    Man and I thought I was sold on a second gen super charger, after seeing this. Hummmmm.......

    How is the low end power with this turbo set up?

    Been pretty busy and haven't checked here in a bit.

    Low end power isn't going to be quite as much as the supercharger but it hits full boost at about 2500rpm. You could also go with a little smaller turbo and it would spool sooner.

    As for this vs the supercharger, its a lot more work than a SC but the gains are a lot more as well. If you want something you can throw on it a day and not have any surprises, i'd probably still go with the SC. If you want to have a crazy awesome fast 4Runner, do a turbo :D

    Is that 2500rpm with or without an ALS?

    Dylan, 4Runner looks sweet! Other than injectors did you do any other engine mods? Rods? What kind of boost are you running?

    Without. No anti-lag on this setup

    You may not want to take a ride in it then :laughing:

    Internals are stock with about 225k on it. Not planning on doing anything with that unless i blow up a couple of motors. Currently running about 9-10psi at Colorado elevation which translates to about 6-7 psi. This turbo has an internal wastegate but i'm not a huge fan of it so i may end up doing a external at some point.

    So if you look into that, you could make full boost at idle! :)

    I remember seeing this at that Tw Colorado meet at rock bottom. I remember you talking about this. Glad it is coming to fruition!
