Talked to dealer I bought my truck from. They can't sell me or install TRD supercharger on any Tundra going forward. Is there any issues with the supercharger?

I heard this also from my dealer. Apparently there has been too many failures due to people not running premium fuel. There is a spike in engine damage claims at the same time fuel prices go up and some pop over to regular gas to save a few bucks. The dealer did say the stoppage was temporary.

Moot point as far as I am concerned. I get expensive stuff from Sparks. I haven't bought a big ticket item from a local dealer since the truck itself. :lol:

Sounds like a road trip is in order - drive to the US have it installed and drive home. Problem solved - now you have a BA tundra like nobody else in Canada. :D

I was in training with a kid from Toronto a month back and he said they stopped sales of them at the dealership his buddy works at because of temperature reasons. Idk anything about them but he said it was because it gets too cold for them.

That was the issue with earlier flashes. Somehow the colder air causes detonation earlier, so they dialed back the boost (and probably the timing as well).
