Supercharger off, truck runs fine!! Supercharger rebuilding.
Just thought Id pass on a little info.
I use to have a 2005 xrunner, fully modded with a trd supercharger and all the goodies. Anyway I traded it on my rock warrior, but not before pulling everything off (including the TRD supercharge, even though it was reflashed). With the xrunner I left the 425 supercharger injectors and the upgraded fuel pump I added (tacomas dont get a pump upgrade like the tundras). Truck ran fine after pulling everything. THere have been 1 or 2 others that have pulled the TRD supercharger even with the reflash.
I purchased a used 5.7 supercharger to install on my new tundra. It continued to get louder and louder. I have researched to find someone to rebuild it.
From my research comes down to 3 companies:
Stiegemeier Porting Services, LLC - Supercharger Rebuild and Repair
Bob is the owner and sounds like a nice guy.. 795.00 for rebuild, port, balanced, and blue printed.
PSE Superchargers - Your source for remanufactured original equipment superchargers
THis company comes highly recommended from a Vendor here. Slighly more for rebuild.. Havent talked a lot with them
Manufacturer of Supercharger kits, remanufactured superchargers and supplier of supercharger oil.
These guys build the eaton superchargers from TRD from what I understand. $300.00 for a nose rebuild or little under a grand for a full rebuild including "new" rotor packs. "The complete rebuild will be like it just left for the first time inside and out." Dave is the POC for a RGA number if you ship to them.
Anyway I have pulled the supercharger off and reinstalled the stock intake (BOOO). WOW I Knew my supercharger was loud, but WOW the truck is quite now! That being said The truck runs FINE with the supercharger flash but no supercharger.. Only thing it trans doesnt like it. Its shifting a little funny, mainly cause it doesnt have the power like when S/C was installed. If you have to remove your Supercharger to get it rebuilt or you want some extra cash when you sell your truck heads up on the following..
*you have to reinstall your stock water neck
*leave upgraded supercharger and fuel pump installed, DO NOT INSTALL STOCK INJECTORS BACK IN IT..
* you will need to reinstall the stock (TOP) of the air box
*Remove the top ID pulley for super charger belt, but you can leave the bracket it attaches to..
I was in a hurry to pull it off.. As I reinstall the supercharger back on, Ill edit this thread for a how to and insert pics.. If you have any questions let me know, Id be glad to help you out... Its ok to run your truck with reflash but with out supercharger..
