    I believe it does, the 3.4L is only in the 1st gen Tacos which run from 1995 - 2004

    It should be worth it even if it has to be rebuilt. I got mine for $2,700 with the charger and 7th injector kit.

    7th Injector kit? What is that and is it required? Thanks for the help on this one. Want to buy it for my '04 but hesitant not knowing much about them.

    It is a piggy back system that makes it run better and most will say it is required and I would recomend it to get the most out of the supercharger. The kit can be found at URD a vendor on here.

    Cool same one I have. Well you would have to take it apart to look at all that and I wouldn't know what to look for. I know if you have any doubts with it call the guys over at High speed lab they can rebuild it for you for around 400-500$ so worst case scenario you are in about $1,000 for a supercharger.

    It is also aroung $1,000 but IMO worth it.

    Make sure your CAI (Cold air intake) is compatable with the S/C for starters. some aren't but most are. but you'd rather be certain.

    3000$ +tax and install seems a lil high to me, not too bad, but I'm sure you could negotiate that price a little bit

    Exhaust is not Required, but it would be useful in order to get the most power out of your upgrade

    You should see the size of my beer bong, 3 stories tall, 3-stage 1.5 horsepower water pumps. Takes 2 kegs to fill it.

    When you go to look at the S/C, Just be sure the blow off valve is intact and everything. They can be damaged easily on shipping and stuff. Also check for any play in the nose drive. And check to make sure all the bolt holes are intact, they are known for breaking off.

    Here a few a sites on basic supercharger knowledge..

    http://www.ultimateyota.com/index.php?option=com_openwiki&Itemid=60&id=wiki:trd_3.4l_supercharger

    You will want to change the oil in it when you get it.

    Extra things you will need are the TRD "O" throttle body gasket, OEM check valve, new belt for S/C (might as well replace all the drive belts while you're down there too).. Thats all I can think of.
