    K&N intake. That is all. For now...
    I found a few write-ups on how to change the cluster colors which is cake. Also found one on how to change the a/c controls.... for an older Tacoma.

    I noticed that on my 03 the orange color is actually, printed, onto the plate. Does this mean i'm SOL when it comes to changing the color? I can't find anymore info.

    And what about the clock?

    Not sure about the clock, but yep, you're pretty much SOL concerning the climate control cluster color. About the only thing you can do is try to remove the orange, but as many have tried in the past, seems rather futile with out removing some of the black on the face as well. ( http://www.customtacos.com/forum/showthread.php?t=118109 )

    The other option is covered in the thread above with a replacement. The platinum or white AC panel from Nu Image (can be bought from http://www.sfxperformance.com/parts/Toyota/Tacoma/Interior~Accessories/AC~Panels/page_1.htm ) Now you're just changing from orange to blue though, not white (or the color you really want)

    Of course if you have the means, you could always try to some type of transparency, but I dont know much about that.
