I dont think this counts as an update but more of like a concern that came up that I noticed. So I wanted to share this with all of you!

Now this picture has two fuel gauges which are going on the fuel regulator but one gave me quite an uncertain feeling.



Now the gauge on the left was the first gauge i bought for 20$ and the one on the right was the second for 50$.

Now the issue is on the gauge on the left, can you find exactly where 10 PSI, 30 PSI or 50 PSI stands? Now try imagining that with 43.5 PSI with how awkward the spacing is (LOOK CAREFULLY).

The gauge on the right makes things WAAYY simpler to find those exact PSI marks. So i guess dont go tooo cheap on gauges ! lol

Well today put in some of the LED's i ordered from Whitebeauty (Mark)

They are probably the most easiest ones out there but its the high power reverse lights and third brake light.

So first was the third brake light, pretty straight forwad with removing the two hex screws and taking off the red lenses.

So here you have the regular halogen bulb (left) then the LED bulb (right)



So the bulbs pop out and so on so forth



Put the red lenses back in and there you go got a third LED brake light






Now for the reverse lights you'll have to remove your tail lights by taking out theses 2 - 10mm bolts. (This is pretty straight forward as well)



So once you go the bolts out you'll have to pop the lights out from the bottom and they should come out pretty easy



Then twist and pull out the reverse bulb. Pull out the halogen bulb and put in the high power bulb in. Twist the bulb back in.





Once you've got that done pop back in the tail lights and screw back in the 10mm bolts and do the same to the other side!

Heres the difference between the regular halogen (left) to the high power bulbs (right)



Here they are installed



I know this is all simple stuff for most but you never know who can use the info on this lol


As well im working on the exhaust video, got the first half done already and does it ever sound terribly raspy! haha The other half will be done once i get that resonator in!

Alright the day fianlly came to do some cosmetic work on the truck! I had the grill and the headlights installed and they look awesome!! As well a few more LED's with a minor mistake.

Before





After





These are the LED's (Map & Dome)



Here's a few more night time shots





Here's the minor mistake that happened with the LED's



All the LED's were suppose to stay blue, not red and blue haha

The headlights output feel 10 times better then my old ones! They are incredible! So i'l show the low beam and high beam after a few minor adjustments.

Low Beams



High Beams

I notice myself buying goodies for my truck through the vendors here a lot more then going to a shop. Thats a good thing since they can keep up their services up here on the websites. To all the vendors out here, gotta say your making Tacomas/X-Runners look awesome

Here's Coupes TRD Battery Hold Down piece.! Another nice add-on to the engine bay

Here's the before




And the after

Bring on the BOOOOST!!

Today i was able to install URD's 2.8 pulley. I'm sooo exited to keep testing out the pulley on my truck. Gotta thank my dad for lending me part of his shop (for i dont have to do this outside) and for giving me a hand on the install.

Lets get started with what i did to install the pulley

First thing was fiding out all the tooling and scope out what i needed to find. I found out its MUCH EASIER pulling off the skid plates to access the tensionner pulley.

To take off the skid plate there are 4-12mm bolts that hold it up, once unscrewed the skid plate will simply fall out. I did this in my driveway ealier today and it was COLD!!







Later that day i drove to my dads shop after he got off work. First thing was first is to remove the belt. The instructions said something about a 1/2" ratchet when it was meant to say 1/2" DRIVE ratchet for it can fit into the small square for the tensioning pulley. I did need to use a snipe to pull the rachet towards me so it can pull the pulley upwards.





Now with the belt out of the way it was time to remove the OEM pulley. I went out to my local supply store to buy a 5 TON puller. *ive been warned to buy a 5 TON and NOT the 2 or 3 TON, since the 5 TON will have an easier time pulling the OEM pulley.*



Here's the pulley in action (sorry about a blurry picture but you get the idea) I needed to use a snipe since the pulley was on pretty tight once it broke loose it was easy sailing from there



Then the OEM pulley removed





With the OEM pulley removed it was time to prep the s/c shaft. I used scotchbright to make sure it was clean from debris and have a nice smooth finish. *With that done added a few drops of conventionnal motor oil to lubricate when the pulley gets pressed on.*

My father and i had a mis-communication on how to heat up URD's pulley. I told him the water has to stay at a steady boil when he thought a kettle would work just fine. With what i mentionned we came up with this rig to keep the water at a boil.



This is probably the most rugged way to do this but this was all we had at the shop! LOL!!!

I dont have any pictures of URD's press on tool since it was a race against time to make sure the pulley didnt have enough time to cool off for it would get stuck onto the s/c shaft. This part here was the one i was most concerned about since i couldn't efford to make a mistake and restart all over again.

When the pulley did get aligned with the s/c shaft i had my dad hold the pulley with a strap wrench. This was to prevent the pulley from spinning while i was pressing it on. Once it started it did get tight but we did get it on.

*Make sure to have the pulley flush with the outside edge of the s/c shaft for proper routing of the belt*

Once the pulley was flush you can remove the press on tool and put the belt back on.

*Before*



*After*





This is my most up to date picture of "underneath the hood" (Yes i know its dirty)

Well after driving the truck some more today you do notice a gain on the supercharger with URD's 2.8 pulley. Pretty stoked that stage 2 of the supercharger/engine is now complete.

I'm not to sure what's my next bigger upgrade will be for my truck, after that 2.8 pulley most upgrades ive got now will be cosmetic changes. I've had three ideas but some will have to look further into it with more details.

1) A wanna be x-runner -> drop it with the tundra racing lowering kit from URD and find some ground fx pieces. Some of them would have to be custom made since I have a double cab. How cool would that be!? A wanna be Xrunner that's a double cab haha

2) I want more horsepower but I think I'm stuck where I'm at, I'd like to get a 2.7 or even a 2.55 pulley. With no tuner and the need for bigger injectors it just won't happen

3) Lighter aftermarket wheels? Dunno if it would make a difference for getting faster times from a 20" wheel down to like a 18"? but I'd like a rim that I can use all year round. Having two pairs is getting annoying to change every spring/fall

What's up with that!?

Yeah, it does. But that is what the wink eye is for. A Haltech Platinum 1000 or AEM standalone would probably easier to deal with in your area though. Those are more common than the ProEFI.

But again, I know that you really don't want to cut into your harness either. So it puts you at an impasse, as far as future power gains are concerned..... o_O

Yeah it's driving me crazy that I can't get my engine to the horsepower I want to get to! I'm getting close I can feel it lol need a dyno soon too! I think a road trip is in order pretty soon

Finding that right shop to that properly would be tricky, since it would one hell of a costly mess if they messed it up somehow. The shops that are up here probably never did anything like that since some shops are surprised to see a supercharger on the truck haha that tells you they didn't do a whole lot.
