    I'm looking to add a SC to my 1999 PreRunner (2.7L). My goal is to get more power to pull my travel trailer. I'm looking at the LC and the Alpine but understand there is the low boost and high boost option. Anybody have thoughts on which one would be better for towing purposes. Thanks!
    :cool:

    Get the Alpine. Stick with about 6 psi or so, and you should be a happy clam. :)

    yeah the 3rz charger wont make it a 1/4 mile screamer but it sure changed the manners. used to take 1/4 throttle or more to get her rollin from a stop now its 1/8 or less but 1/4 is much more fun. The high rev's really makes her move out but there is lots more power across the whole spread. I have kinda gotten used to it but there is a huge difference in torque.
