Deck Plate Mod

Decided to do the deck plate mod on my 01 Taco and i love it. It changed the tone of my truck, made it crazy loud, and gave me wayy better throttle response. Thanks to all you guys that told me about it.

It's one of the best cheap mods you can do to your truck. Glad you like it!

my air box has the grooves in it, is it still possible to do the deck plate mod and still be able to seal off the deck plate?

I don't remember where I found it, maybe Yotatech forums or CustomTacos, but there's a write up with pictures of the 2.7L airbox getting deck plate mod'd. Just use sensor safe silcone sealant and you're good, and let it sit overnight before you install the airbox and drive the truck.

Ive done it and its great I wish I would have had it when I went to colorado for my truck to breath. You can get them at a marine or boat shop I went to a boat store the guy didn't know what I was talking about but then I found one in his inventory.

Most and I have one that is 4 try to find one that is 3 inch diameter should be good enough.

You can search out this mod at other webs TTORA,YotaTech,CustomTacos etc. its called the ElbowMod
I did that, but still had more gain with the deck plate.

I got just over 5 hp with the Deck plate. Nothing outside the error margine of the dyno with the elbow mod.

The thing I like about the deck plate is that once you put the plate in, it's back to factory stock. I could see if you just cut a hole in the air box and left it like that not doing it, but going the whole way and installing the deckplate makes the change reversible.

When installin gthe deck plate, use a sealant. Run a bead around it, and it should seal everything. I use a "Sensor Safe" Blue RTV.
