Hello All,

Has anyone ever heard of a turbo Previa? Of course, there are the Previas with the S/C engine coming stock from the factory between '94 and '97. But I have the '92 LE without the S/C and need/want more power! I tow a large utility trailer around alot and could really use the increase in acceleration and towing torque. I've thought of adding a supercharger from the S/C engine, but have heard that that takes a lot of work. I'm thinking a turbo setup may be simpler and provide more performance gain to boot :) I read about one guy online stating that he had done a setup like that, but there was no contact information available for him. Has anyone here heard of such a thing and know how it is done? Thanks.

There are a few hard core guys adding small turbos to their S/C Previas and running them both in conjuction....


There's quite a big difference between the N/A (2TZ-FE) and S/C (2TZFZE)

The S/C engine has a lower CR and is built with forged internals, so they can handle pretty much all the boost you can throw at it:smokin:


I wouldn't attempt adding forced induction to the N/A plant without upgrading the internals as well :shakehead
