Tune`06Taco / W FI V8

I`m going to keep this vehicle.
At least as long as I can get gas for a V6.
My `62 GMC V6 and the `74 360 V8 Power Wagon 3/4 run fine.

I am 61. And have cancer. This is my last PU.
The Sheriff gave me some out of date vest kevlar panals to stick in the doors. Toyota installed brush guards front and rear. They do not come down enough in front to do the spin out the bad guy bump. Perhaps I can weld or bolt on a lower guard. They quit making real bumpers.

OK,The first thing to do, and the cheapest, is to install headers and straight pipes. It is more power and MPG cheap. That was a bit loud on the 360 so I cut them for glass packs. Which burn out and then you have an expansion chamber. This is tolerable to me. It rumbles a bit and will roar if you punch it. But in normal driving it is not too loud.
My 10,000 ml. is coming up so I would like to have my stuff together and wound tight. If we are going with headers the shop needs to know what and when to order.
The K&N filter was mentioned. It improved my BMW Boxer Motor enough to pay for itself.
The carbs had to be re calibrated and leaned a bit. I gained some fuel mileage and power.
Will this help a Tacoma? I don`t know.
I have 7,700 mls. on it now.
It is my last PU. I may as well make The War Wagon a good one.
The weapons mounts are mostly installed.
I was waiting for a better shot gun and rifle overhead rack. Which the Dept. just got in.

War Wagon

The Sheriff buys Big Sky mounts. Check them out.
You can wear a real hat in a Taco.
Beucoupe room.
This is my third cancer from Dioxin. It is too late to even care anymore.
Another good deal from the US Govt.

State your preference. Fight, run or play; it is all the same to me.
Hunting and fishing are sports. Unlike games.

I cannot find a place for the blast panals for the 2.5" rockets.
