    K&N filters do a shitty job of filtering and if you oil them you'll kill your MAF.

    The motor was not detuned, it has been basically the same motor since 05. The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) changed how the Hp and Torque was measured. The 245hp motor is still a 245hp motor, just measures differently at 236hp.
    On a chassis dyno, they would measure the same.

    There is always a base map, but without resetting your ECU by removing the positive lead from your battery for about ten minutes or resetting it with a scanning tool your computer will most likely not refer back to that map without something like ceaseless engine knock or overheating for a long period.

    Belt changes on KB cars is much easier but still a bitch. Go turbo, but don't buy a kit. Buy a nice mig welder and all the mild steel piping you will need. Even if you outsource the turbo headers and you buy a Procharger intercooler, the cost of the kit will be less than half if you weld up the piping yourself, even less than that if you do a single turbo. Nice head units are less than $1000, you could even find like a GT42R for $900.

    seems to me acdronin sure spends a lot of time and money
    trying to make a 4x4 go faster
    however
    he is really going to save money if his oil changes last 3000k miles

    so you went from an underpowered truck to a truck that "hauls ass" just by installing a intake filter, URD maf cal. and catback exhaust?

    3000 x 1024(1k) = over 3 million miles between oil changes

    Doug 2000 - Thanks for that explanation.....I had previously been misinformed apparently about the explanation for the decrease in reported bhp and torque. We had a '94 4-Runner...we fondly called "The Lead Sled", but it was a reliable hauler...we now have a '04 4-Runner with the 4.0 and love it! Much better powered and they are just so darned reliable!!!
