Keep telling yourself that. Just remember. A blown 3.0 is still slower than a stock 4.0. Oh and don't worry. I hate my 4.0.

Anyway roller rockers will wake your engine up.

Like I said. I wouldn't even do this to my 4.0. I almost did then I realized then I wouldn't have much more than a stock Tacoma and less then a Frontier. I say just throw an exhaust on it to make it sound good and save your cash or spend it on a toy.

Uhhh no. Its the plain truth. Rangers make the least power out of any truck out right now. Also I got smoked by my buddies stock 4wd Double Cab Taco and I had intake and exhaust. I was standing still compared to him. If you want something fast get something fast or get something with a better engine.

So you think. Go test drive one with a 4.0, you will HATE that 3.0

Also a 5spd swap if yours is a automatic will help you off the line if you can drive on. also giving us specs on your truck would help. Just a tip :)

Yeah when i first test drove my current truck with a 4.0 i was like holy crap i actually move when the gas is pressed to the floor, unlike my old 3.0 that didnt go any fast it just kinda sounded like it was gonna blow up if i floored it.

You could always do a cam. But then your pcm will have to be reprogrammed so it doesnt throw misfire codes

I call BS on that. 230-323 horsepower to 20somthing.... umm yeah the modded 3.0 will walk a stock 4.o.

Gears will help some but a supercharger will help the most check out Thomas Knight thomas knight : turbo upgrades + superchargers

I think Im retarded but I like my 3.0 sure Id like more power but dont we all... I like it because its reliable and I get about the same gas mileage as a 4.6 or a 5.4 on the highway.... if even better. On RangerPowerSports theres a lot more performance How to, on here they are more Lifted suspension oriented.

yeah if you think a blown 3.0L doesnt walk a 4.0L your a moron. and the 4.0L have 207 to the crank. and a blown 3.0L will have 220-323 to the wheels. and i like my 3.0L. And yeah the new tacoma x runners have 245 hp but uh they aren't that quick. sucks that you get smoked by frontiers and tacos. i have held a decent amount. i cant hold an x-runner though.

No kidding....i drove my buddy's 3.0....talk about 3.slow!!! what a piece. It had the power of a dang 4 banger. and his gas mileage aint no better than mine! I love my 4.0L. True,

it may not have the HP that a tacoma and nissan has, but i wouldnt buy one of those japanese (or whereever they're made) peices of crap anyday!! My 4.0 has all the payload and power as well as torque that ill ever need!
