Default Boosted the DD

This is my DD, an 09 Yaris Sedan. I bought it new in 09 and have been slowly modding it. It's lowered, has replacement exhaust, header, pulleys, a fair bit of audio and interior work, etc. I hadn't done anything real major to it until recently, when I put a Blitz supercharger on it



With the S/C, this thing FLIES! I was really surprised how much extra kick it gave the car. It's like a whole new vehicle. I know a few other guys here have Yarii, any of you guys boosted?

I wanted to boost my Camry but read a lot of complaints about the auto trans not being able to handle the power

This S/C only works with the 1NZ-FE, but Blitz probably makes one for that motor. Mostly the only difference in them is the manifold and pulley alignment brackets.

It was $4k shipped for the Blitz supercharger and the 3 Blitz/Uras gauges. The Blitz is a lot more expensive than a turbo, but you don't have to tune and it's a direct bolt on without having to do any fab work at all.

www.microimageonline.com is where I get all my Yaris stuff. He has Scion, Honda, and other small car parts too. I've dealt with Garm (the owner) and Jeff (the guy that does most of the sales now) and they are both real knowledgeable and will work with you to make sure you get what you want. I've been buying parts from them since 2009 and never had a complaint.
