    Not really what I did today, but the whole week. Took my taco on to Toyota (last time I go there unless absolutely necessary) for a full inspection (was overdue). Found out I had a snapped in half rear leaf spring (, 2nd leaf, no my truck doesn't qualify for the recall absolutely pissed about that) , my front diff needle bearing needs replacing (though not needed to be done right this minute but definitly over the next month) and I'm pretty sure my CEL/Trac off is on because of the useless secondary air injector sticking. Toyota wants 1300 to repair the broken leaf (fucking ripoff) and 590 to repair the bearing (another fucking ripoff). Gonna keep an eye on the air injector.

    Good news! I told Toyota to go somewhere else regarding the leaf spring, and will be upgrading everything to OME this Friday! . The bearing I can do myself or get a buddy to help me out with. I may even get the shop installing my suspension to do it as well since they will just have to pull off cv axle so not much more in labour. Not sure yet.

    Are those cam gears beneficial for all 4.0's or just for supercharged engines? What's the benefit of them? Thank you!

    Who said I didnt?o_O But in all seriousness it was pretty easy.

    Flushes the cylinder more completely during the exhaust stroke, thus allowing for more fresh on the intake stroke, has to do with the exhaust reburn efforts by Toyota to improve emissions output.

    And my truck is stock, with no boost makers because I am way to cheap for that road.

    8-1/2” Top x 8-1/4” Bottom x 3-7/16” Height. Draw a rectangle find the center of the top (4-1/4”) and bring to the bottom. Measure 4-1/8” from the center line at the bottom and connect. That will give you the exact angle needed for the sides.

    Have always hated digital clocks. I like the aesthetics of an analog clock. To answer your question, I guess 4 if you include the radio, my wrist watch, my phone and now this clock. Trying to buy more time as I get older.

    I ran it prior to the tune for a week, it felt as if I had more power low to mid speed, of course that is completely subjective and I have no data other than my butt.

    As far as mpg improvements I have not finished tracking that yet will pipe in when I do.
