I finally hit the 5yr/60k mark so it is time to add the supercharger that I have been waiting for. I figured now is as good as any to stop lurking and start posting.
My truck in a 2006 4x4 and so far the only pieces I have ordered is Doug Thorley long tubes, AFE intake, and 255 LPH fuel pump. These pieces should who up this Friday so I am going to go ahead and install them. In a week or so the valve train will go to IPT to the upgrade. More or less I want all the "extra" prep done before putting the supercharger on.
The supercharger is going to be ordered in ~3 weeks once my bonus shows up. Here are the current options I am looking at and I am at a bit of a stuck point and could use some insight. (note the dealer will charge me 110 for the reflash)
1.) TRD Supercharger + 2.8 URD Pulley (using reflash from the dealer)
2.) TRD Supercharger + 2.8 URD Pulley + larger injectors and mapecu3 (no dealer reflash)
3.) TRD Supercharger + 2.7 URD Pulley + Larger injectors and mapecu3 (no dealer reflash).
4.) TRD Supercharger + 2.8 URD Pulley + NST Pulley + Larger Injectors and mapecu3 (no dealer reflash, is equivalent of about 2.6 inch pulley)
This is my daily driver and I can only get 91 octane around Seattle (I am about 30 miles east of Seattle). The temp rarely passes 70 degrees up here and most of the time is between 40-60. The elevation is about 100-400 foot. I do use my truck to tow/haul around town and over the pass so it needs to do that, I am open to getting the 7th injector as well if needed.
My concerns are that option #4 will be the equivalent of a 2.6 inch pulley and will generate around 9.5-11.5 boost, this also has a new crankshaft pulley and people haven't really ran that long enough to know any negative effects. The 2.7 inch pulley sounds appealing but I have to send the snout off to get ground down, this isn't such a big deal if I do this before putting the charger on.
More or less I don't want to throw a rod and blow the engine, but I want to maximize the safe limit with 91 octane and lower ambient temps.
Does anyone have any opinions on the setup(s) or run something similar? I thought I would start over here first before heading over to XR forums
