    new to tacoma world. I just purchased a 2002 tacoma sr5 excabwith the 2.7l. I was wondering if anybody had some advice on a exhaust and intake for this truck? Also was wondering about an egr valve and if you can block them off? thanks

    Welcome to TW! I am new to Tacomas, but I do have the new version of the 2.7L. I am also interested in the EGR-bypass/shut-off. It wouldn't hurt to do some other modifications either.

    If you want something simple for your intake, a Deckplate mod. This is easier on the 1st Generation Tacomas as they have a wider surface area to install the plate on.

    If you are looking for something a bit more powerful (and cooler looking), a CAI (cold air intake) is a great idea!

    As far as exhausts, I would look at our performance section. Check this out.

    hope this helps!

    you are talking about the EGR Valve? I would be VERY interested to see some pics of this. Remember you can post pictures here in the Photo Gallery. :)

    Good luck!

    Welcome to TW. Don't know about on your gen. of Tacoma, but on older toyotas you can block off the EGR without any problems.

    Not too many. I believe we are the only two from Maine. Maybe a meeting in MA or VT so those a little south can make it.
