Texas_Ace 2000 Toyota 4runner Dyno Run with TRD Supercharger, Headers & URD 7th injector kit
This is the Dyno run of my 2000 toyota 4runner.
It has the stock 5vzfe 3.4l V6 in it with a 1st gen TRD Supercharger installed. I also have Doug Thorley Headers, URD 7th injector kit, high-flow cat and a few other goodies.
These runs were done with the 2.2 and then stock pulley. I ended up finding that my belt was slipping or for some other reason i am not getting any extra Boost with the 2.2 vs stock. I ended up making the same power with both due to the same Boost (about 6psi).
Final power outcome was 225hp and a tourqe "curve" that was FLAT, you could put a ruler on it, You can view the uncorrected Dyno sheet here, it also shows the comparison from the stock intake with elbow removed and the cold air intake. The stock intake is the higher one.
Remember though, tune needs a little work and the stock airbox with ISR intact and a dirty air filter (didn't even think about the filter until i was on the Dyno). The Supercharger also needs new roots (the ones in it have 75k+ miles on them) It was also heat soaked BAD, every run we did, had less power except for when we let it sit for a little bit.
Without all of that i am sure I am putting down at least 230hp - 240hp at the wheels.
Then get the 2.2 pulley to work and provide the 9.5psi of Boost it should and i should be in the 260 - 275hp range.
Plan to get it re-Dynoed after fixing said problems.
Wipeout hill - Seven Mile Rim - Moab Utah - 4Runner
On a recent trip to Moab Utah a group of us did seven mile rim. It was a
blast to say the least and wasn't over the top challenging. This optional
obstacle on the other hand is very difficult hence the name "Wipe out
hill." It took a little scraping, but we managed to get my friend James up
the hill pretty quickly.

Forced Induction - Supercharger vs. Turbo Charger
This video was made to describe in moderate detail the differences between
Superchargers and turbo Chargers, as well as describing the
components, advantages, and disadvantages to each. Complementing the
speaking track is a slideshow of related pictures and videos. I hope this
video helps some of you curious up and coming mechanics to better
understand methods of forced induction. Please comment maturely, and

(HD) Texas_Ace Methanol Injection nozzle comparison review with slow-mo

Please note that these are the old style Devils own nozzles. The new models
are supposed to have a significantly better atomization although I have not
been able to get my hands on them yet.
This is a video comparing a range of the more popular methanol injection
nozzles. I have been asked many times what nozzles I prefer so I decided it
was time to just run a test with all of the ones I have to see what was
The video explains most of this in detail, if there is anything I missed
leave a comment! I read/reply to comments on my videos!
Final verdict of the nozzles is like this:
1st place: Coolingmist CM nozzles - Best atomization and good overall spray
pattern. Nozzle body is just fittings though.
2nd place: Devils own nozzles - Marginally behind the coolingmist but still
perfectly acceptable. Better 1 piece nozzle body.
3rd place: Becool (ebay) nozzles - To be fair this was a larger nozzle so
it is not a direct comparison but it did seem to have the largest droplet
size to my hands even taking that into account. Marginally behind the
devils own. The wide spray patter is not for every situation either. They
are the cheapest nozzles and for the price they are still a viable option.
4th place: AEM nozzles - These are in 4th place mainly because the only way
to get them is to buy the AEM meth injection kit. NOT recommended. The
nozzles by themselves are ok, wide spray angle like the becool but they do
atomize pretty good. I would say on par with the devils own. The treads on
the nozzle tip are strange though so it makes it hard to tap for these
Overall, Coolingmist is what I would try to run but any of the nozzles will
work just fine. The coolingmist nozzles by themselves are very pricy and
honestly I don't think it is worth it to buy them at full price over a
devils own nozzle. If buying a methanol kit though the CM nozzles are a big
point in favor of coolingmist for sure since they come free with the kits.
Buying a separate nozzle after the fact, at full price, think I would just
go with devils own nozzle.

2014 Toyota 4Runner Trial Edition Off-Road Test Drive
For nearly three decades, the Toyota 4Runner mid-size SUV has been a
stalwart for off-roading enthusiasts seeking a SUV with rugged, go-anywhere
capability. Currently in its fifth-generation, 4Runner continues as one
of the few fully capable mid-size SUVs, and the redesigned 2014 4Runner
receives a rugged new exterior design, and interior refinements that add
comfort and convenience without sacrificing its hallmark performance
capability and excellent value.
The 4Runner combines rugged body-on-frame construction with comprehensive
suspension technology that yields optimal off-road capability with a smooth
ride and comfort more often associated with crossovers. The 2014 4Runner
is available in three grades: a well-equipped, value-driven SR5;
top-of-the-line Limited, and a Trail grade for those who want maximum
off-road capability. Optional third-row seats on SR5 and Limited allow for
up to seven-person capacity.
4Runner owners will have the choice of a rear wheel 4x2, part-time 4x4 or a
full-time multi-mode 4x4 with a locking center differential. All models
are equipped with a powerful 4.0-liter, 270-horsepower V6 teamed to a
five-speed ECT-i automatic transmission and one of the few vehicles that
continues offer a transfer case.

2014 Toyota 4Runner Limited Test Drive Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/toyota/4runner/2014/?id=32972 For 2014, Toyota has
subtly restyled the 4Runner. The Limited model seen here benefits from a
unique grille treatment, 20-inch aluminum wheels, and tons of chrome.
Overall the 4Runner is a great looking SUV. This is still an off-road
vehicle and the 4Runner gets skid plates on all models. The base price for
the SR5 trim is $32,820 and the top of the line Limited will start at
Under the hood is a 4.0 liter V-6 engine that makes 270 horsepower and 278 lb-ft of
torque. The transmission is a 5-speed automatic. Fuel economy is 17 MPG in
the city and 21 MPG on the highway. The 4Runner has a 3rd row and thus can
seat 7 passengers. The inside is very comfortable with easy to operate
The 4Runner is designed first and foremost to go off-road. Thus this SUV
can go anywhere at any time. If you are the type of person who loves the
outdoor lifestyle then the 4Runner is a great choice. For the rest of the
commuters out there the Toyota Highlander is a better choice.
