1999 Toyota Rav-4 High Performance UPGRADES Part# 7!!! 12-28-2011
This video's purpose is to show my plans of installing the K&N cold air
intake system. The very 1st thing I need to do is remove the
windshield-washer fluid canister, then the top section of the factory
The 1999 Toyota Rav-4's factory design of it's air intake "opening/scoop"
actually allows "cooler" air to the air filter box! This surprises me, as I
felt the opening for the intake funnel was positioned at least 4-inches
into the engine's bay.
My plans are basically to modify the factory air intake tube (mounted
bottom/outside of Rav-4 to factory air-filter-box) to accept the
"flex-pipe" K&N supplies, and route it outside the Rav-4, and install/clamp
on the "air scoop" supplied by K&N.
The factory "ribbed-rubber" air intake tube leading from the air filter box
to the 2.0-liter's throttle-body, will be trashed and replaced by a "larger
diameter" custom aluminum upper-intake plenum with ports for the sensor and
crankcase ventilation filter as well.
This "simple" modification to a 1999 Rav-4 will produce around a "10" horsepower-gain. The
Rav-4's factory Exhaust will also be
trashed from cat-convertor leading off the factory "1-1/2-inched Round Exhaust Headers"
all the way back in favor of a "custom" 2-1/4-inched free-flowing Exhaust ending with a Borla Muffler. This Exhaust upgrade accompanied by the "true"
Cold-Air-Induction System, may net at least an additional "20-horsepower."
In closing, I stated in the video that I've been "lazy" ... truth is ...
SCIATICA has been "kicking my ass!" My left leg feels like they're pulling
veins, tendons, bone, muscle, and my nerves out of my leg. The Meds
prescribed do nothing.
Updates will follow.

What I have to say about the 2001 Toyota RAV4: For 2001 the RAV4 grows in
size and features new edgy styling. The RAV4 was the first SUV to pretty
much spark the car based SUV market, then it's main arch rival the Honda
CR-V came one year later after the RAV4 debuted and then it became a war
between the 2 Japanese brands. The Honda CR-V will offer more room, but the
RAV4 is more of a cute-ute then the CR-V. Many features are available on
the RAV4 and we do recommend the RAV4 over the CR-V for this year. All in
all very great car from Toyota, just needs a little more power under the
