Question?

A friend of mine totaled his 2003 SUPERCHARGED Vibe and has asked if i want the supercharger for $1500 w/ about 8000 miles on it he paid just over 4k for it. First off both of us have the same engines 1zz, but will it there be any Hood clearance? and secondly im running a 45 shot of N2O and i havent the slightest idea if i could run the two together. If there is anyone who could speek there knowledge it would help a great deal.

I know Hood clearance will be a problem, but don't know about 45 shot.

Just cut a hole in the Hood, and have some kinda scoop, or hump made there out of fiberglass. wink I'm sure your local import shop can do it for a few hundred. Isn't the Vibe a Pontiac?

Pontiac Vibe shares the Toyota Matrix build.

You could do it, but good luck getting it under the Hood.

Plus, you'll have to find someplace to install it, unless you know how, there isn't a single person here with the TRD charger. frown

Why would i need to have it installed? i didnt think it was like a turbo which needs to be tuned, just bolt on and swap the ecu's and be on your way. maybe a day or two of work
