    I just got a 2008 trd sport tacoma. And I was wondering is it worth to buy intake and complete exhuast system? I really like the truck but i would really like to get better mpg's. So What u guys think?

    I doubt you'd see much improvement in MPG by upgrading to a CAI and exhaust. Maybe removing the secondary filter and adding a low restriction drop in filter would help a bit.

    And gdawg is right, there is ample info here. Have a search and you'll be surprised what you find.

    if you want better mpg's either do one or the other when it comes to cai and exhaust. I did cai first and noticed a slight gain also liked the sound, then added a flowmaster 40 and my mpg is back down to where i was before i got my cai, but i love the sound so its worth it to me.
