and provides easy access to the filter when service is required.
Another critical factor is the AIRAID premium air filter providing outstanding air flow and filtration through its reusable, washable premium conical air filters. The air filter is constructed of multiple layers of cotton and synthetic non-woven material filter media resulting in a superior filtration system. Maintenance of the system is simple: clean your AIRAID filter every 30,000 to 50,000 miles for normal driving, or more often if you’re driving off-road or in heavy dust conditions.
Installation of the AIRAID MXP air intake system is fast and simple, with highly-detailed instructions. You need only a few basic tools and not more than a couple of hours to increase the power and responsiveness of your 3.5L Toyota Tacoma.
