    The TRD supercharger program for all models was discontinued this year. You can still get their products.

    Toyota is not making any enthusiasts happy with that decision. Tree huggers / emissions regulations win.

    They are in the middle of uprooting their HQ to Plano Texas. Maybe once they get situated things will change. They are bringing out new engines

    Haha, nah, I was only joking. I hope TRD sticks around, sucks that they are ending their supercharger program. What else are you looking to get ?

    TRD blowers are done. Thats all they have announced so far, but keep in mind TRD really didn't make very much... the trd blower is an eaton m90 blower same thing as a lot of the mustangs run with a different housing to fit our motors and a bit different gearing (I think the gearing is different?). TRD brake kits for our truck are stop tech relabeled the intake isn't even a TRD design it was also farmed out. They again really did not design many things they just slapped TRD logo's on some of the higher quality modifications in the aftermarket world.

    We truly are better off if we can keep gadget busy with business for these trucks, gadget has done R&D that TRD NEVER DID at least for our trucks they didn't, yes they spent some time working on the the reflash of course but realistically I would bet gadget has more time under the hood than most of the TRD guys if not all especially since the founder of TRD (Jim Lanager) has been retired for years now...

    This isn't meant to be a TRD bash - Im a huge fan. It's just not as big of a loss as some people think.

    100% agree with all of this. URDs products are top notch and gadget will go above and beyond to help you out even when Touota won't. Shit I've had my truck at the dealership before for 2 weeks at a time and those jokers couldn't figure out the problem, but a 5 minute phone call to Gadget and without even seeing the truck he correctly diagnosed it. Seriously, gadget knows more about Toyotas than Toyota does. And he definitely cares about his customers more than Toyota does.

    i totally agree with the above statement. He does spend a lot of time doing R and D. So far every product I have gotten from him I have had no issues with it.

    I talked with a Magnuson rep at the Good Guys show in Scottsdale this past weekend. They will be updating their website very soon. They will be selling their kits which will include the fit kit, so it will be ordered based on engine/trans/yr combo. Kits are already in stock and will be the same as previous minus the TRD logo. Pricing will be released once website is updated. Toyota will still be able to do the ECU reflash.

    URD is a Warehouse Distributor for Magnuson and there is a pallet full of superchargers on the way to URD now.

    We have the 3.4L, 4.5L, and 5.7L systems on the way. They may release the 4.0L systems around the 1st of the year.

    They do not have tuning available for the 5.7 and 4.0L kits. URD will have the UCON ready very soon for all years of the 1GR so I am trying to get a pre-release batch of the 4.0L systems so we will see on that.
