Cool SC TRD Pro from Factory

Hello all! I am new to this forum but not to Toyta

I've owned a FJ cruiser, 4Runner Trails, Lexus IS-F and on a side note have a 2013 Raptor.

My Pro is being built in a couple of weeks. Dealer is asking what additionals I want it to come with. I said SC. They said, not sure it can come from the factory like that, we may have to put it on after it gets here. I say, let's ask. No asky no getty and I don't want to pay a bunch of dealer bs.

Has anyone received or ordered a Tundra that already had the SC installed from the factory. My push in doing this is so that it will be apart of the factory warranty and hopefully little to no install costs.

Thanks!

It's dealer installed. And it comes with and is eligible for all warranty when installed at the dealer esp when brand new. I would recommend that you break in your engine first and then get it put on. But with today's newer engines it might not matter as much.

I have had many buddies that when they buy their truck the stipulation is that they will pay the parts and the dealer does the install for free. If your dealer won't do that then find a new one.

Never seen one come from the factory as they are dealer installed and considered aftermarket. Dealer installed for the full power train warranty, 5yr/60000mi. If you installed it yourself you only get 12 month/12000mi. They also cannot be part of your financing. There would be no problems having it installed on a new engine.
Enjoy!!

I would check around with dealers near you to see who has actually installed one. They aren't hard to do, but there are a lot of steps and takes about a full day. If you are buying it through them, they should be installing it for free though. As others have said, this is something that has to be done at the dealer. Good news is that as long as they install it, you keep your full warranty.

The BIG Question that you have to ask FIRST is the TRD Pro you are getting a FFV (Flex Fuel Vehicle)??!! IF it is, then there is no dealership that can install a TRD S/C on it. There is no tune for it and you'd have to go 3rd party install with a Unichip tune. I seen it done. Also becareful what the dealership tells you. They may say we don't know, or no it is not FFV, but when you pay for it and get it, it is indeed a FFV.. Only the gas cap will tell you when it says FFV on it. Its not visible outside with any decals.. You can order a NON FFV Tundra from states like California or Vermont I believe and truck them in.. IDK forsure. Just sharing what info has been shared by others. Good luck..

Under the hood for engine type it'll tell you.

3UR-FE is gas

3UR-FBE is flex fuel

Great insight there thank you. Unfortunately, I am in Alaska and we only have two Toyota dealerships, both of which are owned by the same auto group (Kendall). I will push for a free install for sure. Any idea which dealerships you buddies used in case I need to get specific?

Awesome info thanks. Any idea if I bump up to a 7year/125K Platinum if it falls into that warranty as well? Even if I don't keep it that long it sure helps a lot with resale when that type of warranty is intact.

I appreciate that on the FFV. As far as I know this is not FFV (don't think they send those to Alaska). The truck is being built next week so I will double check. Is there anything in the VIN that tells that information?

The platinum warranty covers it too. Nice to have that coverage and alleviate worries that some may have going supercharged.

I believe if the 5th character in your VIN is a "W" it's a flex fuel.

Impossible to get a S/C from the factory.

Good luck on the free install, doesn't hurt to ask. I doubt they throw in 1.5 days worth of labor for free.

Biggest issue is finding out if this is going to be a FFV or not as @jbroas mentioned. FFV means its going to be more difficult to S/C and I would imagine it wouldn't be covered by factory warranty.

As someone who works at the Tundra plant, I can also confirm that getting a SC from the factory is never going to happen.
