    Chips are a waste of money IMO. they can really screw up your trucks computer. I would just go with a MAF kit from URD. those actually help. Other than that, i would buy some good headers and ,maybe an exhaust.

    I personally wouldn't use an oiled filter like the K&N but that's just me. I/H/E is usually the best way to start

    +1, yeah I would stay away from K and N, even though I have a trd cai that uses oiled filter I would suggest you look into AFE/Trueflow/URD for your intake. Check out some Doug Thorley headers and then work on your exhaust. After that Get the URD MAF calibrator that will bring all your performance upgrades together. Other than that get boosted!

    Just get the supercharger and be done with it. It's tough to beat that much Toyota warrantied power.

    ^A very good point but you're talking a lot of money to most folks (like me with a newborn). You can do I/H/E for less than a thousand if you get creative.

    I noticed an instant improvement, and for about 2 minutes work. Its a charcoal filter that removes fumes coming out of the inner engine after shutdown

    If you got with a CAI kit, the secondary air filter will get ditched as part of the parts you toss when installing the kit.

    Can't go wrong with the TRD CAI and TRD exhaust. As for headers, Doug Thorley long tubes, 02 sensor syms from URD as well as MAF controller from URD. Most bang for your buck with those mods.
