TURBO OR SUPERCHARGER

I have a 2010 TRD Sport 4 Dr Prerunner. Love her to death. Handles great, lots of fun. But now I want to soup her up. So what's a great turbo or supercharger to look into getting? I keep hearing bad stuff about STS. So are there any others that are recommended for Tacos?

TRD supercharger is the easiest way to go (toyota will install)

URD supercharger systems Mark 1-3 can provide a lot more horsepower, but require more money and modifications to your engine... (install yourself or by recommended mechanic)

i havent heard of anyone using the STS turbo system on our trucks

if/when i can afford it, i am going to install the TRD supercharger

Your going to go through a huge run around with STS. A TON of plumbing, and IMO I don't think it's a great idea to NOT run an intercooler just because the air isn't as hot The superchargers kits are built, ready to go, and I mean hell. It's right there

It depends on your application or what you use your truck for.. SC will put a bit of drag on the motor due to the belt as Turbo will not.. there are pro's and con's on both.. Most of the time if I have a question about something I would Google it
