You've never heard of SAE, did you? It's like a new and more accurate way of measuring HP. But for the 2006 models, only a few companies started using this new measurement system, such as Toyota. And unfortunately for some cars, the new HP ratings make the engines seem less powerful (2005 Toyota Corolla : 130hp; 2006 model : 126hp. Or 2005 Toyota Tundra : 282hp; 2006 model : 271hp, etc... But in reality, there's no difference at all in acceleration times or whatsoever. It's just because HPs aren't measured anymore the same way than before. So there's way to be disappointed or anything!

I read that Toyota has been holding back the introduction of diesel vehicles to the U.S. and waiting for the cleaner diesel fuel standards to take effect.All diesel toyotas are selling well in Europe according to the article.Does anyone have any infomation on what cars and trucks will be offered and when?My opinion is that there comes a point when gas engines are too costly to operate relative to torque produced and only diesel makes sense.Pulling an 8000 lb. boat out of the water on a 10degree ramp works best with a heavy duty automatic transmission powered by a diesel with its max torq at lower speed.We are doing this with an old Chevy Suburban but it is sending a boy to do a man's work.A diesel Tundra would be much more civilized.Thanks for any infomation on what is coming down the pike.

The spy shot of the maxi cab looks like it could possibly have a sliding rear door like a van? Having owned the access cab I could appreciate the convenience of a sliding rear door.

I asked the same question. I was looking at a 2005 XSP 4WD which listed 282hp and 325fpt. After I ordered my 06 I called and ask why the horsepower was listed at 271 and was given your answer. I can tell you this Truck rocks, I drove a 06 F150 5.4L FX4 and wasn't impressed at all. Does anyone know where I can get a chip for the Tundra?

What will 3hp matter anyway after the redesigned 07 comes out?
Nice plug though(forum rules?), too bad we all don't live near Phoenix.

This discussion is about the 2006 Tundra. You might have some luck on our Speed Shop: Tuning & Modification board. There's a discussion about modifying exhaust systems, which might be helpful to you. You might also want to visit our Toyota Tundra discussion for current model years.
