Towing with TRD Supercharger

Does anyone know how the TRD S/C affects the towing capacity of the 4L Tacomas? The DCSB is rated at #6500. Does the S/C increase this rating, and if so, by how much? I'm looking for a little more umph with the 2014 Taco for trailer towing, particularly at altitude in the mountains.

Towing isn't all dependent on hp. Wheel base, leafs, etc all play into it.

More power = easier to pull the load, won't increese the amount you can tow.

You'll have more umph, as in able to get the trailer moving with less effort. But you can't tow more weight.

Might as well get a tundra if you need to tow more than 5,000 pounds on a regular basis
