Performance

I have a stock everything 2002 PreRunner doublecab and was wondering what are the first things you guys would do to improve the performance, such as better mpg or increase horsepower and torch?

Well... Intake, headers and exhaust.
I would go with the deck plate mod and a AFE pro dry filter. It has gotten great reviews.

Or... you could just go for a Supercharger first!!!

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Just what they said. Headers, exhaust, and a supercharger.

well I just got a set of discoverer st's put on this morning. I geuss my next project will be something to do with the exhaust. I don't really know a lot about the parts so I don't really know where to start.
