Has Anyone done it? I know people have done the 1mz swap but has anyone added the trd supercharger?

It seems 1mzfe's are Preety cheap around here, anywhere between $500-800. Might be interesting/ different. And I've seen complete supercharger kits for under 2g. Or maybe a vortech or procharger.

Another question would be VVT-I vs non VVT-i.


Just thinking mainly.....discuss

That IM not entirely sure about. Trd developed a supercharger for it so they think it's boost capable. The Trd kit stock is only 4psi. If staying between 4-8psi with the right tuning should be fine.

I know nothing about it, but I say do it in case I decide to do the same.

They aren't anti-anything. It's just cheaper and easier with a 3S so nobody bothers.

If you're just doing it for grins, go for it. But you're going to have a heck of a time getting that torque to the ground.

I'm just thinking, I'll pry stick with my 3s plan. Saw a video with a SC solara and it was Preety neat. And I have always loved the supercharger noise and instant response.

I seem to remember reading someone's 1MZ build and they discovered that the TRD supercharger won't fit because it hits the firewall.

Sounds familiar to me too.

I think I figured out why you say it won't fit, the build I found is using a 3vzfe not 1mzfe. The blower isn't direct bolt on for the 3vz.

How does the Mr2 engine bay compare to the 5th gen celica? I've seen both and it seems there is more room in the celica.
