    1. The blue thing is an oil filter adapter. It is installed between the oil filter base and the oil filter. It has 4 ports in it and it is used to screw in sensors. The oil temperature and oil pressure sensors that go to my in-cab gauges are screwed into these ports. Check out the build thread (link in my sig) for more pics.

    2. The TRD intake is okay. I got it as a birthday gift. I don't think I would have spent the $280 to get one for myself. It sounds great at high rpm but I didn't really notice any performance benefits. Very easy to install.

    3. I love the S/C. The sound, the power, its all addicting. It was also a good bit of fun to install and being able to scoot at will is well worth it. I had a 350Z and the acceleration is the only thing I missed about that car when I swapped to the Tacoma. I can finally let go :D

    Welp. Looks like a lot of work, but not overly difficult. Great documentation - I hope to do this myself someday soon. Very nice.

    It's been bumped around on quite a few posts.. Let's all settle down and pick a date for once!

    I suggest the Dullas expo center as a location. Nice large parking lot and usually empty at the north building.

    That'd be good. Lots of places to eat in the area too.
