    I have the one left installed and I cannot find any schematics or videos (all I find is information on the black one on the right.

    Additionally, everybody says you must remove the supercharger to change the plugs, but I just changed all six easily.

    And finally, most say Toyota never fitted a SC at the factory but I've found a few resources that say only some of the '98s were, the rest were done out of the dealerships.

    I am selling it and want to have the most accurate information.

    What is the model on the left anybody?

    Thank you!!!

    Yes I suppose, I just can't seem to find the schematics or any video for it anywhere (only the black ones). I was hoping someone could save me some time...

    the one on the left is a first generation supercharger.

    right is second generation.

    keep in mind, the term "generation" is not making reference to the 4runner itself.

    "1st generation TRD supercharger for 1998 4runner"

    Not to be rude but duh, its a first gen SC.

    Not my question, I am looking for the schematics for the SC as it is not the same as the second gen SC.

    The bolt pattern is different, the oil fill hole is located in a different place, the design of the body is obviously different (as I can change spark plugs without removing the SC).

    I would like to understand how it is constructed without taking it apart and finding out the hard way.

    Again, I am sure I could find it somewhere out there, but that is what these forums are all about, sharing stuff you already know and saving your 4-runner family time, money and heartache! IMHO

    Thanks!!!

    I had no intentions in being rude by my comment above. Just trying to help out.

    You asked what supercharger it was, so i answered the question:

    "What is the model on the left anybody?" towards the end of your 1st post.

    The other forum member even understood your post the same way I did, Its even in your title dude.

    FYI - Im not into dicks.

    That being said, go ahead and enjoy a big juicy meaty one for me.

    Anyways, after you're done eating/choking, however you enjoy them..

    Id write an email to Magnusson for guidance if you cant find schematics on that first gen.

    ;)

    This kind of behavior is not needed in this forum. Either be thankful for the help or leave.
    Thanks for contributing @ramonortiz55

    Maybe consider not wasting your time here and contact Magnuson directly for schematics instead of trash-talking helpful members.
