    :confused: im looking to get a little more bang out of my truck, the engine is curently stock, aside from a k&m filter intake and flowmaster exhaust. I love wakin up those car alarms...:D. but a little extra kick from the wheels would just add to some more respect from these other 6 and 8 cylinders on the trail. im mainly looking for some more torque and was wondering what route to go...so far it seems more inclinded to supercharging along with some gear mods..HELP!!!

    gears dont give "HP" or "torque" but from what i understand it helps the engine work less hard so thatll be the first step for the respect on the trail.

    Also without a sc or tc, get yourself some nice AT tires.. oh boy my ntg's are great out there!!! tc and sc are out for the gen1 trucks, and soon for the gen2's

    buy some headers. it will help in lower rpm range.

    ok thanks to the guys that answered to my question i now have a better sense of direction as to what i want...re gearing is definitely on my mind as well as a supercharger... i wasnt sure if headers were available for small 4bangers...but i will definitely look in to it as it is one of the cheaper mods i think for this application..i already did it to my 97 v6 4runner along with a borla exhaust and k&n box filter,...for this truck i am also looking into supercharging its a manual transmitiion 4x4 as well with a 2 inch lift and other minor mods that just make it my favorite truck to drive, but is also a little underpowered in the torque department.:rolleyes: thanx

    Yea, 4 bangers can be light on the power usually. The key is to read them before you move the foot. :D
    Dunno if that's easy or not with Toyota's but with Mazda they just whip around and crap on you in the end.
    "They make lots of noise that make you seem like you're going really fast...but in the end you're only going 5MPH faster..." My favorite quote about engines ever.
