Thank you!

Switching to MT-90 is a MUST IMO if you have the 6-speed. It smoothes everything and makes shifts more silky. Drain and fill was SUPER easy. 3 bottles MAX.

I think I'm going to get the TRD short shifter as well. The throws on the 6-speed 2nd gens are ridiculously long......coming from previously owning 1st gen 5 speed v6.

Ya, I hear ya on the throws. I tried the URD short shifter and thought it made the throws a ton better but reverse was just too much of a bear to get into. It didnt feel like the kind of stress I wanted on my trans. I tried it for a few hundred miles and pulled it. Been happy since just driving it like a truck... PM me if you'd like to give it a try.

Yeah my friend has the URD on his '07 6sp and I really didn't like the engagement(or lack-thereof lol) for reverse. When I bought my truck in March, I sat in another lot pickup outfitted with the optional TRD short shifter. I liked that one better, and I should've just bought it then!

Long throw 6 sp + drive by wire + high clutch engagement definitely work against you when you're trying to row quickly lol.

Glad to hear I'm not the only one who thought it was bad.
I agree that the combination you noted above makes for a tough setup to move quick with. Keeps me driving responsible i guess.

Yeah, not too impressed with the 6-speed in the 2nd gens, but being this is my 3rd Toyota pickup I've ever owned(all manuals)---I could not see myself driving an automatic one EVER! *sigh* If only they made the 1st gen double cab/short beds in a manual I would probably be singing a different song. Gotta love the additional size though over the 1st gens for what it's worth.

Haha yeah prepping for the 2.8 stealth URD eventually.

URD fuel pump & external filter go in next Saturday and hopefully the URD 170° t-stat as well.

Y-pipe & AFE SI intake going on this week.

Also hoping to get the TRD quick shifter installed soon as well.

Called Doug Thorley last week to confirm CARB exempt cert on their '12-'13 short tube headers so those will be next....then will wrap up powertrain mods with the 2.8 pulley.

Then she goes on beefy midtravel suspension!

So I know you were saying you haven't noticed if the SC has helped with your mileage, but hypothetically speaking shouldn't it help improve your MPG if you drive with a civil foot? While giving you that absurd amount of power?

I STILL have yet had the discipline to do the "right foot in moderation" mileage study, but hopefully I can calm down through the next tank of gas lol.

What I will say is this...

With the SAME clutch/gas inputs I had when the truck was completely stock, I am now driving waaaaay too fast. So basically, I've had to dial back my touch on the gas a bit to keep it "normal" around town.

So I will concede that HYPOTHETICALLY () yes, with moderate/civilized driving, your MPG's >may< improve since you can get going along with much less gas pedal input.

Dotted line passing on 2-way traffic roads no longer needs a downshift from 6th gear now. It's really that responsive!

It is times like this that I am kicking myself in the head for not getting a stick.... Stupid automatics.

But one day, one day... I am hoping to go for either a SC or new tranny and get a 6spd. I know those are crazy things to say, but I am determined.

Haha, hey man more power to you!!!! I say DOOO ITTTTT.


Honestly,

The 6-speed in the 2nd gens, although vastly improved since it's 1st iterations on the 2005's, are definitely not as nice as I had imagined. Coming from owning a '94 22RE Toyota pickup 5-speed, and a '95.5 3VZFE(3.4 v6) Toyota Tacoma 5-speed[in my sig], the 6 speed feels really unrefined---even in it's latest form in my '13. I was really disappointed, but it's whatever.

I will NEVER own an automatic Toyota pickup unless it's a Tundra. Just personal preference. I think it's the combination of the drive-by-wire throttle, high(relatively speaking) clutch engagement, and HUGE rowing gaps between the gears of the 6 speed that makes it a little less than ideal for me. Don't get me wrong, the gearing is REALLY nice to have though. Being able to let 'em loose to redline will always be why I come back to a manual trans.
