Welcome to TW! I am new to Tacomas, but I do have the new version of the 2.7L. I am also interested in the EGR-bypass/shut-off. It wouldn't hurt to do some other modifications either.

If you want something simple for your intake, a Deckplate mod. This is easier on the 1st Generation Tacomas as they have a wider surface area to install the plate on.

If you are looking for something a bit more powerful (and cooler looking), a CAI (cold air intake) is a great idea!

As far as exhausts, I would look at our performance section. Check this out.

hope this helps!

you are talking about the EGR Valve? I would be VERY interested to see some pics of this. Remember you can post pictures here in the Photo Gallery.

Good luck!

Welcome to TW. Don't know about on your gen. of Tacoma, but on older toyotas you can block off the EGR without any problems.

Not too many. I believe we are the only two from Maine. Maybe a meeting in MA or VT so those a little south can make it.
