Pulling onto a 40mph road was scary LOL
You can do that in just an hour and a half from Sacramento. I lived there 24 years. Tahoe makes NA engines feel like kittens compared to Sacramento.

In Utah at about 6,000 ft. it still pulls hard still beats almost everything I go against. Going into the mountains 8,000 ft and up it still pulls.
Bought the car at sea level.
Sea Level - 5,000/6,000 ft. is a big difference
5,000/6,000 - 8,000 ft not so much.

Haha! I agree, I've done that before with the Pickup. That 22RE did not like Tahoe but I survived. Maybe I was so accustomed to the lack of power lol

Yeah, you're already used to the drastic change. Forced induction is a beautiful thing, can't wait to get back into the Supra sometime this year.
