    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    You need to put a little snake oil in your gas tank, should increase MPG's by a lot, and power increase.....

    OP, they spend so much money and R&D nowadays to get the most out of these engines in MPG's and horsepower. There's not a lot we can do to get a huge increase. Unless you want to strap on a supercharger, but you'll only get power out of that, and not MPG's.

    The best thing you can do, is to watch how you drive. And to keep up on your maintenance.

    Hope that helps!

    I actually own a unichip for my 08 dc v6 tacoma. It piggybacks and tricks your ecu to get more outta your bolt on aftermarket parts (exhaust, intake). I love mine. It is great. YOu have to send it to unichip or a dealer to reflash for your bolt on parts. I'm actually thinking bout selling mine if youre interested. Need cash now to buy alcans to fix axle wrap. :-(
