    Anyone install the Magnuson Supercharger on their 5th gen yet? I may pick up a new TRD Pro with one already installed tomorrow. Curious how they perform, maintenance, mpg, and pros/cons...

    You may be the first I've heard of with that setup. Looking forward to a review if you go through with it as I'm looking to add a S/C to mine.

    I’m planning to drive it later today, hoping these contractors at my house hurry up! Stuck waiting around until they finish or leave, poor planning on my part... If I do pull the trigger, I’ll absolutely write a full review. It has a Magnuson S/C, 4.56 gears, Icon UCAs w/Delta joints, Icon spacer for leveling, Toyo 33’s and a few other small mods (it was a test build for the S/C).

    Working on the numbers to put a deal together, thought I’d share a few pics in the meantime...

    As far as the S/C, it definitely adds A LOT of power. The sound is very different (far less desirable than my TRD Pro Tundra dual exhaust, which I expected) and the power band will take some getting used to. The dealer that has this T4R, has sold 4-5 S/Cs since they let a few people test drive it.

    Waiting on the dealership, it’s on hold for me until they figure out my trade value (‘17 TRD Pro Tundra).

    I thought only Mike Douglas could make you do that? Ida Mae Jensen. ROFLAMO. Nutty Professor with Eddie Mirphy at dinner table scene.

    Should we even ask how much they want for that?? Add-ons are probably marked up like crazy.... $60k and some change?

    Not that bad. Once I put the deal together, I’ll let you guys know exactly.

    They’ve been silent all day, hoping they didn’t sell it out from under me...

    Yeah, I had a 4RP sold to someone else after I had a deposit put down. Good luck man! I hope you can get the deal finished.

    According to the dealership, they are now using this 4Runner to demo S/Cs... They’ve sold 4-5 and have installed most of those. There’s an issue though, it appears they may have to send the ECUs to Magnuson for proper programming. The remote delivery of software is not “taking,” so several T4R owners are in rentals until they sort it out. The demo vehicle’s ECU was programmed by Magnuson.

    I would agree with your buddy, but still a huge improvement over stock. Believe it’s still there.
