    okay so i have an 07 2.7l 4wd and i need more power out of it bad. i have a k&n intake on it, a muffler and soon plan to do header back exhaust, but thats pretty much it. i am thinking about maybe boosting it with a turbo or super charger, but im nervous too. i cant afford to lose my truck so i am afraid to put one of these on and ruin my motor. also i can barely find anything about them anywhere for my year and motor, plus for a 4 cylinder. is there any other good way for me to get power or does anyone know anything else about the turbo/supercharger kits?

    I was planning on doing a re gear to help turn my 33's, but i want more power than just that. any other ideas other than boosting it?

    Nothing short of boost will give you a big jump. You can run intake, exhaust, header and URD MAF and you may get 15hp max.

    Supercharge that thing. Or turbo, but there doesn't seem to be any "bolt-on" kits. Not that any forced induction is ever a simple bolt-on.

    well boosting it would deffinately be the best thing for power, but i really dont know a whole ton about them. how much of a risk will i be putting my motor under if i were to do that?

    thats what i figured. i hope that someone gets one out soon for the 4wd or that i can find one atleast. do you know anything else about this, maybe a date or whether it will be for the 4wd too or not?

    This. But it's made for the Hilux and the pipes go below the frame rails, no bueno.

    Negative.

    Correct, and it costs $4,000.

    Negative. URD has no supercharger kit available for the 2TR.
    They claim it is in the works, and we have gotten a sneak peak at the prototype, but that's it.

    OP, read this...http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/4-...evelopements-supercharger-18.html#post2901536

    The kits are complete and well made. You don't run much of a risk of causing damage but as with all engines under boost, they won't last as long as a non boosted engine.

    well, i need this truck to last for about 5 to 6 more years with little to no problems. is that going to be possible if i would put a super charger on it?

    Umm, you're not adding any considerable amount of boost here. lol

    Your motor will have the power of a V6. lol

    yeah, and thats still not too good at all. there just doesnt seem like there are very many options for trying to squeeze any power out of a 4 banger tacoma.

    Not with our engines, no.

    First gens, yes. You can turbo 2/3RZ engines all day long @ 100k miles and be fine. I know a few who have.

    id like to trade it for a v6, but im going to work with what i have for now. probably wont ever put a turbo or supercharger on it, but i will squeeze every bit of power out of that motor in other ways.
