Supercharged this thing rocks!

2002 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
I traded a 2002 Xterra which was junk for this 2002 4Runner. I test drove the then new 2003 4Runner but felt it too big and heavy. I've not had a single problem with this 4Runner, it's built tight, drives great, is quiet, roomy, and wonderful on road trips. I decided it needed more power so I installed a TRD supercharger and some other goodies which really woke it up. I've dyno tested this 4Runner at 240RWHP. That's Mustang GT territory and the 4Runner weighs nearly the same. I'm thrilled Toyota offers these types of upgrade options. It's an entirely new animal.
Leather sport seats; push button 4WD; sporty appearance; build quality
It needed more power from the factory, but I solved that with the TRD supercharger. Illuminated cup holders would be nice, and a trac/vsc disable switch to turn the systems off. I fixed all of these myself as well, but they should have been included from Toyota.
