    Alright guys, I have kept quiet on TW for a while. My company is great and Im going to start putting some money into my tacoma again. Just been driving and maintaning her lately (actually havent been driving much).

    But anways, I was wondering what are some performance mods I could go through with in order to get a little more power and a little more roar out of her.

    Now, I know the obvious answer is SUPERCHARGE! But that isnt happening... yet ;)

    Really, the only perfomance mod i've done is the Flowmaster 40 and deckplate.

    Well besides the typical intake or deckplate mod, an exhaust, and maybe headers there isn't much more you can do to these little trucks power wise without going to a full blown supercharger route. Even then with the I,E, and H you're still only going to gain roughly around 15-20Hp optimistically. My advice would be to save your $1000 and invest it into maintenance on the truck so you can enjoy it longer. Other than that if you want fast or performance you can't expect much from an underpowered 190HP V6 truck that weighs almost 4,000lbs.
