    I just saw the STS remote turbos and they say they can be installed in any vehicle. I saw a few Tacos on Youtube but I cant tell if they are 4 or 6 cylinders. I have the 08 Taco. 2.7 I4. 2WD prerunner. Any one know or have done this to theirs? SHould I look into it or should I can that Idea.

    I would be careful, forced induction is not really a universal thing unless someone who really know what they are doing is setting it up. A non vehicle specific turbo has trouble written all over it in my eyes.

    However if you are good with mechanics or know someone who is, then it might be worth a shot. I have been watching for super charges for the 2nd gen engines
