    DT headers would tie in what you already have.

    To be perfectly honest; I don't think there is much bolt on stuff that we can put on our trucks and feel any actual performance gains. Our trucks are very well tuned. By our I mean tacomas in general no variance between 1st and 2nd gen. However I would think a URD Intake DT long tube headers, and almost any muffler will be a good choice. Then to have your vehicle calibrated for the performance parts. MHO.
    Gadget would be the person to speak with, these mods won't be cheap but will function as a whole. What about the Supercharger, cost would be around 3k and I haven't heard any real complaints.

    Save up for a Supercharger, headers will give about 1o and not really worth it without the supercharger

    gotchwa!!! thats what I thaught, but I really dont think a supercharger is worth 3-4K, I just want some more power and to open it up a little more. Complete my setup, you know? But if its ganna give me less then 10-15HP, then I dont think its worth the 500bucks.:(

    Yeah, I know it will.
    But is there something else I can do that give me a small boost in power? Headers is one, to complete my setup. But is there something else? MAF calibrator I think will only help me in WOT. which is what I dont need.

    Thats the same understanding that I have for the MAF Cali. we really don't have much performance options, especially if you are like me and looking for low end torque.
