superchargers are kinda nice on s2000s since they rev to 9K...but not on yaris.
3500 and only 40 whp gain? NOS would be much more efficient. Though, the new Blitz Vitz superchager can be turned completely off..that's not bad for fuel efficiency, either.
Yeah, but you don't supercharge a car for fuel efficiency.
40whp gain sucks. Not worth the money.

but this is 40whp on a car that makes 100whp on a good day, that's a 40% increase...

on a small displacement motor like the 1nzfe, i'd rather sacrifice 10hp to drive the blower, and make 40hp of it back, and keep the low end response and driveability for a car that is gutless down low when stock. its hard to find a turbo small enough to be driven by such a small motor, minimal turbo lag, yet still give decent gains in the top end.

sure you can run nitrous and get similar results, but what you don't get is everyday access to that power, and legally, i do not believe you are even allowed to drive a car with the nitrous hooked up.

You have a point Ron, but then again you might as well look into what it would take to perform a swap for that kind of cash....but you do make good points.
