K&N's 63-9037 air intake system is designed to be easily installed with a few simple tools and a little time. The 63-9037 air intake system comes with all of the required components needed to bolt on an additional estimated 8.6 horsepower at 5100 RPM and 8.5 ft-lb or torque at 3700 RPM to this bad boy without modification to the body or engine bay.

The 63-9037 comes with an aerodynamic air intake tube that is engineered specifically for the Toyota Tacoma V6's computer and mass air sensor setup so the stock mass air sensor can be transferred without hassle or the need to reprogram the computer. The other main components include the K&N RF-1042XD high flow air filter and a powder coated heat shield. The heat shield is designed to help keep the nice outside cold air that helps the engine perform from being heat soaked by the hot under hood temperatures. In addition, the air intake system also comes with application specific brackets, crank case vent hose and fitting, as well as all of the hoses, hose clamps and hardware needed to install.
