Default 4.5L Supercharger??

Toyota lists it on their web page again. I don't understand...

Romer....

What does your inside source say? I'm seriously considering the "Romer Plan" to get a supercharger when/if they ever become available again. The only thing I miss about my Durango is the power...I want, no NEED, mo' powa'

No info here. Why not ask Bill, he knows more about this stuff than Dan would.

There was a thread on Mud about another company getting ready to sell these after buying the design from TRD. Don't remember the details.

they are listed in a few places.

I want one too.

Last time I contacted TLC regarding one, they said probably late November after the SEMA show. That was 10/2007. I have not followed up with them since. TRD never emailed me back in December.

The Romer Plan? Would that be selling your 40 to fund a Supercharger upgrade?

Don't do it!

This is what TLC told me. Redesigning the pulley so that you can not change the diameter and "adjust" your boost.
