Texas_Ace Toyota 4runner first start after Supercharger and Headers
This is the first start after i installed my TRD Supercharger and Doug Thorley Headers on my 4runner. Total install time was a stright 4 days, 3 of which was spent ont he headers and 2.5 of that spent ont he driver side manifold (both removing the stock one and installing the new one).
As you can tell it is running open headers here, i now have it welded and it purrs like a kitten. LOADS more power and I have not even installed the URD 7th injector kit yet!
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.
Turbo Supra 4Runner
Crawling in Moab, UT April 2009.
I was having trouble because I didn't have the rear locker wired up. Of course it doesn't help having wet tires. Unfortunately my baby had to be sold in order to purchase my FZJ80. Filmed and edited by user russtuff.

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 enjoy!
1992 4Runner 3.4 swap
Here is Nathans 3.4 engine swap with an Injen Tuned Intake and a new magnaflow muffler! TRD Supercharger and URD 7th injector kit to come! Seriously! The Supercharger should Boost power to 265HP @ 4,600rpms and 267 lb/ft @ 4,400rpms and the 7th Injector kit should Boost power to around 300HP as URD puts it Power gains are usually in the 30-40 hp range and sometimes higher depending on how lean your truck is currently running!
