I want a supercharger!

Hey guys, ive been hemming and hawwing about the TRD supercharger for my truck. really really want it

Didnt want it before because dad wouldnt cosign if i got it up front.

I only have a few payments left but, i want to know if you guys have any suggestions on how to get one other than having 5000 in cash on me, which i dont sadly.

Can i just add it to my financing now? or would i have to take out a small loan for it? any suggestions are wanted.

thanks guys,

For most people, I would recommend get a credit card with a 0% promo period for say, 12 months, buy it on that, then pay it off before the 12 month period is up at their own pace. Then close the account (with written proof of balance paid in full, of course). That's the easiest solution.

However, I have gleaned the following from your post:

1) You needed a cosigner for your truck, meaning your credit probably isn't good enough to qualify for such a promo in the amount needed.

2) The fact that you are asking this question probably means you aren't terribly familiar with financial tools.


So for you, I would recommend having cash on hand. Otherwise, you can quickly get yourself into deep trouble.

that makes sense, im part way there! i have 1300 in cash but im not sure whether i should put it towards an S/C or just other mods ??

since you guys are here you must be able to help me spend my money or save it? are the s/c really worth it or if i wanted power i shoulda gotten a bigger truck?


Sorry to vent but i just feel kinda bored with it cause its like every other taco in my town, like everyone has one, i just wanna make it more unique ya know? thats why i bought the tx pro, and the small life, maybe i should button it up with some new rear shocks and coils? some steps and a tonneau?? sorry guys just thinking outloud

Slow down.

Figure out what you want to do with your/your dad's truck.

Also, are you in school or working?

This, i know a super charger seems like the shit now but once you slap it on there you still got payments to look forward to. IMO its just a thing that can only be enjoyed if it is payed in full upfront.

Save your money and wait until you have income to start buying stuff.

Budget comes first, bills come first, retirement comes first, THEN you can start thinking about some toys.

For now, sit on that cash in case of emergency.

More importantly: Supercharging trucks is fucking stupid. If you want a horsepower king, they make vehicles specifically for that. They're called SS Camaros, 5.0 Mustangs, Corvettes, and 6.1 Challengers.

If corners are more your thing, get a Porsche or a Subi.

I am neverendingly amazed at how many people buy a vehicle and try to turn it into another vehicle. Get a truck if you want a truck, and get a muscle car if you want a muscle car. Don't take your 4wd to the track, and don't try to carry mulch in your 'vette.

if you want to make it unique, grab some aesthetic mods. BHLM your headlights with HID projectors, grab some tint or plastidip your badges. relatively cheap stuff that makes the truck stand out.

Believe me, even the small things help...Hawaii has the most tacomas sold per capita than any other state in the US, theyre EVERYWHERE.

I have an S/C on my truck, it was a hell of a time to install on my own. Considering it says you have an 2011, your looking at having the dealer installing everything for you??? might end up costing a little more then 5000$ depending where you go...

This. There's a LOT you can do to make your truck stand out without spending a lot of money, provided you have tools, a little patience, and are moderately handy.

Read around the site some.

Thanks. It's been a lot of work, and there's still a lot left to go, but I like where it is and where it's going.

save that money, in the future if you want to travel or do something like invest you'll have the funds to do it. You have your whole life ahead of you to invest countless dollars in your truck when you have a wife and kid(s) and dont see the light of day outside of work ,lol

A blower would be nice for the extra power but in the end the truck is still slow.

I owned a pickup truck and i owned a 97 camaro ss at the same time. when I was out with my camaro and needed to haul shit, i'd have to go home and get my truck, and when i was out with my truck, i wanted the power.

I got rid of both and consolidated my needs into my XRunner, it can do everything I want from going to the mountains to snowboard and go offroad to camp sites and still push 215km/h. To each their own, and i understand the point your trying to make, but SOME people do actually need a vehicle that can do it all.

I stopped count at 400 driving around the this island...in an hour


Still, them aesthetic mods work wonders. Before my lift and tires and whatnot, just switching out my lights and adding gnar supah cool decals did the trick of it being recognized as "cody's truck"
