For the millionth time. Has anyone ever got close to installing this or even trying to in an 8th gen? UPDATED: NEvermind cuz I am the first to do it Ok so I figure I'd try to do a quick recap on what needs to be done to get the TRD supercharger to work in an 8th gen. First of all. It is not hard at all. You can follow the factory Supercharger installation guide. Here http://www.nine-o-fiverides.com/scinfo/TRD SC Install.pdf The few special differences are: 1). Supra radiator 1992. I used a non turbo but I think a turbo version will net you a thicker radiator. The non turbo version is already an upgrade. As the Stock 8th gen radiator core is only 5/8 thick and the NA supra radiator is 1 inch. 2). Radiator hose. I used a combination of a 9th gen corolla upper radiator hose and then used another hose I got from O'reily. The second hose I eyeballed to what angles I needed. I then joined the two hoses with a "Radiator hose repair kit" for about 3 bucks. 3). TRD Ecu wiring: The TRD ecu can get wired directly to the stock harness. Here's a quick wiring diagram of the TRD ECU. As far as wiring the 2 wire knock sensor. I simply tapped a hole next to the bellhousing side of the engine and installed a second knock sensor there. Not sure yet if this is actually working but will get to it eventually lol. And download the Corolla Engine Wiring Diagram pdf I attatched below. 4). Hood clearance: There's no way around this. If you want a supercharger on your 8th gen corolla. You need either a scoop or run a big hole in your hood with a supercharger sticking out lol. I used a Mustang GT hood scoop. The supercharger sticks out about 1 inch higher than the hood Plus another half inch play for engine bounce from shifting. NOTICE*** The 8th gen ECU with the TRD supercharger does ping a tiny bit under low RPM and heavy load. What I mean is if you are in a higher gear (low rpm) and try to accelerate, it will ping. Under normal acceleration it doesn't. For example if you start from 1-2-3-4-5. This is either due to too much timing advance from the 8th gen ecu or a lack of fuel under heavy load in higher gear. The pinging goes away completely when I used 100 octane. So my recommendation. If you want to use the 8th gen ecu and retain your normal operation of cooling fans etc. Get a meth/water injection kit. They are about $300 and are easy to use and boost your octane level to 110 octane and cools the supercharger by at least 50 degrees.

It's great quality and has mounting tabs ready. http://www.ebay.com/itm/00-04-MUSTANG-GT-HOOD-SCOOP-W-HONEYCOMB-GRILLE-/140864099370?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&fits=Model:Mustang&vxp=mtr&hash=item20cc27942a Added: Oct 13, 2012 7:14 AM This is LAME. They tested it on an engine with a TBI cleaner over throttle body setup. Those are never sealed and will leak any kind of pressure. Not saying I was expecting any amazing results. Just saying that they didn't test it the best way possible.
