the injectors were up-sized to handle the additional fuel requirements, so pinging in not an issue as far as I know. Remember, you need to use premium...

I have been s/c'ed for the past 25,000 miles on my 2001. What do you want to know?
#5 of 9 Tacoma w/Supercharger
Jul 09, 2003 (7:01 am)
I have a buddy that is a Toyota Dealer Mechanic. I too was interested in adding a Supercharger to my Tacoma. He stated that the unit was prety good, however, Toyota has been receinving a lot of comlaints with engine pinging as a result of the Supercharger. My friend suggested waiting a year or so until they work out the bugs.

2001+ models have larger injectors which fixes ping problems. For 2000- models, you can buy Supra injectors that'll fix it for you.

Are those larger injectors on the 4 cylinder engines as well as the 6 cylinder?

Check with guys at www.tacomaterritory.com, we got a lot of people with blowers. I think it's teh TRD charger that has a problem with ping, they only make V6 ones. I4 charger is made by Alpine, and I haven't heard anything, but again, if it's I4 you're interested in, check with TTORA (site above). Heck, you'll find enough useful info for a V6 one too.
