    with my little gm there is a program on your labtop that you can tune using its called HP tuners is there a program like that for the tacoma where you can tune your stock pcm rather then running a chip or a piggy back system

    The 09 model is going to have the support that the 05-08's have. Toyota changed the ECU a bit. So we can't use the ECU controller that is currently being used for custom tuning for boosted applications.

    Here is a quick cheat sheet, i'm sure i'm forgetting some things, let me know and I'll add them.

    Options:
    Tuning - APR X-1 ECU controller

    TRD Supercharger - Eaton MP90 (roots)
    Stock boost 6-8lbs, 10lbs+ in summer, haven't seen winter boost numbers with aftermarket pulleys, but should see as high as 12psi.
    Comes with:
    -425cc Injectors
    -Option of ECU reflash from the dealership.
    -water to air intercooler & front mount heat exhchanger

    Upgrades Available
    - APR X-1 Stage I Kit (ECU controller, exhaust timing gears, 170° T-stat)
    - lots of pulley options (upper and lower)
    - APR 7th injector kit
    - APR 668cc e85 injector
    - Any CAI
    - Exhaust
    - Fuel pump upgrade

    URD MKII Supercharger - Rotex (centrifugal)
    Stock boost of 6-7lbs, pullied up to 9lbs+
    Comes with:
    - Integrated intake system
    - Front mount air to air intercooler
    - APR X-1 Stage I Kit
    - 670cc Injectors (non e85)
    - URD Fuel Pump upgrade

    Upgrades Available
    - 2 pulley upgrades
    - Exhaust

    Street tires, stock pulley.

    Basically, TRD S/C, X-1, bolt-ons (I/H/E + 7th inj) and a tune.

    I plan on running mid-low 12's this winter. As I have added 3-4lbs of boost. And hope to finally have a set of drag radials

    heheheh
