    I just got in on the ultragauge group buy so
    I will have more accurate numbers, but my

    unless I am hard on the throttle.

    What do you do with your truck?

    Right now, LT would serve me best. Believe it or not the stock Tacoma has A LOT of power for off-roading.

    Centrifugal Superchargers suck. They are basically very inefficient turbos. Roots style is much better with more instant power delivery. Twin-Screw is best.

    I would pass on the URD system and just get the TRD if you want FI.

    Are the TRD superchargers finally available for the latest model years? Not too very long ago, they were only available for 2008 and earlier models.

    ^^ Well, that's good and bad news. Good that they're out and bad in that it's just more for me to potentially spend.

    No one said it must be a 6 inch lift. Why not get a top of the line lift kit like icon stage 4 front suspension then some real nice shocks in the rear and a nice leaf pack to give you 4 in the rear
