    Probably not going to be able to do much in the way of HP gains short of a blower.

    That’s right. Maybe he needs a GoFundMe Page too? Just a few more dollars kp and you’ll have that snorkel.

    What about like an air intake or a cat back exhaust. I’ve heard those add some power to it. But I’m not sure if it’s worth it.

    I’ve seen a few of them on jeeps but never on a Tacoma

    They’re around. The 2019 TRD Pro will have them stock.
    @kp.taco is saving up to put one on his second gen.

    They’ll say it will but you're going to need to get on a Dyno before and then get one after to see if you do or not. I can tell you it will.

    At the end of the day it’s still a Tacoma. They’re just not designed to be powerhouses. Their excellent, and maybe even the best, at what they do and what they’re designed for.
    You’ll pull a few more horses out of a blower, exhaust, etc. But I’d be careful with the truck due to its age. That’s just my thoughts.

    Yeah, I would have to see what small mods I can put on it and not make it look like a Riced out truck

    I feel like this needs something. It’s missing something.

    It’s missing a junk yard. Someone needs to put that poor truck out of its misery.

    No something else. It needs something added to it. There’s just not enough going on.

    Or he could make some custom chrome fender flares for it.
