If I were looking at two trucks that were the same and one had a SC and one was stock and the price was the same I would take the SC. However I am guessing that the person your buying the truck from is charging more because it has the SC. If thats the case I would buy another truck and put the SC on. If you buy the kit on here and have the dealer install it you can get the SC installed for about 2100-2300 or so.stevet47 said:I am looking to buy a used tacoma, and I came across one that has the dealer installed TRD supercharger. The truck has 32,000miles on it. I know they have lean problems, so my question is..Has the damage already been done? I'd love the extra power, but I'd rather have a motor that I dont have to worry about. Also, about how much does it cost to do the fuel upgrades to get it running right? And how about transmission longevity...I've heard there have been some issues with the autos with superchargers, but how about the 5spds, this truck is a 5spd.
EDIT: A supercharged truck requires premium fuel, right?
Another note. If the truck is less than three years old you could always buy the extended warranty and that will cover the SC. There is a guy over ad TS that sells them prety close to cost. It was around 650 or so for a 02 DCab if you wanted the PowerTrain warranty for 7 years 100K. Then all you have to do is drive it and not worry about it.
