    What about the slight Hp gain? Since I'm a student I'm on a budget so i don't want to spend the money if its not worth it... I figured with the louder rumble in the higher rpm's and the day i get a new muffler it would sound sick

    HP gains are not worth the couple hundred you will pay for it. That's why i didn't get one in my new truck if you want a "good" cai go with the URD otherwise just throw in a drop in filter. Search cai threads there's tons of them but the short and sweet version is: on tacomas the stock intake draws from the "cold air area" already that's why a drop in filter is better....

    It's up to you, I had Volant intake and flow master sounded awesome but not really any gains to speak of

    :laugh: me too but hey, we didnt have to pay so we should work with what we have :D

    I think you should look around at others stormtroopers builds, everyone has some personal touches they add but looking at other White tacos will give you ideas, nice wheels and tires, i have the same tires :cool:

    Subbed. :popcorn:

    Being in college makes it hard to put money into our trucks! Truck looks good man. You should go with an AAL in the rear unless you are going for the bro lean. Just my .02
