    I don't think anybody makes one yet. Rumor has it on CustomTacos.com that URD is developing one. Not sure, but maybe LC Engineering too.

    If Alpine is makeing it, Im sure the price will only be around $3000.00, and that should include everything that may be needed.

    I just got an email from Alpine Development so I don't think they went out of business. John contacted me telling me that he will send updates with the 05+ 2.7L supercharger kits.

    yeah sounds good, I knw they used to make the TRD ones and then TRD started using someone else for the 3rz. I believe you can still order the M90 Side Mount for the 3rz? But @ that cost Id rather go Turbo for around 2200$ from KO Racing.

    They always made them for TRD. They just had to use less boost/larger pully on the TRD units.
