    My VIN was on the list for the TSB and the dealer wanted to keep my truck for 2 days to verify the problem... Needless to say I still haven't gotten the TSB...

    The “sluggishness” of the truck bothered me in my first week of owning.
    But after researching, not other trucks, but recent years of various Toyota vehicles, I found out that the why of how Tacoma’s powered train operates is very similar to what they did to the Camry, and rav4.
    So I got over it. The truck is plenty powerful, they hold it back for some reason.
    It is what it is

    I find most people I know are extremely afraid of bringing up the RPMs. Every single day I drive my 96 4Runner I bring that tach to 5 grand. It's good for the engine!

    After reading through this thread a bit, what a sad state of affairs we are in. A computer update to change drive-ability of a MT truck. I tightened the cable on the throttle body to make my responsiveness instant.
