New guy here.....
Just got me an 07 Tacoma...2.7, reg cab(yep, little guy)... I bought a 3" lift kit from toytec.com... gonna put some tiers and rims on her....
Now, with such a little motor, and goin big , I was thinkin about puttin a power chip in. Or a "Reasonable" way of tryin to get a little HP out of it...
Any help would be greatly appreciated..

no "power chip" is gonna help if they even make one for your truck.
Regear the diffs and youll be set.;)
x2. its the 2.7 its been around awhile so do a search for chips and you will see they are a complete waste of money. regearing your diffs is the only way to do it. do a search for regearing to find out more.

the 2.7 is a good engine but like any 4 cyl it doesnt make much at low rpms, regear cause you probably have 3.58:1 gears

I had the 2.7 with 32's and there was a noticable power loss, but I had no problem driving around town or on the highway. If I remember correctly, I had 4.10's but I am not sure. It was actually quicker than my 3.4 after I put a new clutch in it. I could chirp the tires shifting into third with 32's if that gives you an idea of the power loss.

32"s with a 2.7 and you're fine... i lucked out and have 4.30's stock in my reg cab 4 banger, and the loss of power and pull is noticable - but i'm happy with it. i'll be going up to 4.88's soon, so when i step up to 33"s i'll be all good.

it seems like there has been a real explosion of 2.7 related posts - much more than in the past. anyone else notice this?

i'd definitely go with 4.88's

4.56's at the bare minimum, AND you can find 4.56 in early taco's with the auto tranny
