    For those that are counting, total cost so far is $2,380, about as much as a new TRD SC.

    That said, got the TRD port fueler + injectors + harnesses used, AEM FIC used, and a cheap Felco 255LPH pump ($50).


    Crossing my fingers on the pump :pray:.

    Got the Transmission Valve Body off today for shift kit install. Not too hard but very messy. Didn't get many pics due to being covered in trans fluid but got a few.

    Draining (fluid is nice and clean because I got a flush like 2 months ago. What a waist :():

    Pan off. At this point things got very messy so pics were put on hold:

    I had to rush the VB to FedEx to catch the truck. Here is what is left (Ill be covering it up shortly):

    Expecting it to be returned by the upcoming Friday for install.

    Those lights are def a good deal. Nice and bright and no leaking/fogging yet (been rained on a lot). 1 relay, yes.

    Thanks man. Was saving up for a TRD blower but when I saw this kit for ~$1000 cheaper, I knew I had to have it. Got very lucky and got some used parts, but buying used, Ill still be at the same price as the TRD, URD 7th, and pulley, but with more HP :D.


    No just to find some time to install... :(

    Transmission update:

    VB was shipped late. Installed Wed. No shifting. Turns out, VB was shipped with a defective gasket. Getting my truck towed to transmission shop this Saturday. Expect to get fixed Monday...

    Full review on the guy that did my shift body work pending final install, etc... So far very unhappy with how he's addressing his mistakes :mad:

    I really want to but then I would need a regear and twin stick... I got a few hick ups to figure out before I even start the damn turbo... :(.


    I was hopping to be done by Feb but now my mark is by the end of Feb...
