Great questions, I'll do my best to answer them:Incredibly excited to hear that there's a viable, reputable supercharger option out there for us. Few questions though:
- Since it no longer carries the 'TRD' stamp and is truly an aftermarket accessory, what is the impact to our powertrain warranties (even if installed by Toyota techs)?
- What changes to the normal engine maintenance schedule/tasks would be required post update (for both FFV and non-FFV applications)?
- Do you recommend that an update to the stock exhaust system accompany the supercharger install?
- Finally, what's the expected turnaround time on an order? Is there a backlog for the kit?
Talk to Mike B at Cabe Brothers in Long Beach, they have a ton of experience supercharging Toyotas. Great example of a supercharger friendly dealership.I'm in Orange County, so cal. Not too far from you guys out there in Ventura. Can you recommend a great shop to install your super charger on 2012 5.7 tundra?
Thanks for the Updates Magnuson...Great questions, I'll do my best to answer them:
-Warranty-Legally due to the Magnuson-Moss act the dealership is supposed to honor your original warranty. However we realize some dealerships are more supercharger-friendly than others so we now offer a FREE 3year/36,000 mile limited powertrain warranty as well as a 5year/60,000 mile option for a reasonable price. You can check out the details on our homepage: magnusonproducts.com
-No change to your maintenance schedule, you will need to run Premium Gasoline, 91 octane minimum, including flex fuel trucks.
-All our systems are designed around the stock exhaust system however many folks are running our units with aftermarket exhaust. I would have a look on Tundratalk and see what is working best.
-We have 2007-2015 Gas kits on the shelf ready to ship. Also have 2005-2015 Tacoma and older 3.4L/4.5L superchargers on the shelf. Give us a call at 805 642 8833 and we'll get one to you. Free shipping right now.
-FFV and 2016 Gas coming as soon as we get the Bullydog tunes perfected. Sparks Parts is covering those applications right now with a Unichip.
