But why?

Rather sell and buy the V6?

If you think about it, the moment you install the supercharger, the secondhand value of your truck drops with at least 60%. Very few people will buy a vehicle with such extreme modifications.

Secondly, there are always teething problem with setups like this.

I would rather buy a standard V6, have enough power and even 4x4!

Search Alpine developments on the forum, IIRC someone lost a Prado motor after they tinkered with it?

You make it sound like an auto is bad?;)

The older V6's here available in manual, me think before 2009?

Please tell me your dislike in auto's, I personally enjoy auto's very much!

As long as i have the use of two legs and two arms, i'll drive a manual, but must say the V6 auto's are nice, well sorted and lively gearbox and the fuel consumption is much the same as the manual and no clutch problems
