    im plannin on going s/c
    but i was wondering if the 05-06 s/c will fit the 08 tc.
    because i really dont want to spend 3500 dollars when the older one will fit
    As far as the TRD supercharger goes the 05-06 have a different part number for the one for the 08

    05-06 #PTR41-21005

    08 #PTR41-21070
    No it will not, the MAF is different and it requires the correct reflash from TRD.
    no it wont fit
    oh crap =[
    that really sucks.
    lol maybe i should trade mine in for an older year.
    I wonder, what if you get an aftermarket intake with the s/c. Then the older model superchargers should fit on a '07-'09 right?
    ^^^Maybe. How about we find out. You can use mine to find out and we'll let you know .

    But then there is still the tuning. But, that can be fixed to with aftermarket.

    Looks like in the end the price would be that same or greater the the 08 version.

    can't you just have your ecu reflashed at the dealership? Granted it will be a conservative tune, but would hold you until you were ready to upgrade.
    ^ I doubt they will tune it with an aftermarket intake. I believe an intake voids the supercharger warranty.
    You really can't get an aftermarket intake with the S/C... At least, not a full one. There's a lot of custom fabrication you'd need to do. Plus - the S/C kit itself was changed slightly between the '05-06 models and the '07+.

    #1 thing NOT to do - don't get the weapon-r supercharger sri... it throws off the air/fuel ratios like crazy (or so I've heard).

    If you want to add anything onto the S/C, you have to be careful - you need fuel management and tuning if you're gonna put on an intake, header, etc. Headers should be ceramic heat coated (Jet Hot or alternative) so you don't kill the S/C's shaft that extends across. Some headers will not fit properly. Megan for one - I know someone who has it on their s/c'd tc and they had to put a dent into the header (not good) to fit the s/c... and it's still touching, which means heat is transferring to the s/c itself (again, not good).
    Yes you can use a 05-06 on you 08. You need a 05-06 header or a aftermarket header that will fit with the s/c and just go to the dealer to get the ecu flash for a 08 supercharger kit. The maf has nothing to do with the install just the ecu flash. There is a few tc owners with this setup.

    WRONG. The header is the exact same part on the 05-09 tC...the MAF has EVERYTHING to do with the tuning of the ECM. It's a completely different part number and size.

    Not sure what you mean when you say:
    Quote:
    ...that will fit with the supercharger...


    The S/C has absolutely nothing to do with the header. That's why you can use any aftermarket header available for the tC with any year model tC as opposed to trying to do the same with intakes. The MAF is different.



    I have contacted Ken at TRDsparks so when he replies with the differences, I'll post his email on here.
    not the same part number for the header lol. I have a 07 tc and a 05 and they are completely different... yes its the same bolt pattern to the head, so both are interchangeable but not the same header by a long shot. its a different maf but that doesn't affect the location of installing the s/c. you have to get the 07-08 ecu flash from the dealer, obviously they are not going to put a 05-06 flash on a 08 cause it won't work.
    im shure that ken at sparks is not going to know any info on what's different with the two kits. please don't post WRONG when you don't know what you are talking about.

    ^^Wow, where to begin?

    1. The differences between the 05-06 superchargers and the 07-08 superchargers is that they come with different mounting brackets and a different intake due to the different MAF sensor. They also have a different tune as you mentioned since the compression on the engines is different. Simply getting an aftermarket header and an 08 flash will not allow you to install an 05 supercharger on an 07 tC.

    2. You are answering an 8 month old thread with incorrect information. Please look at the post dates before you try to reply in a thread and do your research before you go spouting off about how people who try to educate you are wrong when you were asking this same question a month ago on scionlife.

    I just purchased the TRD Supercharger, from Ken at TRDSparks and was told the part # PTR41-21070 for the 08 changed to PTR41-21090 being for the 09 tC, it will work fine on my 08, and will include improved upgrades

    Hmmmm....for your comment about the header, yes, the bolt pattern is the same and since you said to "find one that fits," that means you are going to use an aftermarket replacement. Ok....so you're trying to telling me that the aftermarket header models for the 05-06 are different than the 07-09 right? B/c of EPA regulations on the newer 07-09 models (slightly more hp than the 05-06), it's the CAT on the header that changes the part number, NOT the bolt pattern. You can interchange the header from each year (even stock), it's just going to cause the ECM to adjust the A/F a little more b/c of the difference in "filter" for the CAT.



    Yeah, I'm also sure that Ken wouldn't know what he sells:

    Hi,

    The 05-06 MAF placement is different and the flash is different. The earlier S/C just will not work on the later models. I hope that helps.

    Ken


    Should we all come to you for answers although you said EVERYTHING completely wrong? I don't see any mention of the header...do you?

    Silly kids....WRONG


    Locked b/c the correct answer has been confirmed by the vendor themselves.
    Apparently, Ken was wrong:

    b52hDunn has succeed with the install of the 05-06 S/C on an 07.
