LCE 22RE supercharger??

I know this was brought up like a year ago, but i dont really remember what was said about it. Has anyone ever tried one?? I mean it looks like a basic part, but i do remember someone saying something about cooling problems. I am suggesting this, because i wanted to do a v8 swap, but I want to see what I can get out of the 22RE. I mean it would be the cheapest route and it has reliability on its side! Plus since my truck is 4cyl I would have to find another transmission, and I want to keep it all toyota.

So my question is: Is anyone running one of these? Cause I have never heard of anyone running one!

i havent seen anyone running that setup. Due to the cost i am not sure you could find enough power to make it a worthy purchase. Just my .02

Yeah I was kind of thinking the same thing, but if nobody has done it, how will we know!!! I mean either way I am going to mod the 22re before I do a swap, I would just like some peoples opinions on this!

For the money you could do the 3.4 swap

If your going to do the swap, why waste money modifing an engine your going to pull? You can gain more HP in the 22RE with upgrades but the cost to gain ratio is vastly lower than the cost to gain ratio of swapping in a V8.

Yeah I know, but everyone is swapping, taking the easy way. I want to be different, I mean even with my 22re burning a quart of oil every 2-3 days, It still has enough power to get itself out of the muck, and get over the rough stuff. I was going to do the V8 swap, but it actually will cost more, cause I would need a new transmission, new driveshafts, I would have to get custom adapters for the trans and transfer case. If you think about it!

I've run one on a 22R, not the 22RE. I also built the motor for it (lower compression/forged). In terms of rear wheel power, you really can't beat it with any other bolt on.

Cooling was never an issue.

On a "stock" 22re, you'll be somewhat limited to the amount of boost you can run. You may have to run higher octane fuel and retard base timing - I'd check with LC for sure.


My understanding is that the initial runs of these units had problems. They were designed to be draw-through, meaning that you pull the fuel/air mixture in from a carb. That mixture helped lubricate and cool the blower rotors.
The 22RE implementation is blow through - no fuel over the rotors and this setup had issues. I believe they actually pulled the product for a while and worked on fixing it.. Note this info is 2nd hand - so you might inquire about what they did to resolve these issues (if anything).


The unit is a positive displacement blower, meaning it will boost quickly. It's great for torque on the 22R series. Definitely something that you feel. It's hot a high RPM / high HP deal, but is usable in the normal driving range.

Boost is adjustable via different drive pulleys.


Downsides: not a terribly efficient or modern blower design.

The manufacturer (Atkins Rotary) provided excellent product support in my opinion.

3k is a decent price. You'd easily spend more than that if you built up a 22rte or 7mgte. More power doesn't come cheap.
