Need just little more
 
So I just ordered full k&n, thinking doing headers back. Dual exhaust just want a littler more power from the taco. Its a 6cyl 6speed. What are ur imputs

whippersnapper02 08-30-2011 12:27 PM

Supercharger. The K&N will rob some power because it is junk. If you want long tube headers you will lose lower end power but gain top end power.

I think you wasted your money on the K&N, the stock intake draws cold air from the fender. It's doubtful you'll get any real gains from the K&N, just more noise. Full exhaust may help a bit but for real power gains you'd have to look at superchargers or engine programmers (not chips, something like the APR-X1 if you can find one).

Ill have to look into the programer. I just cant.see spending.7g on a supercharge.

Actually it is about $5000 installed and you did just spend $200 for less power.

yeah been looking cant find anything. Less im looking in the wrong.places

feldman28 08-30-2011 04:12 PM

whippersnapper02 08-30-2011 04:13 PM

Looking for the blower or something else?

feldman28 08-30-2011 04:16 PM

Programer or ign . And with thw k&n I.have gotten almost 2mpg better.

whippersnapper02 08-30-2011 04:17 PM

URD MAF cal on urdusa.com.

feldman28 08-30-2011 04:24 PM

Thanks for help. Wife would kl me if I got sc. Well I have 1700 I was going to spend on lift. That can wait . It needs more power

whippersnapper02 08-30-2011 04:26 PM

You can change the gearing out but you will lose MPGs.

feldman28 08-30-2011 04:30 PM

Not going to do that. I want to do exhaust and tuner. Looking to get 20 more hp.

whippersnapper02 08-30-2011 04:33 PM

Well full exhaust with a tuner might get you close to your goal.

Where and what kind of power are you looking for? High rpm, low rpm? Normally any change you make might get you one or the other, but not both. In some cases it's gain one, lose the other....

o you have an 09, so APR is out, they don't support 09+ yet
o MAF Cali is a good thought, but it will only gain you power when in open loop
o short tube headers will gain you some down low
o long tubes will gain you some up high
o a decent CAI (AFE, URD, TRD) may gain you a few HP up top
o a dual exhaust may gain you a few HP up top (very dependant on pipe size though and if it's a true dual, or just a dual exit)

Might want to consult a bit with URD for NA mods for your situation.

feldman28 08-31-2011 07:29 AM

Thanks for help. Just want all round power

GL, let us know when you find something :D

feldman28 08-31-2011 08:07 AM

I want a supercharger bad. But dont.have 5g for it. So its headers back exhaust and some kind of programer.

Sorry for steering you the wrong direction, I wasn't even paying attention to what year you have. No APR X-1 for you :cool:

O no prob. All the input is welcome
