    For more speed you are looking at a supercharger, new exhaust, headers, new air filter set-up, etc... Some of these require easy work and there are how-to's on here if you have some time and don't want to pay extra cash for a shop to do it.

    I know. I was going to mess with him a bit because NOS is a company not a gas.

    OP, you have a small, reliable, efficient engine. none of that spells fast. you can regear, that'll make you have more get up and go, but that'll be moneys and time. you could put smaller rims and tires too, but then you'll have to tell your parents that you're not a man. Seriously, if you want fast, sell the taco and get a fast car. with all the mods that tacoma 206 and I listed, you still won't be the fast truck...because you have an efficient, slow 4banger.
