An additional injector in the manifold piping, larger primary injectors, Walbro high flow fuel pump, Walbro fuel regulator, and the Turbo/Ignition Management Computer has had the fuel map programmed for a high flow rate. Toyota engines have a lean fuel problem that leads to head failure when running any type of forced induction and they require a high fuel flow.(I replaced 2 heads in less than 6k miles before I modified the fuel system, this heads been on for 13k).tbplus10, what else did you do when you added the turbo to the toyota? My GTI gets 30 MPG turboed, and the guys I know that have turboed VR6's have gone up on mileage rather than down from the N/A days. Generally, it will require the premium fuel, but the only time it uses more fuel is in the high RPM range where the turbo is really blowing. Basically, with the way the engines run, at least in VW's, if you drive the same way as before, your mileage will actually improve when turboed.
Having said all this, on a big V8, I would go supercharger over turbo, because of better low-end effeciancy, and you don't notice the parasitic loss as much as you would on my mighty 1.8L.
