    Has anyone had the Toyota supercharger kit installed? How much did it hurt mileage?

    I do not have one but, from what i read. If you dont step on it all the time and drive normal you should see the same MPG's as before install. Supposedly highway mpgs improve slightly

    You gain an ever so slight amount of mpgs.... but you also wont be able to stay of the skinny pedal since you have a SC so in reality your mpgs go down.... way down...

    View the build. Too much to list.
    I have the stock pulley on my supercharger, and if I drive normally it barely even winds up. But when I get on the gas, it's definitely there. I would say my mileage is the same or maybe better for normal driving.

    Mine stayed the same when I wasn't romping on it. Bypass valve does wonders.
