    ahh thank you ive been waiting for a first generation to respond.
    okay i have 136k miles on my truck and i know that the transmission in it right now wouldnt handle a supercharger very well. idk what to do with it.

    can you tell me what you had to do before you got the supercharger installed and running????

    thanks

    well you need to elaborate on what you mean by the "transmission in it right now wouldnt handle a supercharger very well" ....Are you auto or manual? If it's an auto, is it starting to slip on you?

    I have a manual tranny and didn't do anything to the truck before I installed the charger...

    what i meant was will an automatic transmission with 136k miles on it handle the power and torque gains from the supercharger without tearing it apart? Of course with the mileage I have there is no warranty left and I would rather rebuild tranny if needed before installing the s/c. At the current time the tranny shifts great with no slipping what so ever.

    I just put a TRD SC on my auto with 212,500 miles (now have 216,000), all stock and original. So, the answer is yes, the auto will handle the power. If your tranny is fine now you shouldn't have any problems after the SC install. The only thing I would suggest adding is an aftermarket tranny cooler.

    Good point about the auto trans cooler.
    You be the supercharger king with the Taco, Cummings, and the Buick.
    I had the Cummings in a 2003 Dodge and that truck would pull anything.

    damn good question, id like to know too.
    i dont think there would be a problem.
    my dad has an s/c on his 2010 tundra and all the guys on his site (tundrasolutions) have never said a word about problems with towing.
    but that is a totaly different ball game being the size and towing capacity difference of the Tacoma Vs Tundra

    TKGN1 I seen some of the pics of your s/c photos I have the same set up except the intake you got the original intake I got the cold airintake. Question I need to confirm that my vacuum lines are correct I can see them coming across but I can't see where you hooked them up too. The brake booster is easy the ones behind the s/c I can't see how the set up goes ? Can you advise me on that? Or post more pictures of where each jose is connected to and if at any point you utilized a one way valve hook up?

    Anytime you add more power you are putting more stress on the entire driveline. You should be OK hauling moderate loads with the SC, use common sense when pulling trailers ect. You can pull just the same with or without a SC, just don't try drag racing pulling the trailer.
    I run 93 octane all the time, to me if you are putting a SC on and plan on going the cheap route of running cheaper fuel, you'll end up paying for it down the road.
    Here is a link to vacuum routing for the SC. http://www.gadgetonline.com/Vac.jpg
    There are some lines not used based on what year model you have but this should get you by for the most part. For example, I don't have vacuum lines on the power steering or 4WD vacuum switch port, therefore I did not use those.
    If you are installing the gen 1 SC , use the factory fuel pressure regulator, don't use the one that came with the SC, the factory FPR will handle the additional fuel needed.
    There is a lot of info available here also: http://www.gadgetonline.com/Super.htm

    Just another tidbit for ya,
    You will learn by adding a SC that the engine will begin to starve for fuel at higher RPMs. You will have to install a larger fuel pump for sure. On mine i installed larger Fuel injectors and ignition timing and fuel map computer to get rid of the low rpm high gear knock. If you are truley serious about doing this project right, talk to Brian Trager at URDUSA.com. These guys are freaking excellent at these SC's. I would also reccomend headers and catback for max performance. I did all the above and gained serious HP and actually gained MPG as well. Really hard to keep your foot out of it though.
    Cheers,

    I really wanna get it running better and get a wideband and boost gauge.
    I drove it home from my shop and it was fine just doesnt have more power yet. Cuts out after over 1/2 throttle.
