For cryin' out loud....by the time you're done with jazzin' up your truck,
you could find a nice used 911 Carerra and scare the crap out of every cop
in your county, without any mods at all except for maybe a coat of wax.

Can 911 go off road?

No..

The supercharger will be around $3k another 600 for the install - and its
guaranteed by Toyota

OK...I spoke too soon. But, if you're off-road, wouldn't you be going slower
and more carefully, to avoid suspension damage? Why would you want a
supercharger?

Not a car guy, eh?

It seems silly to someone who's not into customizing cars.

I understand the increase in power, but I drive a Tacoma with 6 cylinder
engine and if my feel for the truck is accurate, it's the gear ratios that
would need changing before adding horsepower. The "setup" is aimed at torque
more than speed & acceleration. Put the same engine in a sedan with a
different gear ratio and it would blow the doors off my truck, at least in
terms of acceleration.

Ohh...OK. I'm not trying to tear apart a pastime like that. Just asking
questions. Do these races require the extra ground clearance of a truck, or
could you raise a lot of hell with a seriously built sedan, too?

They're not 'real' races, just a bunch of boyz with tricked up 4x4s and high
clearance truck bouncing along/over the old haulage roads. I doubt that a
sedan would last more than a mile of so. Too many dips, rocks, etc.

No, I'm not one, but I see them when I'm out crawling high trails and mine
roads. <G> I like my Tacoma DC too much to bash it.
