You have no idea what you're talking about. Stay in school.Well You Have A O1 Tundra.. The Sts Turbo Is A Good Choice But Your Better Off Going With A Supercharger. Less Issues And If Your Tundra Has High Miles A Turbo Or Supercharger Will Most Likely Do More Damage Then Good. If Your Looking For More Power. Do Exhaust, Intake, Headers, Bigger Ing. Wires And A Bottle Of Nos And A Bigger Fuel Pump And Gears Too. Less Money And Maybe More Horse Power Too..
oh yea, high mileage engines love nitrous to raise the compression and blow the rings right off the pistons....If Your Tundra Has High Miles A Turbo Or Supercharger Will Most Likely Do More Damage Then Good. If Your Looking For More Power...A Bottle Of Nos And A Bigger Fuel Pump...
I have one. Installed it in 2004 on a 2003 4.7L. It's a Precision/Garret GT35 .68 hot, .60 cold with electronic boost controller, hi pressure fuel pump, blow-off valve, Vortech fuel regulator, fuel timing calibrator, etc.Does anyone have a STS Turbo system on there Tundra? I have a 2001 Tundra 2wd. I'm looking into one.

Please do enlighten me on how a roots type TRD supercharger, or even a centrifugal supercharger require just as much, or more maintenance than a turbo.
The nose drives do wear out, I'll give ya that, but they last quite a long time. My experience comes from a TRD S/C on a 3.4 V6 which was based on the Eaton M62 roots type. The nose drive and all components were holding just fine for the 55,000 miles that I put on it. I never even had to change the belt the entire time. I also ran that truck HARD. I used URD's Speed Unlimiter and was constantly running boost racing about everyone I could. I swear that truck just kept on taking it like it enjoyed the abuse.Its all about tuning...It takes time to get it perfect on forced induction no matter the component. Bearings can go in the S/C especially a roots like the TRD unit because the nose cone is not supported. This puts stress on the unit. Believe me changing a pulley on a supercharger is a helluva lot harder than turning up a boost controller. Neither unit will need general maintenance although I on the other hand have had my charger completely rebuilt after I bought it just because I never trust used components. It is basically a new unit except for the housing. Hence the maintenance there with rotors and the like (albeit the guy that had it before me was an idiot). The gears inside the nose cone are also prevalent to wear after time. Im just wondering what experience you have had that makes you think turbos are so maintenance prone and s/cs arent?
