I have a 92 hilux x-tra cab and was wondering if it is possible to fit some
kind of supercharger to it without doing too much internal work. I have already got a bigger cam, extractors, high flow cat and exhaust as I fully rebuilt the engine about 1500kms ago. How much would I be looking at for a supercharger, pulleys etc. Would anyone know of any australian sites or dealers for this kind of info?

YellowTerra do a SC.. so do a few others.

But Instead of wasting more money on that one, why not go a V6 Conversion or V8?

I considered an sr20det turbo motor conversion as I have seen one done.
The only reason I decided to stay with the 22R was simply money and for the meantime, I didn't want all the hassles of compliancing. Where I live these types of things are not exactly common practice.

Yep you could fit a supercharger to it. Most likely a centrafugal type, rather then a screw type.

They are expensive though. For my Pajero $6500. Fitting a turbo would be cheaper.

What you can get though, providing you are fairly handy with a spanner, is but cheap imported ones and build your own. The centrafugal ones are real easy to fit.

fitted one to my 92 gq diesal cost $5500 fitted, people say they are expensive, but to get the eqivialant from a turbo you have to intercool it which brings up to the price of a S/C.Also S/C are serviable and dont have to be idled down. With what you have on your donk now and a S/C the thing will get up and fly, and leave a turbo for dead. Col

Dan, i got mine fitted at on track 4 wheel drive in brisbane. 4wd monthly has an artical about S/C and turbos they give the pros and cons. Some of the figures are for a hi lux 2.4 diesal stock 54kw, turtbo 76kw, S/C 90kw, sorry they dont have figures for the petrol. The s/c for my patrol is the same unit as the one fitted to the v6 commodore and all parts are available over the counter. I have a list of mechanics aussy wide that fit s/c, so let me know where you are and well see if i can help. Col

Colin, I live in Gladstone QLD. As I have mentioned there is a very limited amount of performance dealers around here that stock or even order in superchargers etc for my type of car but I do travel to Brisbane a lot so any dealers around that area are definitely accessible for me. Thanks for the help.

Why not call up some 4wd places and get a few prices on things.

Or jump online and sus things out that way..

My TJM dealer in melbourne advertises Yellow Terra SC'ers.. So normal 4b places should be able to help with purchase and at least a price....

Good luck with it!

Dan, another thing to look at is insurance was with suncorp, but i went over my points with a 2 inch lift and the S/C, so shopped around and found AAMI covered me for everything, as long as you are honest with them. Col
