    I'm torn on whether or not to install a supercharger on my truck. Give me your thoughts...

    #1 question,,,why would you want it?

    Speed - nominal

    Costs - excessive

    Gas milage - horrible

    Coolness - Outrageously high

    If you have lots of money to spend and dont care what the price of coolness costs then go for it.

    I think the tacoma has good power out of the box. Strapping a blower on it is going to make you as fast as what? A V6 Honda accord? Maybe?

    If you had a Mustang or Camaro sure. I think its a waste on tacoma.

    keep it coming...

    Premium fuel is of no concern, I'm already used to it. So we can rule that potential negative out.

    BTW, I'm talking about the TRD Supercharger.

    horrible gas mileage? honestly how bad can it be if you drive sensibly? if you have the cash go for a urd mark stage II turbocharger kit. 340+hp(but about 7k)

    nah, I don't really exceed the speed limit too much anymore. Plus I have a bike for speed. I can't explain why I want (certainly don't need) the supercharger, I guess since I plan on having this truck for a while it may as well be as good as it can get.

    If you don't offroad, definitely get the URD instead of TRD. The TRD is roots tyle which will give you more low end torque. The URD is turbine style which will give you more top end horsepower.
