Which one would you rather have and why? Pros & Cons having one another,which is more reliable?
stock is most reliable.......lol
Id have to say trd because you can get it with a warranty.
Ill let others respond this is a loaded question haha.
more reliable, id like to stick with trd, but more power would have to be turbo, but thats just with i know! im sure more knowledgable guys will chime in
Warrenty as in if it locks up or takes a sh*t on me lol?
If it was between a sts turbo and a trd supercharger, I'd go for the trd. But if its between a custom turbo kit made with quality parts and a trd supercharger, I'd go turbo all day everyday. You should also consider the URD kit too. I would pick a URD supercharger over a TRD one as well.
I would with out a doudt pick urd any day,but funds arent gonna b there this year for 5700 when i could get a trd s/c for 3800 with a fit kit, xrollers turbo kit,or a simular sts setup
TRD. Why buy someone else's problem? U know he had to piece together that system so u don't know if ur getting "quality" parts/fitment and so on. I've bought used items before and I'll never do it again because of how disappointed I was of how the parts looked and were taken care of.
Buy new or have someone reputable buil u a custom turbo kit
I agree. but is this really a question??? lol TURBO MAN!!!!!...believe me you wont regret it...
Friends don't let friends get an STS system. Anything but that.
On a budget I'd go TRD all day long. The only way I'd go turbo is a fabbed front mount setup.
Allright trd getten alotta love,wheres my turbo guys?
Depends on how much u wanna drop on a turbo and supporting mods but sc would be nice
haha what gadget said! i heard alot of bad things with the sts kit! depends what ur trying to do! sc r more simple! more of bolt on then figuring piping size n cooling issues n what not with turbo set ups
I got love for turbos.
if you're going to turbo then don't half ass it with a STS mid mount, get the custom fabbed front mount but as you said you are working with a budget so all day i would say get the TRD blower.
Does any know the gains from a 7 injector,urd pulley? If i did go the trd route id want: 7 injector,urd pulley,steiger port n polish,volant scoop mod,(maybe G will have that bigger throttle body out lol :top & a 35 wet shot
So....do your self a favor, read Torspd build thread. That should be your first step in what to and not to do in terms of a Turbo build.
You can make serious power with a proper turbo build. Remember, you will need a custom tune and tuning device to run a Turbo set up safely. The x1/uconn can be calibrated to run a Turbo, but it has the turbo get has to be built a certain way, as to not cause strange readings on the AFR sensors, as the x-1 and ucon use them for tuning. Torspd can elaborate more on that.
Now, TRD, things a bit simpler, yet more complicated at the same time....out the door, you can Just get a TRD s/c with the reflash and make some decent power. Your looking at about 300whp with fuel pump, Exhaust and intake. Expect to pick up 20 or so rwhp with a pulley. Now, proper tunning and more boost. You can easily push it over 350whp. DeathShadow made over 380 with a stock y-pipe and modified tune. Nitrous with a proper tune, your easily knocking out URD power levels and with a torque curve that will yield no traction in the first 3 gears...:rockon:...but the stock motor can only take so much.
Best reply so far,thanks alot man!!! :top:
with all those extras added in you might as well get the urd blower right off the bat! you can spend thousands on the trd blower and never be satisfied with the gains
If i can get alotta side work by the time i get my tax returns itll be on the top of the list
