    What other mods would be useful.
    I would like it all done at the same time.

    Aquamist 2D meth/water injection kit, URD Exhaust, DT Long Tube Headers, Hood Struts, and lots of other miscellaneous stuff...
    Other useful mods would be an intake, headers, and exhaust.

    A far more complicated one would be a water/methanol injection kit.

    If you're going with the TRD, then I'm assuming that you are trying to keep your warranty. Mark the headers off of the list because those void your warranty. Doesn't the S/C come with an intake? I'd be leaning towards handling performance gains. Maybe some grippy tires. LSD. I think you'll be smoking your tires a little too easily.

    The URD Y-pipe may not void the S/C warranty, but read the terms carefully.

    Thanks guys.
    The TRD CAT BACK exhaust is fine, SC`s like back pressure for low end torque, which is what I need. I`m not taking it to the salt flats. It just needs to get me around the farm and 4 mls. to town. 8 to a larger town. 93 acres are tillable the rest is woods, bottoms and rough going.
    I stuck the Power Wagon down there and had to get a friend to give me that little that I needed with his 4WD.
    I have a dirt bike to check fence. But I still need to get to it with a PU.
    Toyota said that I have a 3" headliner rail to mount gun racks on over head.
    Part of my service to do list.
    I too thought the CAI that comes with the inter cooler OK. But it can`t hurt to add one maybe. As there is no data out there, I`ll do the sc and ask the chief Mech. about the seperate CAI.
    Headers are always good right?. However, I spoke with TRD and they said they do more harm than good unless you want your power at high RPM, which I don`t. They did not think a ported and polished intake manifold would do much good either. After all of these years, I don`t know why they don`t make the engine breath off the line.
    How are Hooker and Edlebrock going to make a living without me?
    I am commited to the SC, however any and all comments are welcome.
    I hope TRD did their home work. I don`t need a hanger queen.
