K&N vs. TRD filter

What is your opinion on which is better. Is there any difference in gains or problems with either of them. I realize that power gains are minimal but i heard that any other kind of Intake would void a manufacturers warranty. My 2000 GTS is certified pre-owned and i do not want to void the warranty. Sorry if this is a repost but i am new to Performance mods and need some help.

^^ I think TRD is $20 more for the name on the box.

1. They are the same product.
2. They can't void your warranty because you bought a new Air Filter. smile

True, and true. And like CID said, the TRD will cost you more for the exact same thing, so just get a K&N. rice

So there is no way a CAI or SRI could void my warranty?

no it will not void your warranty. If something goes wrong with your car,technically, they have to prove the Intake caused it for it to not be covered. That doesnt mean they wont TRY and tell you different. You can always take the Intake off if you need to go to toyota.
