    The original numbers are 270 hp and 278 ft-lb torque, but of course performance is what you see when you drive at normal speeds, and not what the dyno reads out

    That’s to the crank. Not wheel.

    Congrats! I've had mine since January. It was already installed by the dealer when I bought it. Had trouble findin' your intercooler reservoir but finally spotted it. LOL! On another forum two guys have had leaks at the hose connections. I don't. But it might be a good idea to check.

    Also, did you get your tuner? I had a bit of problem getting mine, 'til I had the service manager talk to Tim at Magnuson.

    About the blower whine ... once it gets wound up a bit, kinda sounds like its electric. No more of that pukin' it's guts out sound. KOOL! Mileage is 'bout the same as my '13, not that that was what I was after. LOL!

    Congratulations. The AFR kind of spooks me. This is with the tune that Magnuson provided you after you sent your factory map? I did mine in March 2019, but never did a dyno session, so I'm curious

    Actually, after looking closer, it's only lean at the lower rpm then drops to a richer mixture at higher rpm\boost?

    Maybe I missed it but why the Magnuson instead of the TRD? Do you have any trouble with the low-end, new power and wet roads as this is your hauler?

    The TRD branded superchargers were discontinued several years ago.

    Correct. The current Magnuson superchargers are identical to the TRD ones without the logo.

    This looks like a fantastic mod and I’m seriously considering. Has anyone considered the implications for air/fuel mixture? Other SC mods for other makes (e.g., Dinan Superchargers for BMW) include larger injectors. Also, I understand that the Tacomas have a variable speed fuel pump, which 4Runners do not? The SC is by definition leaning out the mixture, which if not adjusted for can eventually lead to failure of the head/valves, etc. i would think.

    Welcome to the forum.
    There are plenty of electronics out there to get it to run properly. I bet he talks about it in the build list...

    My local Toyota dealer is currently running a special for the Magnusson SC installed for free with purchase of $5,999. Seriously considering it for the extra power to tow an offroad trailer:transformer:
