    Installed yesterday and I picked the truck up last night.Again,a big thumbs up to East Coast Toyota service for being the only dealer in my area that would do the install in the Toyota labor book 6 hours.
    Ok,back to the SC.
    It's friggen awesome!What a difference!
    The power,the sound...it's great.
    If there's any way you guys can get one....DO IT!

    I hate when people post these pictures up...Now I have to figure out a way to justify this to my wife.

    Good looking install. How's the driving experience? Can the tires keep up with your desires?

    The wife looked at it and said "you paid how much for just that?You,re nuts!".:DShe's hasn't been in the truck yet with it installed, yet not that it would matter.:)
    It's a blast! Night and day from stock and I haven't really pushed it.Just played a little from a 20 MPH,30MPH,40MPH rolls without really flooring it.
    Very quick and sounds great.

    Tell her she'd be entitled to half of it in a divorce.

    Not sure how that'd go over, but please video tape the conversation and post it up here for our entertainment. :popcorn:

    I could also try to use the excuse that I need this to make our cars equal in value.

    maybe the mpg's will go up due to the engine not having to work as hard sometimes????

    NOT!

    More power = more fuel burned = more fun :D

    These electronically controlled fuel injected engines are running as lean as practical to start with, cramming in more air so you can burn more fuel won't help in the MPG dept.

    So how much of a HP increase is the TRD Super Chargers supposed to net?

    That looks VERY SWEET btw :D

    With the power,I'll play more for awhile using more gas.
    I just got home from a ride to Home Depot and I must say the engine feels like it has more than the 68 HP or so the SC adds.It's got to be the added low end torque that makes it seem like more of a HP gain.

    I don't know but it looks like they took off the whole top of the engine as it's sitting in the SC box.:)

    They probably just removed the plastic intake manifold.
