    Well I am a v8 guy but I am tired of my foxbody and want to do something different. My work is saleing a 1998 tacoma 2.4l 5 speed with 272k miles, the truck is in good shape, but needs a clutch the price is cheap. I was wondering if it would be worth my time to put a new clutch in and a supercharger kit if I can find one. I am wanting a good daily drive that can run with the local street cars. Any info or ideas would be great:D.

    If you can buy the truck and fix it for $4000, then I would go for it.

    I wouldn't supercharge a truck with nearly 300K miles.

    Buy it, SAS it, lock it, crawl it.
