    I think I paid $3499 for the S/C and fit kit.

    I installed the S/C myself but had to pay $160 for Toyota to flash the ECU.

    Overall, I'm very happy with the performance of the truck, post-install.

    I am in CA so 91 is the highest we get at the pump. Luckily I have 100 at the pump at the local 76 station. If I tow, I usually add 5-6 gallons per tank with the 91 octane.

    cool... So it's pretty easy to install or what? The highest I've seen here is also 91 octane... Also, how long does it take for toyota to reflash the ecu? I would imagine that it doesn't take too long ...

    we took our time, double checked everything, and it took us 8 hours. We routed all the wiring hoses how we wanted them and had to move a few items (HID ballasts,etc). It's actually a pretty easy install, taking parts off is easy and the instructions are good. I took the radiator out and removed the TRD airbox, etc. At times the instructions seem out of order, but follow them because there's a reason they ask you to install certain things at certain times (pulleys, brackets, hoses, belts, etc).

    Have FUN!
