So for some time now there has been this dream, or even a fantasy, of someday having the Honey Badger supercharged. I never thought it would actually happen. Especially not with a 7th injector kit. Well, it finally happened. I still can't quite believe it. First of all I have to give a HUGE thank you to Justin. Without him none of this could have been possible.
I'll post up some pictures and build details.
Step one: Replace the fuel pump. Utilizing an under drive pulley and a 7th injector system requires more fuel volume than the stock pump can handle. So we installed a Walbro 190 LPH pump. In this generation Tacoma, the tank must be dropped in order to switch the pumps. This wasn't too terribly difficult once we figure this fact out. Drop the skid plate, unbolt the tank, unbolt the filler hose, and drop it down slowly on a floor jack.

Step two: Open the hood.

Step three: Disconnect the air intake and remove the throttle body and upper half of the stock air intake manifold. Then remove the lower half of the manifold. The gasket here gets replaced.

Step four: Now in my case I needed new valve cover gaskets and a complete valve job. So we took the valve covers off, cleaned them, replaced the gaskets and adjusted all 24 valves. This was the most time consuming part of the whole project. This added about 3 hours or so. If it wasn't for this, we could have just started to install the Supercharger at this point.

Step five: Start the Supercharger install. There are several brackets that need to be installed for the belt tensioner and dip stick relocation. The intake manifold gasket also gets replaced now. The front engine cover needs to also be trimmed in order to make room for the nose cone.

A custom gasket must be made for the throttle body and Supercharger connection.

The "T" is installed in the fuel line for the 7th injector kit.

Now we have to put the supercharger on.

The throttle body gets reinstalled. Then the Air intake and filter. Then the supercharger drive belt.

We then had to route all the wires and air line for the 7th injector into the cab and mount the URD module in the Passenger kick panel. Then we had to wire it into the onboard ECU. This was also a time consuming process. Made all the more unpleasant by the position I had to sit in and the cramped spaces we had to work in.

All in all we wrenched continuously for 16 hours through Saturday night into Sunday morning. We finished up and did a test drive at about 2:40 AM
Needless to say the next morning we both felt like crap. LOL However, everything seems to be running properly. I've driven up 285 twice now and the power difference is very noticeable and satisfying. Completely worth every penny and hour it took to make this happen.
I'm still getting used to all the new sounds and noises.
I'm very excited to finally have this mod installed and am looking forward to having this power available on future adventures.
I definitely owe Justin a beer.

Now go get that engine bay steam cleaned and detailed so it's worthy of that bling supercharger!

Negative. This whole set up came as a complete set transplanted off of another 5VZ. I don't have any of the old spare parts.

Did you run w/out the 7th? Curious how much of a difference you noticed. I think mine has the wrong tune, despite being assured it is correct, as I feel almost no difference with or without. Still have to get the wide band O2 sensor in, but overall been very dissatisfied with the 7th injector kit.

The 7th injector comes tuned for sea level. With tuning I was able to reduce my 0-60 time by 1 second. I know of a decent wide band set up for 130 bucks on ebay. that's what I use I an give u a link if u want. As soon as I get more time, I am ditching the supercharger for a cxracing turbo kit. I will utilize the 7th injector for the turbo. Just spinning the the supercharger steals like 50hp.
