Toyota has upped the ante in light truck styling with their most recent Tacoma, offering what may well be the most aggressive of all half-ton pickups. If you’ve purchased one of these great looking 2016 or 2017 Toyota Tacomas with the i-FORCE 3.5L V6 engine, you now own a truck that’s as tough and durable as it as stylish.

The 3.5L V6, Toyota’s internal name 2GR-FKS, is an engine that’s both dependable as well as cleverly engineered. It DOHC and 4 valves per cylinder, with fuel delivery via direct-injection. The engine timing is based on the Atkinson-cycle with VVT-iW (Variable Valve Timing-intelligent Wide) intake and VVTi (Variable Valve Timing-intelligence) exhaust. The 2GR-FKS produces 278 horsepower.

However, when compared to Chevrolet’s slightly larger 3.6L V6 engine available in the Colorado, the Chevy has a 27 horsepower advantage over the Tacoma.

A fast, simple, and inexpensive way to increase the power of your 3UR-FE engine by an estimated eight rear-wheel horsepower is with the installation of an AIRAID 511-309 MXP air intake system. While eight horsepower is less than the 27 difference between the Chevy and Toyota, keep in mind that comparison is measured at the flywheel. The estimated horsepower gain is at the rear wheels and a significant portion of any engine’s power is consumed by the transmission, differential, and tires when measured at the wheels.

The system air-to-fuel ratios eliminating the need for recalibration after installation.

The entire 511-309 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, which is constructed of multiple layers of non-oiled synthetic non-woven filter media. The oil-less filter is highly recommended for everyday street driving. Maintenance of the 511-309 is simple: clean your AIRAID filter with AIRAID 790-558 premium dry filter cleaning solution every 30,000 to 50,000 miles for normal driving, or more frequently if you’re driving off-road or in heavy dust conditions,.
