PURCHASED BY OTHERS



Exhaust System - 2.7(4cyl) & 4.0(V6) Tacoma(05-08)
Exhaust Gasket - 2TR(2.7L 4cyl)(05-10) Tacoma
Pro Flow Exhaust System - 2TR Tacoma (05-10)
LCE Full Color Catalog
K&N 77 Series/FIPK - Tacoma (05-10) 2.7L



















so my truck can pull just as much as a v6 rav4? thats fine with me.

and besides towing capacity has alot to do with chassis, suspension and weight of the vehicle as well. 3500 lbs is quite a bit for a 3400 lbs truck.


no to be an asshole or anything...they stole that dyno from doug thorley because iv had that dyno saved on my desktop for the past forever....thats the stock dyno for a 2.7 with nothing to do with lce engineering. i highly doubt that lce got the exact same number as lce. i know dynos stock are dynos stocks, but its not aways the case.

yes manuals will have more power than auto because the manual transmission is less "complex" with fewer lower losing parts.

yes this is the baseline for the 2.7 (2tr) motor

true sorry i was just trying to demonstrate the difference between flywheel hp and wheel hp. thats all yah dynos differ and all but idk, they could have the same dyno type. u never know. lol or your right and theyre just lazy and copied

no worries man. had a few drinks last night and felt like arguing hahah but yes that dyno is out our 2tr with an auto tranny. the manual will give you slightly larger output numbers.

and as they might have the same dyno and blah blah i highly doubt all the high and low points would match up exactly perfect

Of course the other issue is stopping the load.

The Porche 911 has a six cylinder engine. The 4 cylinder counterpart was the 912 which hasn't been around for about 30 years.

Everything matters in some way to tow capacity, concerning the mechanics. It's going to be limited by the weakest aspect, and i dont think the truck is week either.
Simply , it would tow more if it had the v-6, but then the wheelbase and weight transer limit its capacity. I dont know for sure , but i'm assuming the brakes and axle are as strong as the v-6s ,x-fer case too.
I think the 4 cyl engine is some sort of marvel , i dont expect it to get up a certain hill in 5th gear ,but it does. So far I'm getting my money's worth.

My guess is your 2.4L is around 2500 lb capacity, check the owners manual and other owners though.

Is the 3,500lbs towing capacity the numbers for 4x4 or is it less?

People always forget about how a machine is geared...alot of it has to do with the gearing!.

3500lbs is about 1500lbs more than I need.

OEM tow rating capacity is all about the vehicle size, weight, and spring capacity, not so much the engine size.

BTW: I can highly recommend U-haul for a hitch for the Taco. Had one on my '09, and it was very high quality. Looked like a relabeled Valley hitch. Installation was simple and clean. IIRC, it was $135.

Dhk! Great post, I fully agree. I'm driving a '93 S10 while waiting for my Taco to come in next month. I pulled a fully loaded U-haul 6x12 trailer about 250 miles. My s-dime has a V6 automatic, my previous '09 Taco was a 4 cyl. Although the S10 has more power than the Taco did, pulling the same trailer (fully loaded) the Tacoma felt much more capable and safe with the trailer than the S10 did.

Also keep in mind that a longer wheel base will make towing more stable. When I was figuring out which truck to buy to tow our fifth wheel years ago the RV industry had a standard for vehicle wheel base to trailer length and weight ratio. A 4x4 will reduce the towed weight capacity a little also. I went to rent a u-haul car hauler one time. I entered our truck as 4x4 with the towed vehicle and they wouldn't rent it to me. Entered our truck as 2x4 and was good to go. Don't know why. Weight of T-case,front end and xtra friction???

The connection point and vehicle weight distribution of Tractors and 5th wheels are very different than standard automobiles.

Wheel base is a factor and 5th wheels and tractors place the "tongue" load forward of the rear axle which distributes the weight on the frame and axles better. The sportscar with a rearward positioned hitch didn't click with me and I agree with your point that a longer trailer handles well even though the car has a short wheelbase. My point is that load weights, load position, and contact points (wheelbase) are significant factors in towing and have a relationship with one another in the towing package. Been there and got some stupid stories I hope I don't repeat. Thankfully little or no damage occurred.

Just my 2cents of trailer experience.
