    As the title says, does anyone know why TRD doesn't make a super charger for the second gen 2.7? I know They had one for the 1st gen 2.7.

    The gain probably wasn't worth the cost for buyers so sales went down.

    it doesnt make much sense to put a s/c on a four banger in my opinion i would put a turbo instead

    TW member newengland has installed the alpine kit. There's a thread on it in the 4 banger section. It sounded like they hadn't sold too many of them b/c he had some issues I think.
