It'll pass CO emissions when done. Planning to post a thread once complete. E-Locker, budget CAI and exhaust, Warn Powerstation, Addicted Off Road bumper, ToyTec OME w/AAL lift, aftermarket stereo w/10 inch subwoofer (only cool when you realize how I fit it in a reg cab truck), dual lexus horns, roll bar, off road lights, CB radio, Powertrax Lock Right locker (front diff), ejecto seat, laser/phaser/ion ray gun, oil slick, heat seaking missles...
    Hey everyone, new member here. I have a 1995.5 Taco (3RZ motor) I bought in fall of 2010 in non-running condition. Since then I have fixed the electrical issue (reference sensor in the distributor housing) and given her a good tune up (new headlights, windshield/rear windows, all fluids, vacuum hoses, intake gaskets, CAT and O2 sensors). Runs like a new truck (with 225K miles).

    Additions I have put on the truck: Rear axle out of a 2000 TRD tacoma with E-Locker, roll bar, Toytec OME 3" lift w/1" diff drop and 883 springs, Addicted Offroad bumper, Warn PowerPlant HP winch, Hella and other off road lights, cold air intake, 32" BFG AT's, running light blinker mod, Powertrax Lock Right locker in the front diff, dual lexus horns, air horns, etc lol.

    Future mods include a new motor (already in the garage, 88K miles 3RZ) with custom built intake to utilize an Eaton M90 supercharger from a Grand Prix GTP. Also have a spare transmission w/transfer case.

    I'll try to author a build writeup soon. It will be a budget build writeup as well as I only have about $5K invested, including the new motor and spare trans. Craigslist is awesome!
