Some video clips I took of my Toyota Tacoma Double Cab at various stages of modifications. Please keep in mind that these are pretty much for audio comparison purposes only. My shots are shaky and not high quality, just shot with a small point n shoot digital camera. First mod - K&N 57 Series High Flow Performance Cold Air Intake Kit. Second mod - Magnaflow Stainless Steel Performance Cat-Back Exhaust Kit. Three different shots were taken. First shot - inside cab, going from 0-60. (note-these were just done for relative comparisons and not done scientifically exact) Second shot - under the hood. Third shot - back near the Exhaust. Word of caution if you are considering these mods - at 4,000+ RPM the Intake is extremely loud and high pitched - almost painfully loud. And yes, it's true what they say - your lead foot will get heavier after these mods, thus offsetting any mileage savings you may have gained. If you can keep your foot from stompin on the gas, you should see some mileage improvements.

TOYOTA TACOMA STUCK ON BEACH
This driver made the mistake of driving n to close to one of our outflows . When you see a large stream of water on our Peninsula it is the the rain runoff from ditches and lakes . What happens is when the tide goes out the water will gouge out a trough in the loose sand . When the tide comes in it will fill the edges of the trough with loose sand . While it will look hard it is fact mostly water . It has the conistancy of quicksand . If you walk into it you will sink maybe 8 to 10 inches . A car or truck will sink to its frame . This occurs all along our beach . I advise people to not cross these streams at high water and at low water you want to go as far west as you can to cross over . This truck was in quicksand like material 2 hours before he called me . After the tide went out the water drained out of the sand and it was rock hard around his truck .
2010 TRD SUPERCHARGED TACOMA
Keep in mind I live at 6,500 ft above sea level. everything is warranted for the factory life of the warranty on the truck! when that is up I will have to upgrade the intake and pulley!!!
Tacoma running lean with TRD cold air intake fix.
I got a 2011 tacoma with a TRD CAI, S/C, and catback Exhaust. The issue many were running into was the 2nd generation CAI making things run a lean code.
Posting this because I have read about many people having this issue on their taco's
The fix was to cut off a piece of tubing that makes it fit in a Fj Cruiser. Thank you Toyota city Techs!
TRD exhaust sound
The sound of my tacoma's TRD Exhaust
Pretty mellow, but much better than stock. Just enough rumble to make it fun.

Toyota Tacoma Exhaust - Fortress Performance
Fortress Performance custom built 2.5 inch mandrel bent Exhaust system for a Toyota Tacoma 4.0l v6 with TRD Supercharger. The truck is retrofited with Longtube Headers and simulator cat's. We modified the after market Y-pipe and started with Dynatech V-bands then to a MagnaFlow 2.5 X-pipe then out to the back in dual's to a 2-in 2-out spintech muffler back to a pair of V-Bands then snaked it out the back to a custom stainless dual tip. The first installed system was a bit to loud for the customer so we installed 2 (one on each pipe) Hush Power mufflers. Check out the before and after sound.
Stay tune as we will be trying more combination to get different tone's and sound levels.
Best of the TOYOTA TACOMA
Montage of all my recklessness with the Taco! =))

Tags Say 1/8th irwindale track. That is why the Tacoma can keep up.
