The stock intake is cold air. Search secondary filter removal. For a blower look at URD.

Honestly if you are going to spend money on a blower you should have just bought the V6.

regular cabs don't have the V6 as an option, not matter what trim level.

and for those of us like the OP, who like a REAL truck with two doors, the 2TR-FE 4 Cyl is the only option.

Ya you might want to double check the URD site...it is a supercharger not turbo.

Yes I know this.

Real truck just because of 2 doors? That's the stupidest crap I have ever heard. If you want to go that way then a real truck has 10 wheels and a CAT engine.

Have to agree. But fact is that if you just want a single cab, then the 4 banger is your only option. And for the record, the 4 banger WITH the URD blower will put more power to the ground than a stock V6 will..

don't be salty cuz you have a suv with a mini bed.

historically trucks have been two door, single cab trucks; only within the past decade has this breed of half truck/half car been (the doublecab truck) become popular.

forget about cold air intakes they are a complete waste on our 2.7ltr engines. Christian hit the nail on the head-just remove the secondary filter and replace the primary with a afe pro dry. If you could find a supercharger it would be way to costly. save you money and buy a header and regear to 4.56's and you will feel a good torque increase.

But if you do a lot of highway driving, overgearing will lower mpg

When I went from stock wheels and tires to BF Goodrich KM2's (265 75 16) my gas milage went down to 17mpg. After I re-geared I actually gained 1mpg . My gas milage is a hair over 18mpg on long highway trips at an average speed of 75mph. The torque gained (ie: off roading,going up hills and off the line) was well worth it IMHO. Note: my initial milage was about 21mpg before adding 350lbs of armor and adding the km2's
