horsepower/gas mileage increase

To maximize horsepower and fuel mileage would it be best to install cold air intake with a chip and high flow exhaust?? also how do you determine which chip to install if you change to cold air intake?

Get your ECU calibrated don't think you can buy a plastic chip and make your truck basically faster and better mpg

The myth that intake and exhaust help mpg is false.

a chip and intake and exhaust will get you substantially more horsepower and mpg after you get a new engine and throw the other stuff away.


but seriously, chips do crap
intakes are usually crap
exhausts get minimal gains


forced induction is the only real way to get a noticeable gain, but then bye bye mpgs, cause you don't buy a corvette to watch grass grow

I am going all in on horse power. And could give a shit about gas mileage. You will gain nothing size able or noticeable unless you put down 2k+ and then you can start burning more dead dinosaur juices.

Increase in HP=Trade Taco for Tundra

Increase in MPG=Trade Taco for Corolla.

Best compromise is probably a supercharger. But then, who cares about MPG. Cost of supercharger will pay for lots of gas. On second thought, leave it stock. Toyota spent lots of money engineering a decent compromise.

Yeah... Apples to oranges. Get a lighter rim and tire combo to reduce rotating mass.

You'll definitely pick up power with an Afe or URD intake. Gas mileage will be most dependant on gas pedal, tire pressure and all sorts of other factors.

MPG

I have a 2011 V6 Taco 6" lift. Avg mileage 18-20. I didn't see any improvement after intake/exhaust changes, until I changed the clutch fan to an electric and got a BullyDog Watch dog to show me where I was wasting fuel.
PS. I have Manual Trans. I don't think you can get this mileage with a Auto.
Hope that helps.
