    Started out when I traded in a blue 2008 sport double cab for this Magnetic Grey 2015 sport double cab. Jumped on it because manual Toyota's tend to be unicorns and it was newer with less mileage of course. Stuck a supercharger on it cause these things need to go faster and it was something I wanted to do for a while.

    Tacomaworld got me by the short and curlys and due to the supportive and badass supercharged community on here I have less money and my truck goes a lot faster. I'd do it again.

    Fully debadged, I need updated pics.
    Engine/trans mods:
    -Ported Magnuson supercharger
    -2.3 Smoothflow quick change pulley with ripp mod
    -Aquamist HSF-3 methanol injection system with two 320cc nozzles installed
    -Mightytacoman cam gears
    -Clutchmasters Hydro bearing
    -Spec Stage 3+ clutch
    -URD lightweight steel flywheel
    -NST gold (crank, SC crank, water pump & alt) pulleys
    -Core/Hurst T-handle short throw shifter
    -AFE Magnum cold air intake with 3" 4runner/FJ intake tube to 76 mm Tundra throttle body. 4runner/FJ MAF spiced in and adjusted for flow in HPtuners.
    -URD equal length headers (the 05-11 ones)
    -Walbro fuel pump
    -UPR billet catch can
    -Battery relocation to behind rear passenger seat and larger SC intercooler reservoir mounted where battery used to be.
    -Higher flow SC coolant pump (Bosch 03920-022-002, 5.28 gal/min)
    -NGK Ruthenium spark plugs (LFER7BHX/95125)

    Belts not on yet but the best view of the blingy pulleys.


    Custom aluminum headlight fluid cap.... Cause I'm a dork.


    Random mods:
    -Gas pedal spacer to bring pedal level with brake pedal for heel toe shifting
    -AEM 30-4110 afr and 30-4407 oil pressure gauge
    -Black cat customs gauge cluster faceplate
    -JustDSM HPTuner'd with rev hang deleted
    -Bullydog Gt platinum digital gauge
    -Headlight Services Harness and upgraded bulbs
    -Grillcraft upper and lower billet grill
    -Locking tailgate
    -Bakflip HD tonneu cover
    -Stealth Custom Series dark bronze F5 rims
    -Nokian Rotiiva 265/70r17
    -Remote start was already dealership installed by previous owner
    -Black heated leather ass warmers, also already installed when I bought the truck
    -Up2NoGood's heated mirror kit
    -Napa Legend AGM battery NAB 349AGM
    -Energy Suspension poly radiator bushings
    -Rear diff breather mod
    -Fully debadged
    -High performance start up screen


    The future wish list:
    -Full time traction control kill switch so I don't have to hold the button for five seconds when I'm stopped. I think this one will be best incorporated after a Tru-trac gets installed.
    -Tru-trac
    -Cutting brake would be fun as hell
    -Hammer hangers with brace
    -Better radiator
    -Install my Bussman RTMR and run the SC intercooler pump off it.
    -Some sort of flow switch for intercooler.
    -Roostfactor y-pipe and better exhaust
    -Better stereo and speakers and sound deadening
    -Under hood lighting
    -Maybe a mild lift (thinking 1") at some point
    -FJ transfer case. Never been a fan of the electronic actuators.
    -Relocate my catch can for the third time


    Big thanks to these guys:
    -12TRDTacoma for his SC Bible thread and help with belts and pulleys.
    -Athlaos for being a badass fellow Canadian. When plans fell through for us to change my clutch at his place it inspired me to tackle the job on my own.
    -BassAckwards for his excellent thread on how to change a clutch on our trucks.
    -JustDSM for all the personalized tuning and being great to deal with.
    -Roostfactor, BillDaCat8, Torspd and countless others in the SC thread or in PM's for tips and advice.

    The ported supercharger and intake runner part. Ported SC a conservative amount. The inlet at the rotors basically can't be ported at all due to thin wall thicknesses everywhere. The whole inlet from the throttle body to the rotors can be smoothed but can't grind too much because of thin wall thickness. I opened the outlet probably 15% at the rotors, inlet at the rotors 2% (guessing) and smoothed the inlet runners and ported and port matched the SC outlet into the runners. Smoothed the inlet from the throttle body too.

    Used a pencil type Pneumatic grinder but it was fairly awkward working at an angle in the front. You can see some scratches to the right side of the V where the grinder got away from me and cut through the tap. Steady, steady hand needed. I ended up using a small hand file a lot. Lots of sanding with paper to smooth things out. Went to about 180 grit on everything because from everything I read a little bit of roughness allows a layer of air for most of the airflow to slide over. Too smooth actually can make less flow. There is a 2-3mm lip underneath the left side of the v shaped outlet port that I mostly shaved away. The widest part at the bottom of the v can't be widened anymore due to the way the casting is.

    Very difficult to remove much material from anything due to the way the casting is. I could have opened up the outlet more but it was a pain in the ass and if the inlet can't be opened up then effeciency goes out the window. People have wrecked blowers where they blow less air so I went modest.

    Also cut away the parts of the two barbed hose fittings (brake booster and vsv) that stick out on the inside of the sc intake.

    Before pic - removed material that was sharpied.
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Also port matched the URD adaptor to the intake of the SC.

    Impossible to tell what gains have been made through this because I did this over a two month period along with changing the clutch, installing lightweight flywheel and NST pulleys, cam gears, 4runner intake tube with tundra throttle body, and URD equal length headers.

    The truck does accelerate noticeably quicker and smoother now but a lot of factors at work.

    Top port is untouched, middle port is roughly ground down. The side edges that look like a lip still are actually divots and if you ground those down you'd probably put a hole through to the outside.

    Took a bit of material to smooth the curve into the runners and port matched it together to the runners. Awkward spot also and resorted to a lot of hand sanding.

    My art deco themed 2.3 SC pulley....

    Painted my pulley orange with leftover high temp primer and paint and cured it with a heat gun.
    It spins so fast now that some of the paint flew off:beavisd:. Fuck

    Hurst/core short throw shifter with the T-handle. Absolutely love shit out of this thing and has consistently remained one of my favorite things with this truck. Throw in an HPTuner rev hang delete and a brake pedal spacer and things just get FUN

    Replaced this gauge face with a Black Cat Customs gauge face (bottom pic) that is black and cleaner looking. Since I'm in Canada I opted to get rid of MPH and stuck with only KPH
    Installed

    Aquamist HSF-3. Put the reservoir and pump In the back corner of the box. Easy to fill up and access but I need to make a steel guard to shield things. I usually strap stuff down anyways. Lots of wire, hose and wire loom and electrical tape needed to be run to make this happen.

    5 L tank that perfectly fits a standard 3.78 L washer fluid jug when the level is around the low level sensor. Currently two 320 cc nozzles installed.

    The controller is hidden beside the glovebox and behind the dash.




    When I did this install I attempted make the empty fuse holders usable. After unplugging the approximately 800 plugs and removing the fuse box I struggled for a couple hours trying to split this thing in half before it defeated me in mortal combat. :infantry:

    As a result I have too many fuse taps that will have to be reworked someday into something not hackish looking.

    I'm not sure how I never looked at this before now. I like all the details you've paid attention to. Great install of the Aquamist kit!

    Whoa, this is sick.

    Never have heard of using methanol injection but i don’t know nuthin about supercharging

    what it do?

    Thanks for the compliment!

    I'm actually using winter windshield washer fluid in the system lol. The -40 celcius stuff we use in the winter is an almost 50:50 mix of distilled water and methanol.

    The methanol content boosts the octane level to keep knock (pre-detonation) from happening. The water component cools the intake temperatures when the mist changes state to a gas. Different ratios of water:meth can be used but 50:50 is a good combination.

    In a nutshell it keeps everything running good and happy under boost.

    Battery relocation. Lots of wire loom and electrical tape. Ran the wires inside frame to back of cab and in through there to behind the rear passenger seat. Tied in to stock wiring from the alternator by chopping the battery clamp off and re-terminating everything to a remote jumper post station. First week after the job was done I jump started a damsel in distress at my son's daycare. She wasn't that pretty lol.

    Ran all the cables to where they needed to be and coiled the excess in the engine bay and the cab so when everything was ready to go I could move the battery and tie in all the wiring in one day. Being Canada it decided to snow and rain on me on the day I did this and I got sick.

    Afterwards I removed the stock intercooler reservior and mounted a bigger one where the battery used to be.

    Have a breaker at the hot from the battery with a fuse on the black to ground. The breaker is awesome - whenever the battery needs disconnected press a button. Additional fuse in engine bay near jumper terminals. Napa AGM Battery installed with a HKB mini blade alternator voltage booster.

    Mini fuse holder to relay to drive the Aquamist pump.



    A year later I finally decided to buy a fire extinguisher just in case:sandwich:

    That’s wicked. What would you say are the benefits of a larger tank for the intercooler?

    Everyone said the intercooler radiator for our chargers does a good job. The intercooler itself is tiny and heat soaks easy with smaller pulleys. I figured more coolant capacity with increased flow (installed a slightly faster pump too) would take a little more time before heat soak became an issue. I hated the little plastic reservoir that came with the charger and the aluminum one should act as a bit of a radiator by letting heat out of its increased surface area.

    I might be making shit up now idk:D

    This was done before meth addiction set in to cool things

    Me having two stock pumps in parallel results in 30% faster flow or so. How much does your new pump increase flow over stock?

    More fluid is always better I think. I've been lucky, never had leaks with the stock coolant reservoir, otherwise I would have looked into some kind of replacement. A bigger tank would also result in extra time before a leak drains the system, should a leak occur.

    I can't figure out what the stock flow rate is. Do you happen to know?

    He has an upgraded pump that he says runs 1.10 gal/m faster than stock but no mention of the stock value.

    Think I have the same pump that maybe came with a different plug (was plug and play for me). Part number is mostly the same.

    Mine: 03920-022-002 (flow rate 5.28 gal/m)

    One in the Bible thread: 03920-022-010
