Photo 2/30   |   Bringing up needle-burying speeds and hooligan-esque antics like this was easily accomplished by smashing down on the accelerator pedal and unleashing the full fury of the TRD-modified V-8. This Tundra hit 60 mph in 4.4 seconds and blazed through the quarter-mile in 13.0 seconds at 106 mph.
Under the hood of the second generation Toyota Tundra is a very stout 5.7L, delivering out of the box numbers that are very competitive in the fullsize truck market. At the crank, the new Toyota powerplant delivers 381 horsepower backed by 401 lb-ft of torque. Those numbers are enough to propel the Tundra from 0-60 in 6.3 seconds, while scooting through the quarter-mile at 14.7 seconds. We know those numbers are good, but more power is what we want out of our trucks. Using TRD's warranty-backed supercharging system ($5,875), you can easily and quickly transform your Tundra into a sports car slayer. With post operation numbers of 504 horsepower and 551 lb-ft of torque, the TRD supercharger will change your mild mannered truck into a street-ready beast with minimal effort and a one-day install.
What do you have to lose? Nothing, because the TRD supercharger is 50-state compliant and completely covered under your truck's five-year or 60,000 mile warranty. To see this kit in action, we went to TRD's main facility near our Southern California offices for a complete rundown on what's lurking under the hood of a Tundra at a stoplight near you.

Before figures came in at 309 hp and 328 lb-ft to the tires. With the TRD supercharger, the 5.7L put down 452 hp and 508 lb-ft of torque. That's an incredible 143 rwhp increase! The Tundra was making more than 400 lb-ft of torque from 2,700 rpm all the way to redline—it pulled like a freight train.
