What if you could dramatically increase the performance at every level of your driving experience? What if you could do this without spending every dime you've ever made? What if you could have it all done by the time you picked up your brand-new truck? Recently, we had the chance to visit TRD in Tustin, California, to photograph the installation of its supercharger on a 3.4L Tacoma V-6 that we brought along as a guinea pig.
When all was said and done, TRD had installed a significant increase in power production, while maintaining 100 percent of the new-vehicle warranty on the truck. They did all of this on a truck that mini-truckers drive daily - a 'bagged and slammed Taco'. Now anyone who's in the market for a new truck can have their own ride blown before even taking delivery. For the details on the installation process, read on.
