    Oh .. there's chips for everything.. But for the tacoma they're no better than potato chips. Just generic inline processors that mess with stuff.
    If even that.


    Why isn't this locked?

    Alot of performance parts take a while to come out, I know that on the aFe website, the intakes aren't there(pretty sure you can use previous years because). What were the changes between the 2010 and the 2011 anyway?

    On topic. I've only have had chips for diesels.

    If you could get better mileage with a programming tweak, toyota would already be doing it...
