Well with either engine you will get sounds from an intake and exhaust. You won't feel a power difference though. Search the forums.

Looking around the ONLY thing that changes hp or torque on the 1gr is forced induction.

You NEVER get cheap horsepower on anything. Though K&N advertises 10 hp on the tacoma for their filtercharger. They're absolutely full of shit. Who wants to start a class action against them? Ruining engines AND lying?

If you read their fine print, you see they say "up to...." Which means you can get anything from 0 to 10 hp, depending on engine, conditions, etc.

Dynomax Super Turbo Muffler will help hp a little, ain't going to sound good though.

Flowmaster 40 Series Muffler will sound good, ain't going to help hp though.

CAI's haven't been known to do much for gains, they look fancy and sound nice though. Some would debate that a re-usable drop in or CAI filter is cost effective and provides better flow and filtering protection.

More foot on gas pedal will add horsepower and torque, and will sound better, may decrease gas mileage however.

Good luck!

I learned that in high school business/marketing. 'Up to' only means not over. Earn up to $1000 a day. If you only earned 35 cents, you are on your way 'up to' $1000.

Yes, it was a re-seller sight that was quoting straight 10. But K&N should police that stuff.

They also might want to put in there "may not actually filter what you need it to".

What do you mean ruining engines???? My bro has had one on his 03 RSX since new, still pulls hard. Never heard of any problems except sucking ip puddles.
