    Hey guys just wanted to show my tacoma off... I bought it built for a dd(lol) since my mustang is going to go under the knife for a new swap.. Ive really enjoyed the truck its been built right and is a blast.. Only thing i really dont like is the welded rear end(no traction now i cant imagen it not being welded) And the racing seats (they will go asap) It dynoed at around 270hp on 11psi soo the goal is 300 hp on 14 psi

    Nice, I sometimes miss my turbo until I hear the rumble of the V8 now..23 psi was fun!!

    I can actually build you a custom forward facing intake if you want one, I have built over 25 of them for these motors.

    But its amazing what these motors can handle, I ran 18 psi with just head studs and a MLS head gasket. However a good tune and a standalone is a must for high boost.

    Nice truck!

    Not sure on price as the kit was peacied together.. but ive seen them online for around $1500.. believe it or not the turbo is an ebay 50 trim along with an ebay intercooler.. The truck is VERY solid on 14pis and goes side ways(welded rear) at full boost in 2nd ha! My biggest issues right now is traction.. but over all its a VERY fun truck, i couldnt imagen having any other setup on a tacoma and it being this fun..
