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 straight 4 days, 3 of which was spent on the headers and 2.5 of that spent on the 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
Then get the 2.2 pulley to work and provide the 9.5psi of Boost it should and i should be in the 260 -
Plan to get it re-Dynoed after fixing said
(HD) Texas_Ace TRD Supercharged 4runner Overview with Big Burnout & Street pulls!
Please comment below and let me know what you think of the video as a
whole, I usually make my videos much shorter then this, I am experimenting
to see if there is any reason to go into detail like this or if it is just
pointless and keep it to 1-2 min videos with no real details.
This video is about my TRD supercharged 4runner. This video Is a general
overview that some people have wanted to see. Starting about halfway though
the video is the street pulls and burnouts. If you just want to see those i
have another video with only the driving part of the video since most
youtubers have the attention span of a 5 year old.
In my other videos i show the truck on the Dyno, at the track, on the
street and a more in-depth mod list.
Feel free to ask any questions you want, i will do my best to answer them.
If you need more help then i can give, some boards to check out are :
www.Customtacos.com for performance questions
and www.Yotatech.com for everything else, this is where the build threads
for this truck are located under the user name Texas_ace
First Start with TRD Supercharger
We forgot one major vacuum line, a simple mistake. I have since converted
this truck to 4WD and it has a 5-speed R150F transmission. More videos on
that on my channel.
2010 TRD SUPERCHARGED TACOMA
Keep in mind I live at 6,500 ft above sea level. everything is warranted
for the factory life of the warranty on the truck! when that is up I will
have to upgrade the intake and pulley!!!

type of job. Check them out on Amazon with this link which will take you
to the automotive section, then click on Parts Finder on the upper left
side next to "Automotive" You can enter your car and find the correct
parts and will save that car information. Nice.

(HD) Texas_Ace Methanol Injection nozzle comparison review with slow-mo
Don't forget to Like, Fav, Subscribe. Then leave a comment letting me know
how to improve my videos!
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.
