    I wanted to find out what I could do to my 2010 4cyl Taco to make it a speed demon? Turbo, intake, blowback valves (for the cool ass sound), etc....

    You don't belong on this sentence. I was asking for some positive feedback.

    x2, you bought a pickup truck with a small engine and expect it to be fast?? Maybe you should have purchased the X-runner or a sports car instead...

    A turbo will help your cause but if you want a speed demon, you started with the wrong base vehicle.

    its funny cause many a 4cyl turbo tacoma is faster then an x-runner an you can always do all the suspension an brake mods to a 4 cyl 5 lug that you can do to the x-runner so you would have a lighter better handling truck then the x-runner not to mention better balance and power to weight ratio. hell i think even the "x" brace that makes an x-runner an x-runner will bolt up same with the front braces

    Just curious, but why turn a 4 cylinder into a "racer", isn't the point of the 4 cylinder to get better gas mileage?

    Why not have both? If you can keep your foot light even with a turbocharger or supercharger you will still get good milage usually better then n/a but only if you dont mash the gas every chance you get

    :rolleyes: just saying its kinda redundant to mod the 4 to out quick a 6 or 8. However if I plan to keep my 4 cyl forever I may look into some type of future turbo diesel. If it becomes a LTtoy truck

    Probably thinking of all the 4cyl Vtec type racers. Can be done.

    Depends on how much money you have. If it were me, I'd go for an engine swap or a turbo set up/ internal upgrades.
