    I found a 1996 extended cab Tacoma with TRD supercharger installed at 80,000 miles. The truck has 175,000 miles. Will the engine be okay with that many miles on it? What type of maintenance will the supercharger need? Will the SC be reliable. What is a fair price for this vehicle. I am really tempted to pick up this truck.

    Vehicle looked good and the supercharger was impressive. I should have picked it up, but I walked away. Price was $5250, lowest I have ever seen.

    superchargers for the 3.4l go for a good 2500 dollars. that would have made the price of the truck stock about 2500. KBB it and see if it comes close to that. Engine should world just fine

    The Supercharger I heard will wear out the engine a little quicker. But If it was takin good care of and not raced all over, It should be just fine.

    If it is a manual yes, if its an auto, maybe drive that thing check the gears. no hard shifts? no slipping? then still maybe

    If its a 4x4, the truck is worth way more even without the supercharger. KBB is like carfax, it'll give you a general idea but to adhere to it is foolish.
