A thread entitled "2rz turbo" just poped up with some turbo parts for sale. looks like a different type setup but it maybe a good start. By the way, anything you ever wanted to know about turboing an RZ is on this website. just have to do a little searching.:waytogo:

Re: sc or turbo?

You're have to find some way to smog it though when it comes time since you live in Cali. Only way to do it is find a "friend" who will pass it or take all that crap off and smog it stock. I'm more than likely gonna s/c mine with a smaller pully, water/alchy injection and cams and some other goodies just to avoid the major PIA of taking all the stuff off every year for smog. Somebody had a pretty quick s/c 2rz on here and was running 13's on the quarter mile with some internals and the s/c. Its just gonna cost you way more to make it fast with the s/c, but to me it beats the hassle of worrying about taking the thing apart every year. Especially since its my only vehicle.

Re: sc or turbo?

Yeah I went through this whole ordeal as well. Turbo has a much greater efficiency but is not legal for us smog schmoes in California. I took the supercharger route for the 3.4L. The supercharger is bolt on and go out the box, there is some more tuning involved with turbo, but the benefits are greater. Also depends on what sorta driving you plan on doing, supercharger is power right off the line, no spooling. BUT, runs out of efficiency later in the RPM range where the turbo would just be gettin started. Here is a thread that ended up with S/C vs. Turbo, check it out, its recent too.

Re: sc or turbo?

I heard of people making claims of 13 sec times with a 4 cyl and s/c but I doubt it... it takes roughly 230rwhp to make a taco flyinto the 13's that means that a fully tuned, with the smallest pulley and all of the bolts ons- plus CAMs, should help you get there... unfortuantely, that doesn't happen in real life...

and after all that, you've got a 20,000 dollar strippie truck thats just "ok fast"
not "WAS THAT A TACOMA???" fast. the last 04 GTO i raced said that. :lol:

Re: sc or turbo?

well actually that setup should run you the same as a turbo setup... but if you want the head built to be more efficient- that's another story...
