super charger

okay .. so my husband wants a supercharger for his truck.

he has a 2004 .. its a manual and its the 4 wheel drive package? I don't know much about it .. I know he was looking at the superchargers on ebay that ran for like 1200 to 1500 ...

when looking at buying one, what do you look for as in components. He wants to race the baha eventually and this is the first thing he wants to do. I want to suprise him, and he deserves it, cause I just boght a lift for my JK 4dr wrangler today (lots of money) ...

what do you recommend and where do you recommend buyig from? I want this to be his christmas presnet ...

oksu .. I just ran out to his truck ..

its a 04 Tacoma SR5 VG TRD off road package. It has a rear cab, but 2 doors .

i would say buy one from a shop that sells complete do-it-yourself kits that comes with everything you need down to the nuts and bolts. vortech, paxton, powerdyne, etc. they all make great kits but they will run you between 3k and 5k depending on what you want. i was thinking about a supercharger or a turbo for my 07 but i decided i'd rather do a v8 swap with a 4.7L v8 from a new tundra, it'll have the same power as if i added a supercharger or turbo, but no boost lag because it's all-motor, and much better gas mileage when compared to forced induction. also the reliability of a toyota motor is still there seeing as how it's unmodified

This is what you want for him. The engine code for the 3.4L V6 is 5VZ-FE. You will also want to get the 7th injector kit for it because the Supercharger for that engine tends to make it run lean and cause pinging/knocking. If you have any questions about what you need or any advice about it I really recommend Gadget at URD, that man has spent a considerable amount of time under the hoods of Toyota trucks and probably knows more about them than TRD does.

If you do end up getting him one I'd be wary of ebay, I've never bought or sold anything on there and I have a friend that was scammed on there buying of all things a supercharger for his Tacoma. Took him about a year to get something back.

How do I give you reputation? You have helped a lot .. actually. I think we got scammed last night, by a radio he just had to have .. and I am kinda afraid actually ... hopefully we get it.

How do you get ahold of Gadget at URD?

You can either e-mail (generally works better this way) them or call this address info@urdusa.com. Speak to either Brian or Gadget.

The kit you want is the TRD supercharger for the 3.4L part number PTR26-35962.
