Ok with all this talk of the S/C on here I was wondering how much a basic set-up would cost. To run the "stock" psi setting what do I need as well. I was saving for a S/C for my last car when I said F'it and bought my truck so I understand how they work I just need to know more about how everything it setup on the Tacoma. I have a 97 V6 Auto 4x4 with 61K on it.


Ok after looking on ebay and some other sites it seems as if I can just bolt the S/C on and go, seems sorta not right. Do I need to have it tuned or is there a new computer program that I need or does te computer "re learn" after certain amount of miles?

You could just bolt on, but you'll pay the price sooner or later.

New S/C's from reputable dealers go on sale here quite often. S/C prices are usually btwn $1800-$1900 on sale. For engine durability and longevity you'll need either the TRD 7th Injector kit, or the URD kit. URD is prefered around here because it's considered more reliable, and the owner (Gadjet) is a frequent visitor to the board helping people with install and troubleshooting. Either kit runs around a $1000.
To answer your question, you'll start at $3000 and go from there for tuning, wideband sensor, and any other extras you want to add.

just hurry up and get one, you can just bolt it on and go, throw in some premium fuel, grab a hot chick and GO, if you find an extra $900 under the couch cushons get the urd kit, if you look on ebay ask them to tell you the date stamped on the bottom of the charger, if its still fairly new and cheap snag it

I paid $2,400 installed by Toyota dealership. S/C is not an easy job. I would acquire the instructions beforehand, which is what I did. I cannot advise on your year and mileage but my computer did "relearn" to respond to S/C, but you need to break it in by "using" the S/C. If you consider yourself a mechanic you can save yourself a lot of labor money. Had 7th inj. kit installed by dealer a few days ago and if truck had a prop and wings it would think it was an airplane. Really pulls, especially after 70 when just S/C begins to mellow. Have TRD headers, cat-back and air filter, Summit traction plus helper spring and Monomax gas shocks. You probably know more than I but a set of gears will be one of your best bets to turn those big tires. Seems quite a few people on this site have had trouble with pinging with S/C but I have not, maybe 3 or 4 times in 18 months and probably due to the gasoline. Now I use 93 Sunoco in Fl and 93 Shell and Texaco in NY. It is my opinion that a good set of headers may make the difference. If the air is rammed in you want it to get rammmed out. I went with 7th injector because of warranty and excellent relationship with my Toyota dealer. But you should make contact with Gadget and get info on his URD kit. Mostly my Pre-Runner is a street machine but do hunt and fish and know my limits, although I have bottomed out many a 4x4 Ramcharger and Bronco in my job, now retired. Good luck, I have nothing but praise for my S/C and 7th.

It all depends on your experence and the tools you own. I could tune my GTO's but that was it. I read over the S/C instructiions but it was too far advanced for my knowledge, same with 7th and the headers. Many, like yourself on this site can do just about anything and 'Good on ya for having that expertise. This site is a dump truck full of information and sure glad I found it.
