Its a lot more complicated than o turbos aren't for low end torque blahblah it all matters what you want and psi doesn't matter its volume of air I ran 44psi at 675hp and my new set up at 30psi should be 1000 . If you want a tire Brunner go small turbo or a s/c you need to learn more about performance before you ask a question like that my s/c car was decent but now I'm turbo all the way because now there are twin scroll. Billet ball bearing turbos that'll build more and faster hp than s/c

Yes you are. That was right after the twin build was completed. The shop quickly found that they needed to upgrade the fuel pump. At that time/date, Gadget hadn't yet released his URD fuel pump upgrade kit. This was early 2008.

The impressive point to notice here is that how immediately the torque comes on. Almost full torque as soon as the thottle is buried. This was a 7psi pull.

Thumbs up

I'm no technical expert but I got the SIngle Supercharger on my 2012 Taco for the Torque throughout the powerband since I pull a 19' Travel Trailer. It seems to do this flawlessly with very little if any drop in MPG. I also got a Catback exhaust added at the same time.
Love my Taco!

thats really cheap and it doesnt say what kind of stainless it is with a turbo kit you want at least 304. you still also need an intercooler fuel management fuel pump and larger injectors then youll need to tune it to

I building this early 2014. See my build page, half way down page 1 for my shoping list. Total cost is somewhere around $2500-$3000. About what you would pay for a SC/Fuel upgrade.
