I find it hard to believe that this many people voted to let high school dropout techs work on their vehicle, when most of you are probably capable to do it yourselves. o well
Can you post a video so I can hear what it sounds like?.....I'm thinking of getting it for my Tacoma..... Also.....How many hours did it take for you to install it? :roll eyes:

Thanks in advance.....

Dealership mechanics went to college and got certified. The highschool drop outs you speak of are the ones working at Jiffy Lube.

Going to college doesn't certify somebody in my book. Nobody takes care of items that are not owned by them as well as they take care of items they own. If I do my own work, I know it's done right the first time

Dealership mechanics went to collage, not to be a mechanic they didn't.

Exactly lmao. I only let "certified mechanics" touch my truck if it's absolutely necessary. I.e. ECU flash, or jobs requiring special tools like adjust the backlash on the differential. I don't want my pumpkin to detonate lol.


I've done everything to my truck in my own garage, easily as hell with basic hand tools
