Ok so I know this has somewhat been discussed. I just bought a new 2007 Tacoma Regular cab 4x4 2.7 manual. So I have 1500 miles on it and I've been getting about 22mpg average on a tank with some city and some highway. Which i'm pretty happy with however i'm thinking about changing a few things and seeing if I can do better.
Has anyone with the 2.7 liter 4x4 put a different muffler or intake on it? I'm thinking about putting a K&N cold air intake kit on it along with a borla XR-1 muffler with the stock piping.
How about putting synthetic oil in the rear differential? Anyone noticed a difference there?
So far I really like the truck, I have a 1993 mercury capri that weighs 2200lbs and has 300hp and I was afraid I was just going to drive myself crazy with how slow it is, but its really not that bad. Its definately not a 12 second car but it will move in traffic.
Ok anyone have any opinions on what to get for a front bumper/grill guard? I want something I can hook a winch up to and I'd rather not spend $800 on it any suggestions? I'm thinking about getting out the TIG and making something myself.
