I have rebuilt my engine and put a good amount of money into it and when I swapped to 33s I really felt the slow down however once I regeared it was an entire new story. I am looking into putting in the 3.4 into my truck but that's only because I want to start racing. The only time I have a trouble keeping up with the newer trucks is large hills especially with a bed full of camping gear. But when I get to where I'm going I know I have a slim chance of breaking down and if I do the odds of the local parts store having what I need in store that day to go home is high and the parts are cheap compared to having wait a day 2 and gave to deal with the high prices of the fancy new parts
Just Tacomas and the v6 3.0 right?
Awesome! It looks friggin sweet! Well the only time I have issues with the 33s is uphill. Can't keep up with traffic going up hill. It does perfectly fine on the streets here. I'm pretty sure it doesn't have the factory 4.10s as it is very strong from stand stills with 33s. And my mph are off by 8-10mph. All my gear shifts are super close and tight as well compared to my bro in laws 94. Oh and in 4high I can let go of the clutch and gas pedal while in gear, and the truck will keep going. Even on smooth hills. Not sure if that's normal?
I do have long tubes, and a muffler as well as a K&N filter.
The 3.4 is a stout machine as well. That will definitely be good for racing. That's something for me to think about in the future. That is true on things that can go wrong out there. Locally for me though, not many parts in stock as its mostly new cars everywhere around here lol.

THe issues I am having are in no way related to the 4x4 chassis swap. TPS sensor is on the throttle body. Picked up a used one with warranty for $30. If it doesn't work I can trade it out.
