New guy

Well first time toyota owner and taco owner!! Got myself a new 2013 DC Offroad taco!

Just wanted to say hi to everyone and give a shout out to all my fellow Oregon taco's!!!

Going to be doing some upgrades over the course of the next couple months

-Blackhousing retrofit headlights
-nerf bars
-some sort of small lift, spacers and add a leaf most likely
-upgraded audio (component speakers, small sub, all amped)
-sport hood swap hopefully

Thats it for now, more to come late Im willing to bet lol. I have a nasty habit to snowball projects, just ask me about my 40k 240sx lol

Thanks and look foward to chating with you guys

-Chad

well, just to start with its dyno at 521whp lol
-its got an rb25det swapped
-built head with tomie cams
-a garret gt35r40 turbo
-AEM stand alone ECU
-1000cc injectors with a full rebuilt fuel delivery system
- Greddy intake manifold
-AP racing Big Brake kit (4 piston one)
-about every god damn suspension part know to man has been swapped out along with JIC gold coilovers (the 10ways)
-have cage (5 point) custom built)
-Cusco 1.5 LSD
-many many more things

also this project was started before any RB swap kits had been made, so everything was custom made and fit to install (engine mounts, tanny mounts, custom drive shaft, hell we had to make custom headers to bend around steering column)

Remember alot of that money to was the labor of stuff I could not do myself. And ALOTTTTTTTT of dyno tuning time. built it over 8 years
