    I have looked everywhere and cannto seem to find the answer.
    I want to put in a TRD supercarger on my 2003 Tacoma 3.4 l Manual, but am concerned with further mods.
    Is there anything i need consider when buying future headers or cat back?
    I want the TRD Headers and cat back. Would that go find with the supercharger? or do i want bigger pipes?

    It wont hurt but doesnt need it either. I think you should look into replacing your spark plugs (you need high performance platinum plugs if you dont already have them) and you should def use high octane fuel. If you get pinging with the super charger, you need to replace your plugs with cooler running plugs and switch to higher octane fuel (if you're not using premium in the first place).

    If you increase your boost, consider decreasing your spark plug gap just a tad.

    Thanks guys,
    I really want to do the TRD headers and exhaust come this spring. I already run premium fuel. thanks for the heads up on teh plugs.
    To me it looks like the plugs and wires are old and will need replacing in another 10,000 or so, so i will do this as well this spring.
    :)
