ken's price is really nice. plus shipping, or course, but it is still less than retail at most shops, including mine.

We are hearing labor prices from $550 to $950 depending on the area. We're charging $380.00 right now, but that will be going up to $450.00-$490.00 after the next install. My guess is that you're going to be looking at $850.00 in your area.

yep, that sounds about right. my installed price on it is right at 4K. get the part from ken (dont tell my parts guys) and you can at least save a dollar or two.

I dont think 4000 dollars is worth it.... u could get a turbocharger for that price and easily get your horsepower up to 300....if the supercharge was priced more around 2000 id get it but trd will never let that happen

However the blower installed by the dealer is going to be covered under the tC's warrenty. That itself is worth it's weight in gold. Unless you're prepared to work out every bug/hiccup/blown-ring-land then I would suggest TRD's blower.

yes, you could get a turbo for about 3. and then you have to have it installed. unless you do it yourself, which is not something the masses are going to do, the the cost effectiveness hasnt changed, and you are probably going to shear an axle sooner than later (torque matters in this regard). with your warranty shot from the turbo, you get to play uncle moneybags and cough out the repair dollars. and, if you got pulled over in california, your car just got towed and impounded. add another 1200 bucks to your turbocharger costs. and now you have to return it to stock and get it signed off by the chp.
now why didnt i go turbo?

The dealership I bought my tC at charges 2,220 for the supercharger and about 900+ for the install. So i was lookin at about 3l - 3.1k ish. I don't know if theprices are still the same, that was when i purchased the car.
