a lot of people around here go forced induction. intakes don't do jack up here.
i supercharged my 2009 tacoma with the TRD kit, now it runs like its supposed to.
i plan on running a smaller pulley to get back the 3psi we loose at altitude. i'm looking into a quick change pulley so i can run a larger pulley if i ever plan to go to sea level.
like i said you get used to it eventually, but when i go on a trip, rent a 4 cylinder, it has more pep than our v6's in a lot of cases.
it's a % of loss about 25% therefore we get close to 230 hp out of an IS 350
we generally get slightly better MPG though as a tradeoff and because the air pressure is less 91 octane fuel is less of a necessity for us. i still use it, but you could probably get away with 87
