So, I have done a small amount of work to my taco, and am curious about getting new and substantial gains. I know people talk about their opinions on forced induction, but that solution seems a little exravagant and overpriced. Let's discuss power options for my truck. $$ is not an issue in regards to solution, but I would prefer not to drop 3500 on an FI system when I can try to find gains n/a.
Truck: '07 Tacoma, 6cyl. 4.0l
Current mods: trd intake, magnaflow exhaust.... (Not much)
Debating re-gear to justify the 33" tires.
I did some research on popular suggestions. Intake manifold spacers, which don't really show any true results, seem to be a popular suggestion. Any official proof as to performance gains? Headers are another popular suggestion, but I live in California, so long tubes are not legal. Chips are common as well, but I've seen too many friends destroy motors by fucking withe the fuel/air ratio, and I have no intrest in blowing up my dirty girl....
The floor is now yours. Leave suggestions, options, research, facts, and your own personal experiments/experiences with tuning, mods or motor work. I want power, lots of it, so let's get my dirty girl spinning tires again. Please keep posts civil and respectful. Thank you.
