    Suggestions vary on how much you want to spend and what you want out of it!!!

    Intake?
    Exhaust?
    Supercharger?
    Tune it?
    Lift it?
    Wheel it?
    Sliders?

    Hmmmmm? What do you really want?

    i was thinking to begin with simple things like trd intake and trd exhaust, then also looking to get new sound system, is it possible to get a sub in the car?

    Have you thought about a supercharger it would definitely upgrade the hp of your vehicle ofcourse the price is $4700 but if you tow really heavy cargo then this is the one for you.the cheap way of doing this is the air intake and new exhaust system. your preference ofcourse. do more research see what acceptable numbers and performance reviews you could find. it helps alot when you do this. hope this helps.

    As the Lady said a S/C will give you much more HP (URD sells a centrifigal S/C) and if your brave and have the money you could go to a shop and have a turbo setup installed.

    An intake and an exhaust will get you a little increase but you will have to tune it to make up for the increased breathing your engine will be doing.

    Reprogram your computer.... adjust fuel to match additional air intake.... The additional power will see an increase in gas consumption.

    None currently, but I would like a better sounding exhaust and perhaps a cold air pack and some color coded step bars
    Two of my friends have the supercharger from TRD and they installed it themselves, they are Toyota nuts,and do all service themselves. They also installed larger injectors, I believe and they like the added punch in passing.
    They have installed rear sway bars, Bilstein shocks etc. Mostly performance and audio mods, no exterior add ons. They also reprogramed the comp.
    One factor was that they had to jump up to premium gas. I think in the spring they are going to put them on a dyno and see exactly what the added HP is.

    Welcome. There are several options for subs. I have two JL micro subs behind the rear seats. Those things kick ass! Only 8 inchers! I love them
