    87 octane most of the time. But will run 91 every 5000 miles/each oil change along with a 20oz bottleof Techron.

    Used M1 5W-30 up to 90K miles, then switched to PP 5W-30 (I think it was cheaper and I noticed the infamous Taco Tic was less noticeable). At 10OK miles I switched to PP HM 5W-30. All with OEM Toyota Filters.

    Diffs & T-Case have all had synthetic 75W-90 gear oil every 30K miles.

    Lube all 5 zerks on drive shafts every 5K miles with M1 grease.

    Haven't touched the Tranny fluid.

    Anyone know if 87 octane is ok to run with a CAI?

    Very common on Toyotas. It's just a combination of oil and moisture. Nothing to worry about

    I dump in a bottle of Techron at 5k OCs myself. I'll probably switch to M1 HM as I close in on 100k. Besides the seal and gasket conditioners, it's on the heavier end of the 5w30 viscosity range...12.7 vs 11 for M1. Plus it's got a more robust additive pack, including extra cleaners.

    Also been looking at M1 Truck and SUV formula. It's new. It slightly heavier than M1 with a 10% boost in additives. Might try it out

    Sure. Won't hurt a thing. If the ECM detects any detonation it'll pull the timing a bit.

    An aftermarket CAI won't bring in any cooler air than the factory setup already does. But they do tend to have a nice throaty sound

    One thing I wish I had not stuck with OE: leaf springs. Had a broken leaf on each side when I bought it. I was dissapointed when I set the truck down and the brand new leafs sagged nearly as much as the old ones.

    Should have gone with heavy duty leafs.

    I got lucky with the OEM leafs. Had the original 3 leaf pack and now the TSB 4 leaf pack. Never any sagging, even with a Leer Cap and loading it up with gear of all sorts.

    Love my Husky X-Act Contours. Way better than the slippery WT.

    And they cover the dead pedal.

    :rofl:

    Viscosity ratings have a range. Oils of the same rating can vary some and still be marked as the same viscosity. Kind of like a spectrum.

    For example...M1 5w30 and M1 HM 5w30 are both 5w30 oils. But the M1's viscosity is 11 and the M1 HM is 12.7 as measured at 100°. So it's on the heavier side of the 5w30 window

    That's a lot of boost. Guessing that water/meth injection keeps the detonation at bay?

    Yes sir, lowers intake temps, adds more fuel, boosts octane to about 110, and steam cleans the valves. Mainly for added it for another safety mechanism though
