^ unfortunately hes right. Boost will give you HP. Not torque. Gears will give you torque also

4:56 gears or 4:88s for torque... Headers, exhaust and supercharger for power





other than that your doomed...unless of course you drop a larger engine in like the guys said

If you just have the turbo itself, no. It's a paperweight. Sell it on Ebay and get some cash.

For a little more torque, get a LCE header. Good bang for the buck. It's equal length and helps at low RPM.

To shift the powerband down altogether, regear. See below.

Then there are 4.10 gears which come in the 2005+ 4wd/Prerunner 4 cylinder trucks. 4.56 and 4.88 are available from aftermarket retailers like East Coast Gear Supply or Randy's Ring and Pinion. Dakota Digital makes an electronic box that adjusts the speedo to be correct, although I'm not sure if it works for the odometer.

I regeared my 5-lug manual to 4.10's after lifting and larger tires. I replaced the speedo gear with one from a 4 banger 4x4/prerunner to correct the speedo and odometer. I don't know if you can do that with automatics. I haven't had any adverse affects and it's been about 2 years since I did the swap.

Go to customtacos.com. Tons a good turbo builds that make awesome power. Turning is going to be easy on a I4 and if you know wtf your doing fairly "cheap". Not that any options are going to be

Or I'd say get a 4.0 1uzfe Lexus v8 for cheap. Or 4.3l 3uzfe Lexus v8. I wouldn't really go for the 2uzfe in a 5 lug

Next would be 2jz. But those are pretty pricey to find and mod.

Not going to see much from intake and exhaust.

Or check out URD supercharger kits for your motor. Work great too. Totally bolt on.

If you're 21 and have shit credit I would worry more about fixing that than getting more torque out of a 4 cylinder truck mommy and daddy bought you.

How would i regear my gear box, as I do not know as much about transmissions as I wish i did. I did not think they made superchargers for the 2.7l.

That's good to know because I am more of a fan of superchargers, but thought I was just stuck with turbos.

Turbos are more efficient than superchargers. Superchargers are just easier since its kind of a 'bolt on' so more people have em.

hit it right on the head. Have Toyota bolt it on for you and not have to worry about anything and get little power or pick up a wrench and install a turbo and you can make HUGE power

Depends on what you use your truck for. Not all of us are looking for "HUGE" power, and with "HUGE" power comes turbo lag and lose of tq down low, something someone who uses their truck, as a truck wouldn't prefer.

If you got a newer truck, go with the TRD Supercharger. You keep your warranty, and with just a couple upgrades like a pulley, full exhaust etc, should be in the 350/400 range easy with a fat torque curve.
