Smile spraying an 01 taco

hi all i am new to the forum and actually just bought my tacoma about a month ago. it is an 01 regular cab sts with the 4 cyl in it though i dont know the displacement (2.7 im guessing). the truck is already somewhat quick but my prob is i cant leave anything stock. besides the massive audio system im looking to be adding a little more power and figured i could accomplish this with either a small turbo setup or run a 60 shot of spray. jw how many of you r running spray on this or similar sized motors and how do you like it.heres the kit i was looking athttp://www.jegs.com/p/Venom/941385/10002/-1
thanks

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

It will be cheaper in the long run to get an SC kit from Alpine Developments.

yea that kit looks great but on stock internals i could only push what 8 psi max and then id be making about 200 to 225 at the crank or i can spray it and be making the same power on stock internals and have 2500$$$ left over for fills and by the time i used all that nitrous the supercharger would prob be ready to be rebuilt. but i saw a thread saying you could use a buick regal super charger. and you can pickem upon ebay preety cheap so what would i have to do to make that work

In my opinion, juice is not the way to go. At least if this truck is your daily driver.

I would slap a super charger on that engine and be done with it. Sure you can make more power by spraying it, but I would be very suprised if your engine lasts for anywhere near $2500 worth of nitrous. Not to mention, a well done nitrous system will still run you a decent amount.
