TRD Supercharger

I was thinking of installing a TRD supercharger on my 98 Tacoma. Has anybody had any personal experience with the set up. My truck has 105,000 miles on the odometer but it still runs good. Just doesn't have the power I want and a Tundra or it's equal is not in the ole budget.

Re: TRD Supercharger

Becarefull slapping a postive displacement device on a motor that old. Rings and seals that are holding now may not under 6-10 lbs of boost.

Re: TRD Supercharger

It should be fine. Just make sure all of your stuff is tuned up, new plugs, cap/rotor, wires, PCV (especially important in a supercharged app), fuel filter and bolt that baby down!

Re: TRD Supercharger

I'd replace all the consumables hidden by that bad boy BEFORE the installation. Water Pump, Thermastat, belts yadayadayada. Hammertime!

Re: TRD Supercharger

My father works for toyota and I can try to get some numbers if that helps. I know they do 2-3 per year at the dealership. As for the life of the engine, it is a toyota, but I would also get it checked out good first.

Re: TRD Supercharger

I say you know the answer best - in how you take care of the engine. In the right hand's 105k on a Toy. motor is just getting broken in, and in the wrong hands it's about 200k away from failure

I'd say comp. check and leakdown if feeling totally anal - or just make sure your timing is up to par and ditto what figment said. Prolly a good time to start running a decent grade synth oil too.

Then again, Toyota was building high-mileage engines long before there were synth oils around to take credit for it . I say go for it...if you want more pay a visit to the Tacoma section of tundrasolutions.com or search for the TTORA website (tacoma owners group, i guarantee 5 people there have done what you're asking about).

Re: TRD Supercharger

Thanks for all the suggestions. I will certainly do a complete tune-up before installing the supercharger. Gonna have to check out a few of the mentioned websites also. Thanks.

Re: TRD Supercharger

Not sure what kind of boost that makes but The Paxton on my Ranger is 5psi max. I put it on when I had about 170k on it

Re: TRD Supercharger

I would like to do that with my 03. I guess it gives you an extra 112 peak HP and something like 102 torque. That would give my stock 03 taco 302 HP I see them on eBay for like $2,500.

I have read somewhere that it gives about 6 to 9psi of boost. Should put hp in the neighborhood of 260 and just a little more on torque. CBRBob, did you notice significant gains with your Paxton?

Yeah that 7th injector kit would be nice but can't fork out the extra $. You can shop around and find the supercharger for around $1500.

Re: TRD Supercharger

FWIW, 7 PSI is .5BAR (it actually means you are seeing 1.5 BAR), and theoretically is good for roughly a 50% increase in HP.

Re: TRD Supercharger

just throwing out an idea I have which makes sense atleast in my head. I think a compression check might be a good idea. Find out what its suppose to be stock and then check what its currently at. If your compression is down for some reason I say get that fixed before putting the sc on there. but chances are you'd notice if a cylinder was really lacking compression and you say its running good so it should be fine. But a check never hurts.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

what are you trying to say? is a leakdown test just another name for a compression test?
