I have been looking for the right FJ40 and am in the market for one. Let me know if you decide to sell.

I thought you needed a higher compression engine to handle the supercharger or turbocharger? At least for the most part? I probably shouldn't say anything since I have no clue, but a red flag went up in my mind when I heard that.

Just the opposite, Matt. Forcing A/F mix into a low compression cylinder is what you want.
