Fast Taco

I wanted to find out what I could do to my 2010 4cyl Taco to make it a speed demon? Turbo, intake, blowback valves (for the cool ass sound), etc....

You don't belong on this sentence. I was asking for some positive feedback.

x2, you bought a pickup truck with a small engine and expect it to be fast?? Maybe you should have purchased the X-runner or a sports car instead...

A turbo will help your cause but if you want a speed demon, you started with the wrong base vehicle.

its funny cause many a 4cyl turbo tacoma is faster then an x-runner an you can always do all the suspension an brake mods to a 4 cyl 5 lug that you can do to the x-runner so you would have a lighter better handling truck then the x-runner not to mention better balance and power to weight ratio. hell i think even the "x" brace that makes an x-runner an x-runner will bolt up same with the front braces

Just curious, but why turn a 4 cylinder into a "racer", isn't the point of the 4 cylinder to get better gas mileage?

I-4 Engine, get your local shop to make you custom headers, slap on a turbo and you're set

Why not have both? If you can keep your foot light even with a turbocharger or supercharger you will still get good milage usually better then n/a but only if you dont mash the gas every chance you get

Faster than a NA x-runner only . Not a blown one ! The x-brace will also fit a pre-runner

just saying its kinda redundant to mod the 4 to out quick a 6 or 8. However if I plan to keep my 4 cyl forever I may look into some type of future turbo diesel. If it becomes a LTtoy truck

Probably thinking of all the 4cyl Vtec type racers. Can be done.
