Regeared after supercharger?

Anyone regeared after adding a S/C? Thinking of doing this to make up for the weight I have hanging off my Tacoma. It still has plenty of power but immmaking it work pretty hard. Anyone?

Not worth it, unless you have an extra $2000 laying around that you don't don't kn ow what to do with. Now, if you're going from a 31 to a 35 tire, then I would consider it.

For example, 4.56s with 37s and a SC would make sense. I've even seen that combo on a 1st gen Tacoma.
You might assume that but the fact is with the heavy front and rear bumpers, snugtop, racks, stereo, dynamat, etc, the engine is working harder to turn those 3.73's. I can tell a big difference with the setup I have now. Before the weight additions I hadn't thought much about regearing because, you're right, I didn't notice the 33's (I could haze them!) but what I've read is that 4.56's will bring the rpm's up to stockish with 33's- I think it'll crawl easier, have more pep at slower speeds around town, and perhaps wear less.

What are your thoughts? am I off base?

Unless you buy KM2's, these bitches are heavy on my 2.7L

I've researched it and considered my setup and I've had a change of heart. The thing I like about the S/C is that the engine doesn't know it has all the weight behind it. I think the only advantage to regearing is pep below 45 mph. It might be quicker off the line or something crazy like that but for a daily driver or an expo rig a regear (after a S/C) I've decided is unnecessary. I like the fact that I can drive 70 at 1900 rpm and still have the torque to climb a hill or pass a car without a gear change.

UM... Is this an automatic thing, because I can tell you that at 70 my S/C 6spd is not doing 1900 rpm. I wish to god it was though...
