TRD Supercharger Available for FJ Cruiser, Tacoma

October 30, 2007

Toyota Racing Development (TRD) today announced that a TRD supercharger for the Toyota FJ Cruiser sport utility vehicle (SUV) and Tacoma pickup truck equipped with 4.0-liter V6 engines is now available through Toyota dealerships.

The TRD supercharger will increase both engines' output up to 304-horsepower from the original horsepower (236-hp for Tacoma, 239-hp for FJ Cruiser), while increasing the torque output up to 334 foot-pounds. Both horsepower and torque ratings are SAE net.

This all-new TRD supercharger is compatible on all 2005 through 2008 model year Toyota Tacoma trucks, and 2007 and 2008 model year FJ Cruiser SUV. This supercharger system features Eaton roots-type rotating components in a one-piece integral manifold, iridium spark plugs, and a five-rib serpentine drive belt system. In addition it produces six to eight pounds of boost pressure per square inch.

The supercharger, when installed by an authorized Scion or Toyota dealer, has the same warranty as powertrain, five years or 60,000 miles, or the balance of the new car warranty, whichever is greater. When not installed by an authorized dealer, the supercharger is covered by a 12-month, 12,000-mile parts-only warranty.

The manufacturer's suggested retail price of the TRD supercharger is $4,500, not including installation.
