In 1986 Toyota introduced a supercharged engine for the MR2. Based on the same block and head, the 4A-GZE was equipped with a small roots type supercharger and a Denso intercooler. T-VIS was eliminated and the compression ratio was lowered to 8:1. It produced 145 horsepower and 140 pound-feet of torque and accelerated from 0 to 62 mph 6.5 seconds.
We have here a great example of a factory fresh MK1 Supercharger holding a 5 speed manual gearbox. It was imported in 2007 from Japan and underwent a full restoration in 2010. The only modifications consist of an aftermarket supercharger pulley, fully poly bushed and an aftermarket exhaust which was fitted in Japan.
