Turbo kit will be the most expensive, due to the fabrication costs. PowerFab is making them, but they are not massed produced. So They still have to be made by hand. They have made four so far. SIK X's, Toon714's, Clifford's, and now Redlantern's. They had a "small' hand in mine's.

TRD starting is the cheapest.

Then URD.

Then PowerFab, or (whichever performance shop you choose) will be the most expensive.

I know the URD has like a superchargers from stage 1-4 I think and the TRD just has one and if I were to get one I done think I would need 500hp I think I would feel comfortable 320-360hp

Stock install wont' get you 300 from the TRD.

You will need to add in the cost of a full exhaust, intake, fuel pump, and pulley.

So that ~$3800 just increased another ~$2193. (Will vary with differing components)

To a total of ~$ 5993

URD MK3 Stage 1 costs $5695, and starts out with more components, as well as more power.

For most however, that is a large chunk of change. So they choose to go TRD, then upgrade slowly.

So basically, this means im very screwed? Chihuahua is supposed to be around 4,700 ft above sea level

You could just get used to it

I'm at around 5000 ft elevation, makes it feel like I have a 2jz swap with NOS whenever I drop down to sea level

Any forced induction system will be better in higher elevation where NA type run out of breath. Just look at the Pike Peaks time trial runs in regards to boosted application compared to natural aspirated engines. Big difference in time.

Pardon my ignorance on the subject, what do you mean by mps?

What I can comment though, is that the truck behaves well, sometimes it does feel a little slow, but my mpg´s are very bad.
