    Hey, i've owned my toyota for almost two years and i am thinking about buying a supercharger to install in it. It is a'02 doublecab sr5 iwth an automatic. I heard that a supercharged engine requires premium gasoline only. I sthis true? What other mods can be done to beef up the power and speed abit?

    Fuel mods help with the lean out and pinging associated with being boosted. Fuel mods reduce or solve those problems. Did you click on that link I posted up above?

    The idea is simple. You' ve got more air coming in your engine so you need more fuel. If you decide to keep your stock injectors or change with bigger, you are gonna need at least a piggy back, like a s-afc or a e-manage ultimate to manage your injectors. Also, I think the supercharger kit you are gonna buy does not include an intercooler of any kind so you are going to have to run quite rich to keep the interns healthy. I'm talking about 10 to 10.5, 11.0 max of a/f ratio. I'm not sure if the stock injectors and your fuel pump are big enough to deliver that kind of fuel.
    I'm just talking by experience ( I don't wanna be a downer). I just don't want you to blow your engine because of a lack of infos.
    If you need any more infos, just pm me or post back on this thread.
    I hope this is gonna help you in your project.

    When I bought the truck it was used and and did'nt come witha few things namely the owner's manual. Because of this i have few questions that hopefully some of you can help me with they are; #1. What exactly does the overdrive button located on the transmisson selector do?
    #2 What does the green "extar power button" located to the left of the steering wheel and just under the instrument panel do?
    #3 The oil level dipstick that came with it has only two marks. What one is the desired fluid level?
    #4 When I first acccelerate in the morning it seems as if the differential "lags" just abit. What is this attributed to?:confused:
