I doubt it. I mean you are kinda force feeding your airbox some. I'm going to reset my ecu and keep some records and see how it goes.
Then there's that whole "drag" effect in the wind so if it does get a bit more mpg, it's probably offset by the fact that it's not very aerodynamic.

No. However I think maybe some "turbo" stickers would look really cool on it.

$2800.
I could have talked her down some. Gas gauge and speedometer dont work, but I can barely find a spot of rust on the truck anywhere.
Drove it to work (35miles rnd trip) a few times and it seems to run pretty good. The 3.0 has plenty of power. As a matter of fact I think its the same hp as the taco. 150hp. But it pulls harder being a 5 speed.

Looks like my sas on the taco is put off for the time being and back to dd duties. I can get an ifs eliminator kit and sas this for 1/3 the price I can for the taco.

only real plans are to get those lavender stripes painted, I'm getting to much shit at work for them. lol.

Washed the rims down really good and sprayed on some self etching primer. About 5 coats. Then another 5 of satin black.

What size of KC lights are you running? I've got an AP bumper coming in and I'm looking for lights. Wanted to go IPF 968's, but they're listed as 7" lights and 6" in the max per AP's site.
