    Gb4 filled up about 10 days ago. Gb5 isn't far away. Would like 1 or 2 more in it before it starts. If you check page one- you'll see how full it is already

    For anyone on the fence about getting these gears or not: So far, zero mileage gain.....it's just too much fun to smash the skinny pedal now!
    :burnrubber:
    But seriously, no question that there is a very noticeable boost in mid range power and torque and a considerably smoother running truck overall. I really wasn't prepared for how much of a difference 3 degrees would make. But back to mileage, even with a fair amount of lead foot, my sense is that the needle on the fuel gauge isn't dropping as fast. I'll need a tank or two to know for sure, but my guess is that, like everyone else, there is a boost in MPG in there. Sooooooooooo glad I did this mod!!!!!!

    That's what I like to here! Thanks for posting your review. When you do get back to your normal driving- report back your mileage difference.

    @mightytacoman, are your prices current on the front page? is it 120 each? I'm just getting through all of the stuff I needed to do to my Tacoma before I did this.

    I think he’s asking if it’s 120 a cam? Maybe?

    I think you're right! 120 covers both gears and shipping.

    Whats the hardest art of install and tear down? You say contortionist lol care to elaborate? My truck is lifted 2.5-3 in the front with big ass 17s and its hard enough working in the bay. I will probably end up using a step stool to be sure I can reach it all. Is it like changing the spark plus contortionist>

    I ended up sitting on the hoop of my plate bumper the entire time basically. But I had someone to hand me tools and beer.

    Deflate your tires! Or take them off. hardest part is breaking loose the old cam gears without stretching the chain

    Just ordered all the gaskets so I guess I’ll be able to do this in a couple weeks once they all come in.

    You mention in the updated first post the price and how you aren’t accepting used gears anymore and recommend OEM, Napa, etc.

    If you supply the gears, what are you using? OEM or something else?

    Yes, I understand that but you didn't answer my question at all.

    WHAT BRAND are the gears being used by OP when we just pay the $120 for both gears including shipping?
