Hey Danny
Im not a big fan of the color red, But I will give you credit so far so good. The seat covers you have are they the graphite ones sold by the dealer. If so let me know what you think about them pro and cons if any. That grill is Big Dog I can always appreciate a unique set up. Keep up the good work and of course what next for the Taco?

Seat covers are OEM covers. Covers do not cover all of the seat just the face, which kind of defeats the purpose of having a seat cover. But, they say "Tacoma" on them !!!!

The grill also helps protect the radiator. No bugs or leaves get to it now.


Next will be a custom intake with the biggest air filter that will fit.

This was the one of my 04 f-150 that i made vs. stock.

I like the seat warmers. Nice touch. Did you just mount them under the seat covers? On my list of things to do is a Scan Gauge also.

I like the looks of where you mounted the gauge. Maybe more details of how it is mounted please?

hey danny, more power to ya, but bigger doesn't equal better. translation...a bigger air intake doesn't equal more power. i'm not familiar with how the ecu handles it and where the maf is. but, most of todays modern vehicles are tuned and designed for the way they come from the factory. when you start changing something like the air intake which could affect how well the engine breathes, the ecu may not recognize it and the engine may run dangerously lean. i'm coming from the wrx crowd and an intake was the first mod newbs wanted to do. well, it isn't good to lean out your engine

I realize what is going on here. I have a pyrometer to see what's going on with the EGT's. I saw 150F difference with my F-150 mod.

I pretty much will be studying the TRD intake very well.

I'm really am only looking for better MPG and response.




I used a GPS mount from Best buy to mount the Scan gauge to the A-pilliar.



Will post more later !!!

Very true. You don't want to grenade the engine with a lean condition. But if I remember correctly from another thread, our Taco's run fairly rich. I think it was measured with a wide-band o2 and read around 11.5:1. So the addition of an intake doesn't do much to threaten the lean condition. And from other posts as well, it does improve throttle response and increase engine noise at WOT, but that's about it.
