Increasing HP, TQ, and MPGs is kinda not realistic. You can increase power and keep mpgs close to the same...but you aren't going to build a 500HP 30mpg engine without swapping out the entire thing. (and even then....Who knows)

XRunnit should be around a some point and he'll have tons of ideas for you....Any idea what your budget is??

I'll ask again- What is your budget?? your goals for gains?? A supercharger with the APR X-1 controller will get your HUGE gains...but it'll cost you 5-6 grand or so.

URD makes the MAF Calibrator that'll run you 3-4 hundo and can be tuned to extract all possible gains from I/H/E. It's all about what you want to spend really.

Things to stay away from in terms of you wanting more power:

1. Throttle Body Spacer (just gives you a whistle)
2. Superchip (They dont compare to anything like what you get if you put one in a diesel)
3. SOME Cold Air Intakes arent welcome for our engines (Most just take the hot air in the engine bay and force it into your engine.)


Things to look into:

1. Really anything from URD or TRD. (The new TRD CAI is having problems with the TRD S/C. Appearantly, they havent pin pointed the air/fuel ratio.)
2. Lightweight Pulleys
3. Short Throw Gearshift by URD.


But now thats all in the engine bay and on paper specs. If you really want to see the results, you will most likely need to go to a semi-slick tire or (I'm not certain on this) a 1 piece Driveshaft.

Doesn't Tom Woods or another brand have a slim 1 piece Driveshaft? Its the same diameter as the Stock Drive shaft.

And I know. I heard that they make a driveshaft specifically for dropped trucks. Its the same diameter as the Stock X-Runner driveshaft.

The replacement for the other Tacomas are almost twice as large as the stock

I would say supercharger is the biggest gain in power that is possible with these trucks. Also I would join XRU http://www.xr-underground.com/ they are more focused on power and x-runners.

Your in your 60's, have the maturity level of a 16 year old... screams 'mid-life' crisis. Go send more hatemail, and keep this crap off these boards. Noboby here cares about why you were on probation many times, with finally a ban, nor do they care about the temporary bans you've already received here, or on CustomTacos. Go talk shit somewhere else, its not welcomed here.

....speaking of which....

...back on topic, your going to have to pay to play. unless you have $8Gs laying around, i say TRD (AFE S2) CAI/exhaust. i have this combo and definitely feel a difference...not crazy gains, but a little...

Exactly. Once ya go fast ya just want to go faster.
Well its not the mods, Its just that I'm a lone man out, because I'm on a X-Runner forum with a lifted Tacoma TRD Sport.

I will get back on soon because I'm now into the performance mods

But every forum is run differently, Just like ToyotaNation is ran differently from TacomaWorld. But to each is their own. I just like it here because its so chill and you dont have to get worried about being banned when you make a post.
