    I was thinking this morning on the way to work. Try disconnecting your battery for a good 30 minutes.

    Then reconnect it. At that point, drive around taking it easy on everywhere you go. The ECU will learn a new "driving style" of yours. It might help.

    Also, being that your speedometer is now off due to a larger tire size, it will also make it look like you haven't driven as far, as it would with stock tire size. Thus it will make it seem like you are getting worse MPG.

    Hey OP, in your truck description you say you have flowmaster true duals - so you probably don't have any cats in your exhaust. Without you cats your probably not running at optimal fuel effeiciency.

    Take a chill pill there. Don't let words on a screen upset you. I kinda agree with him though.

    Anyway did you see the post above? You claim true duals. Is this what you have? True duals means each bank has a separate exhaust that never merges at any point. If you bought a Chokemaster kit then they are not true duals.

    True duals:

    Easy starting point: What are ALL of the differences between your truck and your buddy's?

    And relax, man. Fuel economy questions come up all the time, but the reality is that you're driving a truck, not a car, and your calculations are going to be very off if you're going by your odometer since you swapped tire sizes.

    Well we have the same exhaust. He has the 6 in procomp lift He has 20s with 35s And he has a cold air intake. Which I will have as soon and the company I ordered from decides to ship it. But I have the 3 inch leveling kit with 33s on 20's.

    X pipe aids in scavenging and efficiency. Not the problem. Would you mind posting up pics of your exhaust work done?

    The intake doesn't matter since all they really do is make noise.

    I agree with you, that on some vehicles a aftermarket intake doesn't do much if anything. On the 1GR Tacomas however, it does. Op, if you want an intake that is known and proven to work well on the 1GR get the 1st Gen TRD intake, AFe Stage 2 intake, or the URD intake. Just check out www.urdusa.com

    You didn't mention that it works at high RPM but does nothing for normal street driving or MPG. More than likely he is adding one to gain some MPGs.

    My stock OR rims are 22lbs a pop w/out tires. You sure this is right with a 20inch rim AND a tire?
