SuperCharger for Flex Fuel

Does anyone know if they are going to produce a supercharger for the flex fuel models? I know that Hennessey performance will do a TRD supercharger install for you. They said they have the rights for the tuning portion. But, they want 11,000 dollars to do it. The supercharger is not even half that much to buy. Any ideas?

Here is what I've found out. If you can get a dealership to put in a non flex fuel ecm, and do the trd flash, you will have basically what the non flex fuel guys get. You can buy the super charger and install it, install a unichip, and have it custom tuned. The unichip solution tends to grenade transmissions because the chip only tunes the motor, not the tranny. Or go to Hennessey ... and I bet hennessey puts a non flex ecm in, and does it up.

As far as I know, all of these options would void your warranty. Once I hit 50k Im getting a new ecm (Im a flex fuel also), installing the super charger with an ase cert mechanic (my local dealership SUCKS) and finding a dealership that will do the flash.

Cool, I will have to wait for the warranty to end then. Then I will probably do it. Thanks for the info.

Here you go: (Ik they ruined a perfectly good Tundra..) I like the headlights though, I'm going to do mine like that. Already got the LED Strips but in blue and got VHT Nightshades.
