Ok, i've looked through the forums and cant seem to find a build up or tune up page for a 2.4l tacoma.
what im getting at is my taco (like some of yours im assuming) is extremely under powered. out here in farmland california we all drive a 1,000 mph and with my little taco i get left in the dust by saturns! also it makes it difficult to merge on the the speedway to get to work, seriously its like a life and death situation every morning!
ok so the bottom line. i am looking for more giddy up for merging, and also i want to be spinning less than 3,000 rpms at 80mph as i commute about 50 miles a day minimum. better performance out ways the fuel economy for me tho im still getting 10 mpg better than my last truck.
ive browsed the net a little bit and come up with a shopping list. i was wondering if you guys have tried any of these products and if so, are they worth it.
1. Cold Air Intake.
K&N 77 SERIES HIGH FLOW PERFORMANCE AIR INTAKE KIT, POLISHED
2.Throttle Body Spacer
STREET PERFORMANCE HELIX POWER TOWER PLUS THROTTLE BODY SPACER
3.Performance Mass Airflow Sensor
JET CHIPS PERFORMANCE POWR-FLO MASS AIR SENSOR
4.Exhaust - suggestions? the local muffler shop will install a knock off flowmaster for $95 bucks is it actually worth it to go with a more expensive one?
5. perhaps gearing or taller tires? for fuel economy?
6.or do i need to find a s/c for the 2.4?
let me know what you think. am i screwed?
