What's up Taco dudes? I'm probably the only member here without one. Why? Because I have a Jeep JKU. Why? Because it has a solid axle and your cute little Tacos don't.

Just kidding, Tyler told me to say that. I'm his wife and he wants me to use the forum. What am I supposed to do, trade the Jeep in for a Taco?

I love his Taco as much as he does, but we also have a 2013 Jeep JKU that has been across the country and off the beaten path many times over, including Easter Jeep Safari in Moab.

He also has a 1984 Chevy K30 (military truck) that he is neglecting cause of his Taco obsession.


Anyway, if you guys have other rides, post some pictures!

How does this V8 compare to our V6?

The v8 is more torquey. I know the numbers are similar on paper, but it's just something you notice by feeling it, and it's to be expected being a v8. And the OEM tune is superb. One of the OVT maps I compared to this 4R, in that it reached the point where driving the truck now had you feeling the weight of the vehicle (as you do on the stock map) except that now the truck can get out of its own way lol a further map revision by OV eliminated this though, resulting in a map that left the truck feeling a bit lighter and more nimble. I.e. application of power/more power probably tweaked, idk. Hopefully all of that makes sense.

Just differences in tuning really, which has a direct impact on a lot of aspects of the vehicle. Stock for stock, the v8 and its OEM tune is superior by far to the 3GT w/ Auto Trans, and that gap is lessened by my Manual trans I would say, just because the OEM tuned AT has some frankly dangerous aspects that can be avoided or mitigated with the manual. With my truck being OVtuned, I wouldn't say that the 4R continues to be superior, just that they behave differently. That being said, my v6 still can't deliver that low end torquey kick in the ass the same way that the v8 4R can.

To summarize, the 8 is better than the 6 out of the box. The 6 can compare after OVT. But we all know the 6 should be better or at least turned correctly, so that kinda sucks.

EPA regs and the push for greater gas mileage and using a tune to mask tuning issues by nerfing the truck into the ground is a factor too. Bummer too, cause while I don't care about gas mileage, that v8 still does get better mileage than my Taco lol

that was the next step if the clutch wasn't slipping and the synchro for 3rd didn't act up while passing a toyota dealer :ROFLMAO:

Yep! Took about 9-10 years to get it to that point. I bought it bone stock from the original owner.
Dang! Do you have a build thread somewhere? Or would you want to post one here in the off topic forum? I'm interested.

M3 Build Thread here and I can piece together a concise version for the off topic forum here one of these days. I'm honestly just awful at updating those types of threads. I don't think I have added most of the mods to the car in that thread and haven't posted the more meaningful things haha.
