It’s no secret that Toyota truck owners can add up to 45-percent (or more) horsepower and torque to their rigs with a ProCharger blower. What’s not common knowledge, is these kits are all registered as 50-state legal, and emissions-compliant on every level. This even means you can supercharge your Toyota with aftermarket upgrades and still register your ride in the “Golden State!” So, no more fretting over the fuzz, passing out while trying to pass smog, or stressing over inspections during vehicle registration.
According to ProCharger, these 50-state legal Toyota superchargers encompass all 4.0-liter powered 2010-2020 4Runner models, 2016-2021 3.5-liter Tacoma models, and 2005-2015 4.0-liter Tacoma trucks. Increasing boost through the centrifugal supercharger kit is one thing, but doing it with reliability and efficiency is a harmonic and synchronized goal.
Supercharging The Venerable Toyota V6
Take the Toyota Tacoma 3.5L D4-S V6 engine for instance. ProCharger developed its bolt-on Toyota supercharger kit for this engine so that both its direct-injection technology and Atkinson cycle are capitalized upon. The result is a far more fuel-efficient, performance-packaged powerplant. A blower that as the video above clearly shows, delivers more predictable, useable power than say, a standard roots-style supercharger setup.
We are definitely excited about the 50-state legal status of our Toyota systems. Not many people in this segment know about how ProCharger helps improve drivability.—Karen Orlandi, Director of Marketing at ProCharger
Furthermore, an entire line of ProCharger Tuner Kits for this motor has been made available to the public. Kits that also cover the larger “GR” 4.0-liter Toyota V6 variant.
ProCharger Toyota Supercharger Perks And Package Options
Constructed for custom tuning, these kits are pure performance in a single package. High-octane pump gas, race fuel blends, E85, and methanol are all on the table with these blower sets. There’s also the opportunity to outfit things like ported heads, headers, exhaust, and aftermarket cams into the equation. Just note that ProCharger Tuner Kits do not come with tuning or fueling components.
Kits start at $6,298, with pricing per unit varying depending on the configuration. Here’s a quick rundown of the main benefits and package description.

Easy, Breezy Installs, Backed By Toyota Reliability
ProCharger superchargers have long been praised, not only for their performance capabilities but for their DIY-friendly methodologies as well. Toyota Tacoma and 4Runner owners can install one of these kits with common hand tools in their garage over a weekend. Each kit comes with detailed, step-by-step instructions, full-color pictures, and links to an array of video tips and tricks from dealers specializing in Toyota aftermarket upgrades.
It’s rumored these kits are so easy to install, they could potentially be done out on the trail. Perhaps we will explore this!
Being that Toyota superchargers are by no means considered “small ticket items,” reliability is vital. That is why ProCharger made sure that it was “paramount to focus on reliability” when designing Toyota Supercharger systems for these applications.
Toyotas are known for their longevity, and compromising this fact would surely tarnish the ProCharger name. This is why the brand uses only the highest quality materials. “Virgin” 356 aluminum alloy, heat-treated castings, and billet impellers crafted from 7075 T-6 aircraft aluminum all guarantee that safety and reliability remain at the forefront.
As with all ProCharger supercharger units, these Toyota-specific kits are 100-percent made in the USA. This is backed by “a consistently higher quality and speed/load rating” than competitors. This gives further cause for Toyota owners to opt for this far safer formula for adding big power to their Tacoma or 4Runner.
Parting Departure Angles
For those looking to add that custom touch to their ProCharger system, each of these kits comes with a host of options. From black and polished finishes to helical gears for noise reduction, these kits support an array of one-off mods. Each unit is also compatible with most winches, as well as engines with factory airboxes that have been affixed with a snorkel.
Finally, every Toyota Tacoma and 4Runner model listed above are covered by ProCharger’s newest certifications. This claim covers all sub-models as well. So regardless of whether your rig is a double-cab, two-wheel-drive, or premium grade, these ProCharger blowers have you taken care of and then some across this great land and 50-state legal!
