You have no idea what you are talking about. Boost will give you HP, not torque? That is ridiculous.

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.
Sir why do diesels use turbos? they use there trucks, like my companies trucks haul 23,000 pounds daily. no superchargers on anything that hauls loads. i see them on dragsters were it is huge power rather than low end torque.

and you will never lose power with a turbo. unlike a turbo a supercharger takes power to make power. Dont have to worry about turbo lag either most modern kits and most modern turbo vehicles dont have turbo lag like they used to.

No sir, you have no idea what youre talking about.

The only people who have turbo lag are the ones who think "hey , i got a turbo laying around. Let me just throw it on"

A properly set up system wont experience lag.

My upper is built with cams from LC with an LC full header back exhaust including their headers. Now I have a little low end TQ like stock maybe a little more but up high is were it likes it. If you want to feel cheap power just gear it.

Supplying air to the combustion chamber at greater than atmospheric pressure is called supercharging.

Supercharging is accomplished with a device called a blower.

There are two main types of blowers in use today;
1. The gear driven, positive displacement roots type blower found on two stroke diesel engines, adapted by hot-rodders for automotive use.
2. The belt or exhaust gas driven, non-positive displacement centrifugal blower (referred to as a turbocharger) also used on diesel engines is the type more commonly found on street legal cars & light trucks.

Both types of blowers only supply air. To make more usable HP & torque you need a larger fuel delivery system, hotter spark and a more efficient exhaust system to go with that extra air.

How much more usable power can the 2.7L 2TR-FE make?

Huh? Way to take my response out of context. I was responding to Blake who was talking about making HUGE power. Show me a turbo that will have no lag and make HUGE power. You're dreaming. HUGE power isn't 400whp, it's more like 800whp.

Also ,you're the guy who said turbos don't increase torque, just HP, meaning you've lost all credibility a while ago LOL.

Done schooling you kid. Have a great 4th.
