Gus's 2004 4 Banger Build

Got the truck in May of 2008 (don't have any original pictures.)Its a 2004 SR5 4x4 2.7L. Originally i had no desire to mod my truck in any way, but then i found TW haha. I figured since i have enough done to my truck now i can actually start a build thread and u guys can see some progression haha.

First mod was the WVU Decal which obviously adds horsepower and sexual attraction to your cousins


Then came the K&N CAI


Then i put on a Flomaster 40



After that came the front Billy 5100's



Then i decided to go with the black out look and slowly did both bumpers, grill surround, badges, and wheels






It sat like that for almost a year, with the only other mods being the new frame that toyota put in for free, and a new head unit and speakers which i don't have a picture of but will update soon. Once this school year ended and i worked enough i finally saved up for my wheels and tires

Pro Comp 8069's with 32x11.5 Wild Country XTX tires.





I tinted my tails as well


I got my Rear Billy 5100's put in today but don't have any pics yet and the spacer has been difficult to put on but i will see if pep boys can do it 2moro when i go in for my alignment. Heres a pic of them tho when they arrived from wheelers

yea, yay we don't have to watch Jeff Mullen's pathetic predictability that he calls "an offense" anymore.

Ever figure out a part number??

I have a 3.4L and the salt has eaten my stock muffler, I don't want anything to loud, I was thinking either flowmaster 50 delta or the magnaflow however I cannot find a specific part number for the magnaflow??


I am in Morgantown as well...

its a 4x9x14 inch magnaflow that i got. 2 1/4 in/out, i don't remember the part number but go to magnaflow's website and look at all the 4x9x14 with the 2.25" in and outs and you'll find it. Sounds so much better than my old flowmaster and the truck revs smoother and has a slightly increased throttle response.

it sounds soo much better, worth the price just for the sounds not to mention the longevity. I'm debating dumping the exhaust after the axle since my pipe looks like shit and prob hurts the performance slightly
