    He said nothing about making it fast. I don't see anything wrong with squeezing out every pony with things like a deck plate. OP you could also get headers and a new muffler... but those are much less bang for your buck than a deck plate.

    No Truck..well, maybe
    Grey wire MOD, deck plate, diff breather MOD, 2nd gen. OME 883# on Tundra 5100's, OMD custom 3" leafsprings, rear shock relocation, Ivan Stewart TRD rims w/285/75/16's, '02 bumper MOD, Famous Fabrications sliders , LED interior/exterior lights, bed bar, Custom tube bumper, Old school KC day lighters,Red Ring 8" HID flood, Kenwood vhf 2M.. umm some other shit I'm forgetting right now

    The deckplate MOD is a good one, easy to do, its basically cutting a 4"(approx) hole in your stock airbox, I would def. get rid of that 55 gallon drum Toyota calls a muffler & get an aftermarket one. (if you haven't noticed it before go take a look at the size of that monster, restrictive as hell)

    Both of these MODS will help noticeably in the low to mid range powerband (great for pulling your boat around)....;)
