    What's the best way to gain hp on a 08 2.7 Tacoma ? Right now it has a 2.75 fat bobs lift with 29 inch tire and 410 gears . I need a little more power to tow my trailer .

    There are a lot of mods that you can do the cheap way and still look good but when it comes to performance, especially forced induction, you don't wanna skip out on it and do it cheap. You really do get what you paid for. I had a friend years ago try to skimp on parts when he was building a turbo kit. He got one of those ebay down piping and intercoolers for like $150-$200 and when it came in the pipes didn't seal with the intercooler and the bends in the pipe were WAAAAY off, pretty much to the point to where they couldn't be used.

    You're already geared, which means it's time to supercharge that shit.

    A some point it would be cheaper to trade it for a V6...

    I am looking into supercharging the 2.7 with the URD kit. Yea it may be cheaper to upgrade to the V6 but I like my single cab and you have to get a bigger truck to get the V6, with lots of extras. I have the V6 supercharged in my FJ cruiser because it doesn't come with a V8. To be honest it is faster than a V8 now. I bet a supercharged 2.7L single cab 4x4 would be very fast as well.

    Get a new truck or fork out the $$$$ for a supercharger. Simple as that.
