    I just picked up a 2007 TRD Sport DC, 6 Speed. I added the ARE CX Topper this week. Truck is great compared to my previous Ranger Off-road. I wish the economy was better because this site has given me all sorts of ideas. I have to get a scan gauage II someday. Anyway, it will probably stay stock for a year and then the pimping will begin!

    Thanks to everyone on the forum, I removed the secondary air filter. I took the truck for a quick spin and the engine sounds noticibly quieter in every gear. RPMS droped a couple hundred too. That kills me that Toyota thinks it's better for the environment to filter that little bit of engine air when the truck is turned off versus the fuel savings you see from increasing airflow. Also, I would guess since activated carbon has a life span of about 6 months, the secondary air filter does not even do anything anymore. Anyway, thanks for the helpful tips on the forum.

    Ah, yes. Famous last words. I said the same thing when I had my 2000 and when I got my '07. My '07 was modded as seen within the first month. :)
