    I remember talking with Gadget from URD at the last Shoe Creek run.

    (paraphrased)

    Him: "You know, it's funny, because one of our best sellers for a long time has been that 'supercharged' sticker we sell"

    Me: "You sell a lot of superchargers?"

    Him (laughing): "No!"



    Then we all went wheeling.

    When i did my 96 Taco, it really never changed much, if it did improve anything it was in the mountains on cruise control, because the added power allowed the truck to stay in high gear. It really does come down to your driving habits.

    If your towing, it will definitely help that out as well.

    im just curios... out of logic more power means its easier to move the truck wich in term means less load on the engine should equal better mpg, but i saw this post and i got curios... i will eventual get a urd sc for my taco...

    Keep in mind, while your MPG may not change you will probably have to start using premium fuel which will increase the cost significantly at the pump.

    Logic ain't workin' too hard for you there...remember the first law of thermodynamics?

    Where exactly do you think that extra power is coming from? Magic?

    You will instantly loose a few mpg from the motor having to spin the blower. It is adding a fair bit more load.
