4.6L Supercharger?

Is anyone else hoping for a 4.6L TRD Supercharger? They make one for the 5.7L, do you think they might make one for the new engine?

That would be great if they did...I just recently bought a 4.6 and was wondering the same thing...but I doubt they would. The 4.6 is more for fuel economy than power. I'm sure they would assume that if people wanted big power they would've bought the 5.7, that thing is a beast! I guess just like with anything else if there is a great enough demand for one then they will probably do it. I do hope they develop a TRD cold air intake for it though. I would definitely get one of those.

I know it's a long shot, but hey, if there's a demand for it they might! I like the fuel economy of my 4.6L but definitely wouldn't argue with more HP. True, I could have bought the 5.7L, but the only options in my area with a 5.7L were about 5 grand more than my 4.6L. The 5.7 guys can argue until they're blue in the face that the 5.7L option is only $1200-1500 but having that option on the same lot, or even in the area is rare.

If you want more power look into the lexus ls 460. Same engine, but makes just about the same power as the 5.7. I think the only difference is the injection system from some of the specs I looked at.

considering the 4.6L block is cast and the 5.7 is aluminum, Im positive the engine can handle boost. that said, i doubt toyota is going to make a trd setup.

someone with some extra money and a 2nd vehicle needs to go custom and lead the way. Id rather see a turbo than s/c. with the short stroke and high reving nature of the 4.6 its a perfect candidate for forced induction.

The 4.6 block is aluminum.

The old 4.7L was cast steel block. The new 4.6L is an aluminum block.

Good news for the 4.6L owners!

I emailed URD with the question of if they have plans to make a supercharger that would be compatible with the 4.6L and their reply was simply "Absolutely."

Actually, from looking at what they already offer, it looks like if you buy 2 or more the price drops from $5,995.00 to $3,895! Hopefully it will be the same with future superchargers from these guys.

very interesting. any more to add besides them saying absolutely?

where are they located? do they have a donor yet? someone needs to stay on it to show them our interest.

does adding a s/c take away or add to towing ability? im gonna guess it would make it less reliable to tow big loads, but thats speculation
