    2 tone paint job on my truck or save $300 and get the MAF cal. to open up my bolt ons.

    the 2tone will be black from the pinstripe up and the silver on bottom

    the only bolt on you will get any significant gain from is a supercharger.

    is there anything wrong with your paint? if there is then I would say to do the paint? otherwise, use the $300 for something else.

    Too many mods to list
    On 05+ V6 Tacoma's the mods you did, did next to nothing performance wise sadly. They might look good, but that is about it. Butt-Dyno's do not count. I also feel my Taco to be faster when it sounds deeper, but it is not faster.

    Air Intake = Tacoma's already come with a type of CAI since it gets air from out of the engine bay. If you installed something like a KN CAI, you might actually be losing performance.

    Throttle Body Spacer = Everybody has a different opinion, but this will not give you any gains. It doesn't matter how they are advertised, they just don't.

    Exhaust = You might have gotten some performance gains here, maybe. Not much though.

    Basically I am saying this first, so that I can tell you why I think it is not worth it for you to get any type of calibrator with the mods you have done. If you got any gains at all, they were minimal and would not benefit from a calibrator IMO.

    So if it was me, I would get the paint job.

    If it was Paint Job or Supercharger/Turbo, that would be different.

    Note: Your exhaust looks nice, but it would probably look nicer if it was a little tucked in. It seems to stick too far out. That is just my opinion though. Apart from sticking out a bit too far, it looks great, as does the rest of your truck. Nice mean looking bar up front. :thumbsup:
