    Wow! What a rush! :D It feels just like the '98 Camaro SS I had ten years ago. You owe it to yourself to get supercharged if you can come up with the money. You won't regret it. :cool:

    So how much did your fuel economy suffer? Just wondering.

    I only have about 45 miles on it so far, so I can't say anything about the mileage. I did have my local dealer do the installation for warranty purposes. Total cost was $3750 for the SC (eBay, so no taxes or shipping) and $630 for the installation. Not cheap, but it will put a permanent grin on your face when you romp on the throttle. :eek:

    Watch your SC belt. Mine and a guy from TTORA had ours go within 100 miles. I was able to catch mine and get it to the dealer before it got totally destroyed.

    I have 1500 miles on mine and am happy. I did find out that I have to add 5 gallons of Sunoco 104 Unleaded per tank of gas. I had bad detonation when the temps started to get warm, even when using premium (90 here in AK).

    Pretty loud when the RPMS get above 3K with that TRD CAI hu? It's such a beautiful sound.:thumbsup:

    The TRD superchargers are legal in all 50 states. They are not legal in CA when used with the TRD air intake. :)

    I've got a supercharged mustang, does that count? lol ..

    No kidding there is no other bolt on mod you can do that will give you the same type of gains as boost.

    And your using little to no more fuel at cruising speed as long as the engine is making vacuum.
