You may want to go the Supercharger route

Good info on Turbo vs. Supercharger
http://superchargersonline.com/content.asp?ID=19
http://ezinearticles.com/?Turbocharg...rgers&id=11280

Unlike the turbochargers that require cool down time, or warm up time, the supercharger is ready to go when you are. At 2000rpm, boost is already available with a supercharger. When it comes to fuel efficiency, superchargers actually kind of help to improve your MPG. The reason for better mileage is the fact that you do not have to drive the engine at full throttle due to available boost. However, anytime that you drive aggressively, fuel efficiency will suffer.

Superchargers also tend to last longer than turbo chargers because they do not require much maintenance and have a self contained oil supply.

Toyota makes a supercharger for the Tacoma. I'm not sure who makes a Turbo for our trucks.

Thanks, Good to know! I just remember Turbos of old. Having to let the engine idle for a while as the turbo cools down.

If you were going the turbo route. Wouldn't it make since to upgrade to a performance cat & exhaust?

You almost have to- You'll be getting a Turbo Manifold to operate the turbo. All that would be left would be the cats and back. And not having the right outlets would induce the dreaded lag and work the bypass/blow off valve alot harder (depending on the location of the turbo)

My vote is still for a S/C- This engine is powerful enuf that a bit of parasitic drag isn't gunna hurt and it'll develop power in a more useable range.

They sound better too- but that's just IMHO.

I'm with you. I think the SC is a better option over the turbo.

from what i've read and seen with the sts turbo system there is no need for a performance exhaust

But if you are sinking big $$$ into a turbo. It seems silly not to spend the money on exhaust.

The STS turbo system replaces the intake and the complete exhaust system, STS is a remote system that sits the turbo under the back of the cab instead of under the hood. Basically the turbo is the muffler from what i understand. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MVTdz2tj1q8

Yeah...I think there is another thread about that STS system- Remoting a turbo to that location means you have to worry about ground clearance and standing water- That is a HUGE turn off for me for that system.
EWWW...plus you can hear the lag on that first pull- It might just be cause of where in the rev band he was and how soft he hit it- but lag = bad...

I would consider a turbo system under the hood with the right wrap or water injection kit and ducting for heat management- but but with a "OEM" S/C out there- i just couldn't pull the trigger on a system like the STS....

the newer models of the sts system come with snorkel kits for the intake in all truck and some car applications

pick your poison: the supercharger whine or sweeeeeet sound that a turbo makes
