It also is frustrating to see M62 superchargers for other makes and models go for $250 or less and a TRD M62 go for 15x the price.

Kinda crazy isnít it. It almost just makes regearing a more viable option really when you get down to the cost of it and for no more power than the current supercharger adds.

Worst part is, the blower isnít really big enough anyway, and itís not intercooled. Iím sure Toyota had their reasons when they engineered it, but it seems to me like overall it was a huge miss.

On the other hand, I got this rig about 7 yrs ago and have driven it over 80,000 miles. Itís the same muffler it came with and I donít know how old it was then. I also canít tell what kind it is. It just looks like a rust-colored oval - no logo or anything as far as I can tell.

If I swap it, Iím inclined to go OEM because Iíd like it quiet like now, but Iím also open to suggestions because the OEM at Camelback is nearly $500.

Thanks as always for help & advise -


Also, Iím in northern CA on the coast. No snow unless I seek it out, and no salted roads. The vehicle came from Sacramento.

As long as itís not rattling, or rusted through and making lots of noise, just run it. If thereís any chance that itís plugged, the converters would be plugged also with the vehicle running horrendously.

Unless itís broken and noisy or your looking for a different sound, leave it.
