Performance parts for 2.4 liter.

Hi my name is Josh and I own a toyota 1993 2,4 liter re 4 x 4 pickup truck. I am looking for performance upgrade parts, such as a cold air intake kit and exhaust headers, and a electric fan to add some power. I have spent countless hours trying to research power upgrades for my 2.4 liter. Iwas told the kn air take systems can ruin the air mass flow sensor because of the oil based filter. Is there any truth to that? I can only find pace setter headers for this engine that is reasonable priced. I looked at lc engineering way out of my budget league there. Any ideas or solutions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Josh B.

you can get doug thorely headders from summit at a decent price, you can get an electric fan from a taurus that works good. the stock intake is pretty good, but you can move the battery to the opposite sice and lengthen the wires for the airflow meter. oil from a K&N won't ruin these airflow meters, all the electronics are out of the airflow, its just a big flapper. i wouldn't run a K&N though, they let a lot of smal dust and grit through. a stock paper filter is fine.

Depends on what you are really looking for:

1) To make the truck look and sound faster? Then get a K&N filter, Doug Thorley headers, and a loud muffler.

2) To make the truck actually perform much faster and deliver better fuel economy? Then get Toyota brand W16EXR-U spark plugs from a discount Toyota dealer like www.1sttoyotaparts.com (888-271-3948) and a new Toyota distributor cap and rotor, plus new Toyota spark plug wires and a new Toyota air filter. Then add a new Toyota oxygen sensor. Next, adjust the valve clearances to .007/.011" with the engine warmed up and adjust the ignition timing to the stock setting of 5 degrees BTDC with the TE1 & E1 terminals of the check connector bridged with a piece of wire or paper clip. Finally, scrub the throttle plate clean using a toothbrush and some old rags soaked in carburetor or throttle body cleaner. These measures will enable the truck to reach 95 MPH at full throttle like it did when new and cruise 70 MPH on the freeway at only 1/4 throttle.

I bought E 3 spark plugs along with new rotor and distrubitor cap. Didn't buy oxygen sensor though. Is this pretty easy to replace? How easy is it to adjust valve clearance on the 2.4 liter re engine? Thank you for the suggestions.

take the E3s back and get some regular NGK plugs. they will do the same thing and are way cheaper.

it depends on how much money you got to sink into parts.but headers/decent head job/bigger exhaust at least a 2/bigger throttle body/lc engineering have them i am not sure the cost but probably over 200 with core.better than stock camshaft.

There's a tutorial here:
http://www.off-road.com/trucks4x4/ar....jsp?id=186494 but one mistake it makes is it recommends a clearance setting of .008/.012. But power and fuel economy won't be very good at .008/.012 so you should use .006/.010 or .007/.011 settings like the Toyota factory did when the engines were new.
