    What if i decided to add new headers and exhaust and other stuff... would that be a good thing or be a waste and get a manual they do the mods..I just dont want waste all my money because i have a automatic.

    Dont worry about it. The 5 speed auto has been behind the 4.7 V8 in the 4 runner for years. Its one of the strongest autos Toyota has made.

    I didnt realize it was the 2.7, sorry......Yes, the auto behind that motor is plenty strong for just about anything you throw at it.
