I installed my charger yesterday and the power is nice I must add however I seem to get a pull through all gears up to 3rd then in 4th gear it pretty much seems like my stock truck. From all the posts I have read everyone chimes in about how nice it is to have added highway passing power...WEll I dont seem to have that I seem to have it at lower speeds...Do you thinkI just have to let the ECU adjust more or could it be a pinched vacuum line etc? I have gone over the lines and it appears that nothing is pinched or misproperly placed. Thanks

As of right now nothing...Need more mulah to come in. Could this be the problem though? I thoguht that the fuel delivery issue had to do more of RPM rather than gearing and car speed? I will definetly be purchasing a URD kit though in the not to distant future. As of right now I just did the free FMU mod. However it doesnt seem to ping at all but Im sure that problem will eventually arise. I want to get the fuel kit anyways as the engine has about 82000 miles on it.

i know it does...but the way i see it, if i destroy the engine while it's still under warranty, i can get a new engine and supercharger and then get the fuel mods from the start...i've already got almost 30k SC'd miles, so i figure this engine is ###### whether i get the mods or not

My truck sounds similar. It pulls really good in 1st-3rd then when I get to 4th and 5th, it doesn't have that same awesome pull. It still feels way better than stock tho. I chaulk it up to the restrictive airbox, MAF and TB.

Yeah but you know the engine is gona die on you the day you run of warranty ;)

I can help you with the URD kit when you get it.

Is there anyone in MA that has done a URD kit install? seems pretty lengthy and I would probably need some help...Those west coasters are always so generous

Hi
do you have a scan tool?
it may be pulling timing my truck had a big issue with this and the fuel mods helped a lot. also do think that toyota will just throw a new motor in it and you should just do the fuel mods now.

My truck was like that prior to fuel mods and better FTC tuning. (And Supra MAF)
