You're willing to pay $6K for a supercharger but not for premium fuel to power it? Seems a bit contradictory to me. But if you live in CA (where fuel is like over $5 gal, I guess I wouldn't blame you.

How many miles are you driving?

Using very basic/general assumptions, I suspect its going to be around $235 for every 10K miles. Which means if this is really going to cost you $1500 per year, with this math, you are driving around 60K miles per year.

Hahaha, I also did the math before I saw your comment. I live in Los Angeles and 91 is $0.20 more per gallon than the cheap stuff. He'd have to drive 120,000 miles a year at 17mpg to spend an extra $1500...

With that said, is it worth it? Most likely. I'm very interested in getting one myself. My Toyota dealer already told me they won't install it but I'm on the hunt to retain that warranty.

Disclaimer: I don't have experience with this particular vehicle but I do with boosting another. I tripled the wheel power and it was very, very involved. I'm not worried about slapping this on the 4 Runner at all.
So magnuson offers a free 3 year 36 mile warranty on the supercharger and motor!!! Extended warranty available for $500

Do you mind sharing what it cost for installation?

The stealer added 'bout $3800 for the install. It was on the truck, on the showroom floor, but I was able to negotiate that down. I'd say 2 grand might be typical. They did do a stellar job, though. Looks factory ... no runs, no drips, no errors. Not cheap, but I'm happy and hopin' this is my last vehicle. OOPS! That's what I said 'bout my '15 Mustang GT.

The link you provided didn't come through for me, I'm very curious about the cons of using an aftermarket ATF. I currently flush my trans with BG fluid. BG basically pays out a determined amount towards the repair of any engine component associated with their flushes, in this case $4000 for my 4runner trans if it ever goes out, since I started the fluid replacement at or before 50,000 mi.

Lifetime BG Protection Plan(R) Certificate | BG Products, Inc.

I've submitted several claims for various covered parts for my Chevy work van and have always been reimbursed. My Honda Ridgeline's trans started going out recently at 63,000 mi., not uncommon for those Honda V6 trans, and I should get either $2-$4K towards a new one installed.

But if there was no warranty attached, I would definitely be using Toyota ATF, still just curious as to why it's much better for these engines.

Hey man, do whatever you want. I just think your logic is out of whack. Someone who is willing to spend a whole lot of money over upgrades and claims is willing to pay at least $6K for a supercharger (if you are installing yourself, obviously doesn't factor in labor) but is concerned over the premium fuel cost just sounds bogus to me.

But like I said, whatever floats your boat.

I must have screwed up the link. Long story short - use Toyota ATF in most cases and don't change it unless you have a good reason to do so.

for anyone curious about how the install works with shops, plenty of performance shops will install this and it roughly takes 10 hours.

You're right, it doesn't concern me, but you posted to a public board and you are shocked when someone responds that your logic doesn't make sense?

If you didn't want someone to respond to your personal opinion, maybe don't make it public?

The problem with opinions these days is that people trying to tell what you need and what you don't need as well as how useless your mods are. I'd say pay no attention to such trolls because they are mostly jealous of what you have or done and they don't.

LOL, I'm the troll?

This guy comes onto to this thread where a vendor is selling a product, post his opinion that provides zero help to other customers with any facts, he gets called out and responds angrily that someone pointed out a flaw in his thinking. And I'm the troll?

Maybe don't respond if you don't have anything important to share on someone else's thread?

So my understanding is that the free 3 year 36k mile warranty is actually 3/36k from when the vehicle was newly purchased.
