    Hello Everybody,

    I just bought a used TRD supercharger off of a 2000 3.4 liter 4Runner with 89,000 miles on it. The guy I bought it off of wrecked the 4Runner and says the SC works great, but what should I consider doing to the SC before putting it on my Tacoma??? The pulley spins freely and has no play in the bearing, but better to replace whatever I need to now while it is off. Thanks for the help, Laramy

    Don't know if it matters, but I am putting it on a 2001 Tacoma TRD Double Cab

    The first thing to do is to determine which version of the 5VZ TRD supercharger you have, and to inventory how much of the overall kit was included in your purchase.

    The tricky part in transplanting used superchargers usually ends up being the installation parts, not the supercharger itself.

    I think it is the 2nd generation 5VZ Supercharger, because it is the slimmer black one. I grabbed the tension pulley and the belt what else will I need? I can still get a hold of the guy to get other parts. Do I need to do ECU/ECM work (Flashed or Chipped) for the stock pulley? Thanks for your help, Laramy

    I'd suggest checking this online-accessible edition of the supercharger installation manual over at CustomTacos:

    http://www.customtacos.com/tech/index.php?article=45

    ... to see what components were included with the kit. The main S/C unit is the easy part ... The additional little pieces (e.g., brackets for throttle connections, etc.) are the ones that can drive S/C buyers crazy.

    There's even a copy of the template for cutting your belt cover at:

    http://www.customtacos.com/forum/showthread.php?t=140202

    No - in general, you don't do any ECM mods. However ... Depending on how you use the S/C, you will likely find you'll need to consider adding other components to deal with the 'lean-out' issues the 5VZ supercharger is notorious for.
