    Just got the truck. V6 w/ 6 speed w/ TRD package w/ Tow package. It is a 2005 w/ 6000 only miles on it. Some guy got custody of his kids and needed a duelly. Did the carfax thing, all clear. The TRD seatcovers came in today, put them on, think they were defineately worth the cash. Nerf bars, or whatever the new lingo is, they should be here tomorrow. When the cash flow allows, next will be a cold air intake. Been looking at alot of forums, and that seems to be the biggest bang for the buck, when the bucks aren't falling of trees. Well, anyway, that's all for now, got to go make some money. I am glad this forum is here!!!

    Thank you. The next thing is exhaust, but the info out there is all over the place. The BIG thing seems to be a super charger w/ a seventh injector. Pricey, at the least. So i think i will go for sound, and that is going to be a bit of a research project. What the heck is a "thread" anyway?

    There is no available TRD supercharger for the 1GR (4.0 liter V6 in the 2005 and up) nor is there a 7th injector for these engines. Those are for the previous generation Tacoma's with the 3.4 liter 5VZ engine.

    URD released a centrifigul supercharger a few months back for the 1GR.

    For exhaust you could look into Banks I've got a sound clip around here somewhere.

    And a thread is what you started by introducing yourself.

    tcBob how do I get a .wav to you? I've got a sound clip of the Gale Banks exhaust for the 4.0l engine..

    Thanks, you can probably bump it down now.


    An idea, maybe a multimedia tab with some audio clips and a few vids??

    Thanks, guys, you are unbelievable. Sorry about the supercharger stuff, like I said, I am just getting into it, and mine is a 4.0. What does 1GR stand for. I assume it is the type engine. Is it all aluminum?

    Just put the nerf bars on to night. Got to see how the buck flows, but I am leaning to a K & N filter, cold air, and then I am told that a K & N oil filter is the best also. And what does the Great Taco think on oil? I am still below 7000 miles, so I need a full treatment.

    Thank you for the .wav file. Bucks got tight, so I went with the Magnaflow muffler change out. I got to admit for under $100 it sounds ok. Thanks for the advice, wherever I saw it. I ordered a K&N air, should have it in a couple days, then I will rest a bit. My pocket book too!!!!!!!
