    LOL, I dont think Im a Guru, But thanks for the kind words! :)

    What Tigerfan, and the others said, get the TRD unit. Also get the 7th injector kit URD sells. All the 3.4's are the same weather or not they are TRD.

    7th Injector kit, Trans Cooler, Donohoe c/o's, Billy's in the rear, FJ Cruiser Trail Team SE wheels.
    Putting my .02 cents in here.

    I had a s/c installed at the dealership soon after buying my '03. Also at the same time did the TRD 7th injector kit and a trans cooler.

    Honestly, I was not overly enthused...sure better performance, but, not terribly for the money invested. I went back to stock after the nose bearing went, and had not done enough research that a factory nosedrive was available, the stealership simply wanted to replace the entire unit.

    In hindsight, having known nothing about Gadget and URD at the time, I would have spent the money to really make it sing!!! New pulley, new injectors, new fuel pump, new headers, and then remap the computer. Then you really have something!!!!

    Would I do it again? Not with simply the s/c and 7th injector kit, NEVER. Especially with 93 octane at $4.50.


    I do not believe you can use your CAI with the s/c without remapping the computer...furthermore, I don't even believe you can use the deck plate mod? I had talked to Gadget at length about these...he is truly the one to consult.
