your car is a 2000, make sure you have your engine checked before wasting money on buying a supercharger + needed accessories. Your looking about 3500 for everything neeeded and installation and tuning fees. ANother member of this site took my advice and found out his engine was shot haha.

I heard since the TRD S/C was made for a different car ( Matrix/Vibe ) you might need a different throttle body. I'm also thinking of doing this, Has anyone really did this yet? I see so much opinions, but no one has actually said they done it. If someone actually did this please list the parts needed. This is what I got so far from reading some of the threads on this site.

TRD S/C Kit
Matrix/Vibe T/B???
After Market clutch ( stage I or II )
TRD Supercharger hood

Personal opinion: Why S/C not turbo, well I'm not going for more than 200-220 hp. I also like to have pull from the start instead of after spool. rarely get pass 6,000rpms any ( not a 1/4 mi junkie ).

get the c2 man, you won't regret it, you can get alot of power out of a stage one with a proper exhaust sytem set up and a boost controller. I wouldn't push further than 9 psi though on stock internals.
