    yea ^^^ hes right only soo much power you can get out of these little 3.4L. Supercharger is a good start. Intake and exhaust are more for sound your not gunna get tooo much power out of those. Maybe look into the 7th injector kit for a lilttle more power. What kind of intake and exhaust are you looking into?

    I've got a set of URD 318cc Injectors and the URD piggyback controller going on as soon as my CAI and Exhaust is done. Not trying to make her a race car but i want her to be the Happiest little Tacoma she can be:)

    Not sure about the exhaust. I'm actually just looking into Headers right now, Ill be doing the 2.5" piping myself, single, with a chambered muffler (probably Borla) for just the right ammount of back pressure. I figured SC, Injectors, 2" pulley, CAI Exhaust and Controller is about as far as i'll take her. Any Suggestions on Headers?

    Thatll be a nice set up. For headers check out doug thorley if you want long tubes, and gibson or JBA for short tubes.

    Just FYI, I think a blown 3.4 is just as fast as a stock 4.0. So not too fast in the end.

    True but s/c a 3.4 and its pretty much maxed.. drop an ls1 and you don't need to run premium and you have more potential :p

    Defiantly. LS engine is the easiest way to get power. That is why they swap them into everything.

    Ya'll make it sound like you can just "drop in" an LS1. Have ya'll read and researched this?

    Well a lot of work would be needed but it can be done. You will end up with more power for the same if not less money as adding a blower and junk to the 3.4.
