    Stick on hood scoop from Autozone.
    I've estimated it to be in the $5,000 range.

    Yeah, I saw one thread, and from what I've seen its not gonna be cheap, I might just stick with the Pre-Runner. Wait 4 years and get a 4X4 Taco when i graduate.

    I want to do it, too. I know it's easier to trade in and everything, but I would rather stick with the truck that I already put so much other work and money in to.
