    Ok,
    So as the title suggests I am purchasing a used TRD supercharger with 32k on the blower. It is missing a few items and I am hoping that I can buy some random parts that I am missing from members here as opposed to buying them all new and save a few dollars. The big ticket items I am looking for is the injectors, and tune. I prefer to buy new plugs obviously but the injectors and tune are almost $1300 by the time it’s said and done. Any help here would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Jump in the S/C thread here and ask around to see if someone will sell you their 455cc injectors. They just had a group buy with 30+ ppl that got flow matched injectors, so this could be a good cheap way to buy a set used

    As for tuning, you should get the TRD supercharger flash, and then get HP tuners MPVI2 and have someone on here help you dial it in. Here is a thread for the MPVI2

    How much is the blower? It’s going to cost around $24-2500 (they did just raise prices so it could be more). Plus you should factor on a rebuild $5-$700 unless the blower is $1000 it’s cheaper to buy a Magnuson blower new unless you have to have the TRD. I was going to buy a newer one and backed out due to the costs to make it work. Spending on what you have you could lower it but Magnuson sells packs in the fit kits

    If you have most of it then like the other guy said jump on the thread and pick up parts folks may have. I’m waiting on my SC to arrive and I know I’ll have some new spare parts. There are a lot of parts In The fit kit.

    Awesome. Sheesh I’m going down such a deep dark rabbit hole now!

    Everything else is there minus really a few small things, if I can get some used injectors and some knowledge on tuning I feel I will come out ahead on the deal.

    Seems like everywhere the S/C kit is 5400 and most of the parts I am missing are less than $700 with the exception of injectors and tube.

    This is everything I am missing... minus their ridiculous injectors and plug prices it’s relatively inexpensive.

    I wouldn’t bother with the Bulley Dog tuner. Get the TRD flash from a dealer.

    And I may be upgrading my injectors soon, when are you installing the blower?

    In a few weeks. I’m hoping for just that. Someone who is upgrading or has upgraded will sell me their other injectors. I am not I repeat not going full regard on my blower install lol
