    Hi,

    I know a guy who knows a guy who has a cold air intake, chip and exhaust on his taco. Says the power is awsome and his gas milage is way better. I was thinking of adding, one or all of these things to my truck to try and get to the performace level of my old truck and I have a few questions:

    Do I need to have all three to really make a difference?
    Is it worth the cost?
    Is the gas milage really that much better?
    What brand of CAI, chip, exhaust should I be looking at?
    What is the best bang for your buck if you were doing only one?

    Thanks,

    i didnt know anyone made a chip for Tacoma's... :confused:

    but, you wont see much of a difference, not enough to justify the cost anyway. ive been in Tacoma's with exhaust and intake and feel no difference. you might gain 2 or 3 mpg, but thats about it. like i said, not enough to justify the cost IMO
