    I have seen the super charger on them so it can be done. 4 psi is all I would expect and at that point is it worth the cost?

    I ran with no intercooler for a while (well, technically an intercooler under the hood with no airflow), and when I got the intercooler properly ventilated, the improvement was drastic. I would definitely recommend the intercooler. I ran 5.8psi with no issues.

    I don't know anything about what's necessary to make it work on an obd1 1fz, but i'm sure it's possible. Heck, you might even have better luck with piggyback controllers, which pretty much universally do not work on obd2 1fz.

    I don't think you will find much. I only know of 2. One did a lot of work changing from VAF to MAF the other never got finished.

    they will also tell you that you cant really turbo the early trucks with the VFM/AFM but need the style with the MAF.

    The fact that he posted his mileage in kilometers makes me think you might be on the wrong track here. I would start by asking what country he is from. He may not be dealing with the same emissions equipment you are. If that's the case then his experience may not be of much help to you.
