    I have a new 2011 toyota tacoma, its an I4 and lacking power. I was wondering what some of the options were for me to get significant hp increases. I was hoping for more than just a new air filter. I know older models have turbochargers and some have superchargers.

    it would be greatly appreciated if someone could tell me where to get these products for such a new truck, what kind of impact it will have on the engine and about how much it will cost

    thank you!

    You have a 4 cylinder double cab... The amount of money you'll spend upgrading the 4 cylinder you're better off trading to a V6, especially since it's a 2011.

    Get a couple horses, then do the horse carriage mod.

    With a 4-banger, you should push your RPMs higher for more torque.

    I had a sports car, needed cargo huling for camping and snowboarding trips. Traded for sports truck, happier then a pig in shit. In fact, pigs rolling around in shit are jealous of how happy I am.

    pigs are actually very clean animals, poop in one corner of their pin... they roll in mud to keep cool, they are fatty which makes delicious bacon

    Not to be a dick, but I don't understand these threads. Did you not test drive the truck before buying it?

    If you did, surely you noticed the lack of power. So if thats the case, wouldnt the prudent thing be to research power mods before buying the truck?

    Or just getting a V6?

    x2, you need a hood scoop, rear wing and a loud exhaust first... THEN you can regear and go take on a Veyron :D
