    I had a 1992 Toyota truck extended cab 4 cylinder with 31’s on it. A good friend had the same truck with 33’s and a V6. After riding in his mine was sick. I couldn’t stand the 4 cylinder but they are tough engines.

    3.4 is not underpowered, it does much better with the 5 speed tho.

    If you think you need more power the supercharger will add 60-100 more horses depending
    on the pulley size if you need more.
