    2004 2.7 4x4 ext cab
    3" spacer lift, skid plates (motor, transmission and transfer case), cold air intake, nerf bars, bull bar, spare tire rack in back, after market headlights, tail lights, custom shifter knobs and custom paint inside cab.
    I was wondering if there was anyone out there who installed a snorkel and how did it improve the performance of your 2.7, more specific an 04 2.7L tacoma

    Why would a snorkel improve performance?

    I guess you are talking about a snorkel for deep water? Might even hurt performance a little since it might impede air flow.

    From the little bit of info I saw on this topic, it seemed as though the snorkel improved mileage a tad. I guess due to the pure cold air coming in from outside the engine bay. Then again, I'm always skeptical about what I read on the interweb.

    I think that several members have had good results with the snorkels. They claim to get slightly better gas. I will do a search in a minute

    This makes sense, I was thinking in terms of how it lengthens the run of your intake, not in terms of the air source.

    yes however, cold air and more fuel require less throttle input for same amount of power. therefore you can see better power and fuel mileage.

    Plus the snorkel looks goofy on a mall cruiser.
