    I just installed it this week. Sound loud when i start it. But sounds normal at idle and driving. Sounds loud when I turn it off to. Has new serpentine belt and SC belt. Guys over at tacoma world says it sounds normal.
    Could it be the coupler going bad? Here is my youtube link of my supercharger

    really hard to tell from the low quality video. Did you have it re-flashed yet? Id bring it to the dealership if your really worried about it.

    Something sounds funny. I'm not sure if that is the S/C though. I hear a knock like the timing is off a little.

    I figure out the noise. The guy that installed my TRD SC over torqued the camshaft pulley with 270 foot/lb. Should of been 270 newton/lb.
    He cracked the pulley and a piece was floating and making the noise. When engine oil started leaking we figured it out. He had to replace pulley and gasket. It sounds quieter now

    Glad you were able to figure it out. That video sounded to bad to really tell what was going on. Enjoy your boost!!!
