    I may be in the minority here, but I love my new 18' Taco! This is my 5th Yota and am pleased with how it performs. My last one was an 06 MT, but clutch was going out, so I bought this new one. I've been babying it, but have been slowly pressing the gas pedal a little bit closer to the floor each time I drive it. Right at 1200 miles on it now and no complaints so far!

    Basically a motor is just a multi cylinder air pump the more efficient it is the more hp it'll make

    Ported Polished CNC cylinder heads allow for more airflow on the intake side along with increased flow on the exh side .These mods are good for up to 70hp

    A more aggressive cam profile that will work in conjunction with the cylinder heads

    Larger throttle body allows more air into the motor


    Torque converter designed to get the motor faster into its hp / tq curve this will improve off idle throttle response

    Performance transmission valve body for firmer quicker shifts

    How much of this is custom, how much can be bought and installed?

    Does any or all of it void warranty?

    I'm no expert, but you're probably going to have to make changes to the ECM calibration to truly take advantage of these mods.

    I’m so happy I have a manual six speed in my 2016 tacoma TRD sport. No automatic transmission hunting shifts!
    I can hold any gear up or downhill or shift as needed myself and red line at will. I can downshift to avoid lugging engine.
    I test drove an automatic and hated the transmission hunting gears or continuing to upshift while I was approaching slow or stopped traffic ahead.
    A manual shift provides more control and is a better driving experience IMO
    As far as speed and power I’m aware I bought a truck not a sports car. I have no problem with the stock available horsepower or speed.
    And my clean driver license is a bonus.
    Appreciate the technical explanation at the beginning of this thread
