You can start by changing the exhaust system and put a free flow exhaust and change to a large size of tires, air filter also can help

for starters: an INGEN cold air intake system change the type of oil used to full synthetic (either Castrol Edge or Royal Purple) change spark plugs to Iridium change fluids on tranny + the filter (use Mobil1 Full Synth, if automatic) find a TRD hearder & use Magnaflow Exhaust system & (the "culdegrah") find a TRD programmable chipset Total cost: around $4000.


Thank you. Got a couple extra horses after that.

Also, Ive been looking for a good chipset. But have yet to find one. Do you know any good website that would have one for this make and model.
