98 Tacoma 2.4 4 cyl

I have two questions for the group.

First; My engine has less power than other 2.4 Tacomas, but has good compression, My truck came from California, do California Tacomas have higher emission standards that restrict the performance??
If so I'd think I could just change the computer, anyone know about this?
My truck has 100,000 miles, standard trans, extended cab and is a 1998, all stock except for a stainless flowmax muffler.

Second; I'd like to get those rain guard deflectors for the side windows, including the rear side popouts on my extended cab, ebay only has for the door windows and not for the popouts, any suggestions??

thanks, Nick

How well have you maintained the engine. A 100K mile engine that is down on power a bit isn't unusual, and the 2.4 isn't exactly a powerhouse to begin with. It probably just needs some attention.

The rain gaurds are all over the place, just google them.

change all your fluids and plugs. the 3RZ is a great motor and does have good power. there a common swap over into the 1st and 2nd gen trucks.
