    I was just about to post the same thread... Good thing I searched... I just avoided a flaming!

    That said, their website is still listing a 2005-2007 Tacoma as a needed vehicle to test parts:
    --------------

    The BBK engineering department is constantly developing new products for today's car and truck enthusiasts and are always on the lookout for specific vehicles for fitment and product development needs.

    Vehicles used for product development will receive the products installed free of charge, a value up to thousands of dollars depending upon the product. Vehicles are normally required for up to one week during original design, and then are scheduled and needed back approximately one month later for installation and testing of final product.
    These are the cars we need for EO Testing for the throttle bodies, headers and the 5004 SSI intake.

    After reading it again I think they are only offering free installation, their site doesn't specify free parts

    "a value up to thousands of dollars depending upon the product. "
