A special edition 2008 Toyota Sequoia Platinum Edition, built for Toyota and Sony Mobile Electronics was a feature vehicle at SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) near the Sony Xplod booth at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Nevada.

It was modified with the following products:

K&N air intake system
Doug Thorley Headers “Try-Y” ceramic coated exhaust headers
Custom fabricated cat-black exhaust system
Ground Force lowering springs (1.5” drop- front)
Modified stock air-ride suspension
26X10 KMC Slides chrome wheels
Toyo Proxes S/T II 305/30R26 performance tires
Um-Nitza Halo/HID head lamp conversion
Sony Xplod audio/video entertainment system
Monster Cable wiring and distribution
Dynamat acoustical material
Street Glow LED lighting (interior and exterior)

“We used the K&N polished intake kit to enhance the platinum edition Toyota,” said Rodney Findley. “When I worked on the car I retained the heat shield to keep engine heat away from the K&N air filter. K&N is known for its superiority. I have the same K&N air intake on my 2008 Toyota Tundra Crew Max and I’ve seen about a 1.7 MPG increase since I installed it. It’s important when you calculate your yearly driving distance, it all adds up to savings.”

Findley said he contacted K&N to use on his project vehicle because of K&N's reputation, history of winning races and quality products.

His next shows will be the World of Wheels and the Spring Break Nationals in Daytona, Florida. In the meantime Findley will participate in the Pinewood Derby. It is a Boy Scout event that is popular nationwide. “We do a United Way charity event at work every year and build 8-12 cars to race them on a pinewood derby track,” said Findley. “They are simply powered by gravity and there are certain rules to follow. This year I had some extra K&N stickers left and I thought it would be fun to put them on.”
