Only if you know of other tuning methods or options, would you ask not to have it flashed.

The TRD reflash is a very safe tune, and hands free....even works up to 9 psi, and quite well.

TRD s/c only comes with ~6 psi out of the box.
This was my 1st gen S/C on my 99'
pushed it to about 7psi.



But the 3.4 is a different animal.

The 4.0 TRD s/c is a better designed s/c IMO.

Piggy backs work....some what, but not well on the Tacoma. In-line EMS' such as the X-1(no longer developed) or UCON(new product and very nice), work much much better than a piggy back. Lots more control over engine functions, and usually, in these two cases, very easy to use for the end user.

I have a standalone. Not bragging, just saying the first ProEFI Pro128 on a 1GR Tacoma. Loads of features, and control over everything. Since it, the file exists for all others who want to use it, as well a plug n play harness availability.


The point to keep in mind however, is that as an EMS moves up in control-ability, so does the price. As such, it is easy to see why so many go for the reflash at $75-90, versus my full standalone at $3200. And I haven't even purchased all of the available sensors.

That depends. Pre Snakebite or Snakebite? Refine the question more please.

I agree. Plus, I don't think the 3.4 came with an intercooler.

No, it's based on bore, stroke and clearance volume. It's the ratio of combustion chamber's largest and smallest capacity.

Torspd has aftermarket pistons and I think it bumped his compression up to 11:1 (not 100% on that).

Lower means that you can handle higher cylinder pressures from the added boost, with less risk of detonation.
I see, makes sense.
