    I have my 2004 Toyota Tacoma and I have been looking for more ways to throw more power in to it, so far I have a K&N air intake and a Flowmaster 50 exhaust, I noticed a little but I cant seem to find other parts for this engine any where. Help please. :eek:

    Supercharger is the only big gain.

    I though about some headers and the supercharger, the cost of it isnt worth the power at all

    lcengineering.com is all you need to know! have fun shopping :)

    al you really have left is a header and a proper tune for those mods. you might be better off with a factory intake and hi flow filter, not sure the intake configuration on the 1st gen 4 cylinder intake assembly. also the exhaust might not be doing much as far as low end performance...the 2 mods you have should be helping on the top end.

    Yeah that is all it helps on it high in, from about 3500 rpm and up it launches like a rocket other then that it is shitty, I thought about just dropping a 350 small block in it and just doing a big project on it.

    that is sick, the only bad part about it, is it looks crammed in there, I would rather want something that looks clean, i bet it sounds good though
