anyone run a angled defouler for O2 sensor after a High Flow cat? not sure if can do that on a tundra, i have one on my modded civic si to place the sensor a little back and reduce any CEL chances.

I am debating calling keith this thread is a killer tease! jba lt, 3" dual x pipe.

i have to pass MA emissions. CT is similar. technically your not allowed to mod the exhaust at all here, i don't care about that never had anyone put a vehicle on a lift and I got bagged with a straight up race exhaust on my Civic SI (headers,no cat, 1 silencer,, muff) and they never even looked underneath at the special inspection station.

I just have to pass emissions here. we are allowed 1 OBD2 monitor not passing here as an FYI.

My old 02 tundra ran JBA,gibson ss single exit,y pipe. was awesome. BAM+JBA sound better! Goals are HP+Torq gain or why bother, stealthish at cruise. Some noise at stomp.

Hey Keith;

I am a Member with your Tundra Tuning Group on Facebook as well, but still not totally decided what I want to do after lurking there and following your thread here. I missed getting the TRD Superchargers when they were still available at a decent cost but don't want to spend the extra $$ for the Magnuson units (yet). I have a 2015 Flex Fuel 5.7V8 with the TRD exhaust with no other engine/drivetrain mods. The Tundra only has 8000 miles on it, so thinking of playing it safe with a header system (possibly with a proven tuner) for more low end grunt and midrange passing power while staying compliant with emissions; thoughts? I also had a couple of EcoBoost F150s with the twin turbos so a big fan of turbos too; any options for current Gen?

I am curious if anyone else running an SC Tundra that has added the Auburn gear and 4.88 gears notices a slight reduction in acceleration performance? Seems like it should make it much more peppy but the acceleration seems to be less and it is really bugging me after spending so much money! lol

Magnusson is testing ffv2015 right now Will be released soon

or, our exhaust with YOUR stock cats. I can build them into a bolt on system.

Definitely give a call to kick around ideas.

I'm surprised to hear this. It should make it peppier.

You're missing some slicks. I bet you have a traction issue that is making it feel slower.

Thanks for all of this information. I have a 2008 SC double cab. I am still reading through the pages. I am possibly wanting to install Bullydog and also upgrade my exhaust at some point. The previous owner had basic duals welded in (catback).
So thanks OP and the rest of y'all for taking time(and spending money) to post information and results.

Haha. The 93 tune is perfectly safe. It uses the stock fuel curve.

It's the 95 tune I would never consider.

The 95 tune is premium? With the trail tune being 93?

Oh never mind that last reply, reading a little further taught me that 93 is a SC tune and the trail tune is for my naturally aspirated truck

Call me lazy for not wanting to measure and research, but what part number filter did you use to fit in the fender well????? I have been thinking of a way to clean up the engine bay and this looks great! I was just about to do the stock air box mod when I saw this.

Tried looking for a sticky and a link to your Electric Fans. Do you have a pic tutorial as well?

Electric Fan We make a bolt on electric fan for the Tundra's. The results are better throttle response, better low end torque. More fun to drive. It's definitely noticeable. No dyno testing has been done, but other members have dyno tested electric fans and have seen small gains. Definitely a mod worth doing!!

I know its out of date, I no longer have the R1 nor the BMW, but, I don't like seeing the "create a custom SIG

There's no tutorial. But it's easy. We make a bolt on shroud. And you just need to get the fans. Which we can give part numbers for. Give a call and I'll explain it. 760-877-4234
