    I had an idea.
    I know the TRD superchrger isn't exactly perfect for us.
    I have 1zzfe with VVT-i, so what's the issue?
    Hood clearance.
    I don't want to be all rice like and have a cowl, so wouldn't hood risers work?
    I figured a supercharger and standalone ecu w/ a manual tranny would be way more simple than a 2zz/c60 swap.
    Thoughts?

    Hood risers won't work. Either run a bulge like a M3/LFA hood style or you're shit out of luck

    Well, it wouldn't really be rice since you'd have a supercharger underneath...

    a cowl wouldn't be "rice" since its a functional cowl that you need to have clearance for a supercharger to fit...

    Irvin and Milky are the guys to talk to about supercharging an 8th gen.

    Hood risers lift the rear of the hood, the supercharger would sit up front.

    Fucking boss dude.

    What's gonna go over the gaping hole?

    Could you kindly provide a top-down picture of your cutout, that I might be able to use as a template in the future?

    Thanks!

    You mean with measurements and stuff? The width of the hole had to be about 12" minimum but since I wanted to center it I made it about 17" and the length from front bumper to winshield was, I believe, 7". Not sure on exact measurements but with a measuring tape and the hood you want to cut installed it's not that hard. Helps to have a friend, but not 100% necessary. Ryan helped me out though
