Figured since the older Frontiers were SC'd, I thought someone out there was going to produce a SC for the 2005. Anyway, reply to the post if you have heard of anything or if you do hear of something later on.

Most likely candidate is the Stillen S/C. Word is that they are adapting their 350Z unit for use with the VQ40 engine in the Frontier/Pathy/Xterra. Price should be somewhere north of $5k. I think I'll pass. I have installed aftermarket superchargers on a couple of trucks in the past (a Whipple S/C on a Chevy V-8 Blazer, and a TRD Toyota unit on a 4Runner) and regretted having done both. Power was nice, but I had to rebuild the transmissions on both trucks and both units tended to eat drive belts, not a good trait if you desire reliable transportation. Another factor is octane requirement; my Frontier with Gibson exhaust and aFe intake is making 235 REAR WHEEL horsepower on 87-octane gas--that's pretty stout, and I believe that I'll stick with that for a while.

I heard TRD is making a supercharger for the new Tacoma. Hopefully Nissan will want to compete and make a Nismo Supercharger for thr Fronty. Which will more than likely be covered by a factory warranty. Plus it should be cheaper than Stillens $5K or more price. You can probably buy, and have it installed for less than that, if they decide to make one. It looks good so far because they make one for The Titan. We'll see.....

supercharger for 2005 frontier

Stillen is currently testing one. scheduled for release early 2006. As soon as the TITAN kit is finished the frontier kit will be released. I am looking forward to it. The tech I talked to said that with tuning they saw as much as 500HP!!!!
