    i am on the verge of buying a trd super charger

    and i was watching videos of some tacomas with the trd s/c and the acceleration does not look like a big difference from 0-60.

    can anyone with a s/c tell me if there is a substantial difference?

    I haven't run mine against a clock, before or after the SC. It's not my thing. But it is faster now. What's more noticeable is the torque. The truck seems to have the same amount of power from 2K rpm all the way up. No more needing a hard down-shift to accelerate up to freeway speeds.

    Your gonna get the most out of the S/C above 3.5k rpm

    I don't have any numbers for you, but there's a huge difference, especially if you go with the URD 7th and 2.2 pulley.

    Edit: Nevermind, didn't see the Generation of Tacoma's you're referring to.

    0-60 accel will be nice. But what makes the supercharger so sweet, is when your cruising at 50-60 and you step on it and it pushes you back in your seat.

    I myself have a few more add-ons then just the blower, but on my truck my 0-60 is real close to being in the 4 second range (if not).

    According to these online calcs.

    Im close to buying a S/C for my 2006 Tacoma 4.0 Auto. Does anyone know if my K&N CAI will cause problems for the SC if its installed? Also, what is the MPG like after installing the S/C
