    I don't want to spend more than a grand. I figure that should be enough to get some good shit....not top of the line and not cheap shit.


    But I have no idea where to look and waht to look for :o

    Dosent TRD have this stuff? If not, AEM, Fram (I believe makes some intakes now) Volant, Ect.
    Exhaust : Borla, magnaflow, something of that nature... other than flowmaster.

    several tacoma-enthusiast sites have demonstrated that intakes actually HURT performance on their 3400 4-cam.

    As for exhaust, there is no performance to be had. You can actually lose a little bit. If anything, do it only for sound. And then it costs less than $150 for a good muffler to be put on.


    btw, I owned a 2004 Tacoma Double Cab Prerunner V6 TRD Off-Road and I bought an Injen intake that was later removed and sold about a week later. Horrible.

    I am thinking magnaflow for my F-150, the sound clip on the site sounded good.

    Its basically a high air flow filter similar to a K&N but only Fram on a tube that provides less air restriction and greater air flow

    they are all the same basically.. its just design and materials for intakes that makes the difference.

    It has been proven time and time again, that an intake does NOT help your tacoma V6.

    And the FRAM is just an AEM with a sticker on it. Fram bought the AEM design.

    It's actually a re-branded AEM. No difference other than the "FRAM" sticker.

    here's a quote from someone who is regarded as one of the more knowledage 5vz-fe (your motor) enthusiasts:

    [​IMG]

    And there you have a nice Dyno graph showing that the K&N FIPK has a healthy LOSS of power THROUGHOUT the power band. With a 10HP LOSS at peak HP.... And another loss it seems at the low-end.

    Worthless product to install.
