Save $2500-$3500usd and have someone more experianced build a custom turbocharger. I'm pretty sure Sean McElligott is wanting to put a turbo on an early 1mz-fe if someone will drop it off at his house for a while.

Or pay about $3500-$4000usd to have the 97-01 TRD supercharger machined to fit the 94 intake.

Either way, any descent size turbo will kill the TRD charger in not just performance, but in powerband, and economy.

No offince, but you don't know anything, and shouldn't be doing this by yourself unless you plan on doing un-told hours doing research.

:rolleyes: If you did any research you would ask us where do you get supplies, not how to install one.

Buy Maximum Boost by Corcky Bell on ebay. It's $5. When you're done, resell it for $5.

It's great you say you have a vette with a s/c 350.

Saying that "nos doesn't count" is... I can't say that on this forum. How you add power has no bearing on anything. The simple fact that you have power is all that counts.

For the record, last time I checked... You shoot Nitrous Oxide into the engine. That would be n2o. I'm sorry.... NOS & NAWZ only exist in Fast and Furious where you can upshift twelve times in a row, and still only being going 65mph down the road.

AFA the S/C belts snapping:

1) Check the alignment of the system

2) Check the supercharger spins freely, and has adequate oil supply (most are self contained)

3) Buy the correct size belt

4) Get the correct tension on the belt / system

If you want to know what goes into installing a turbocharger on a '94 1mz-fe. Join Toyota Nation, and search for 1mz Turbo. You want to read every post Tony the Tiger ever made.
