I don't have the S/C yet but I'm seriously considering it. I've always believed in doing as much of my own work as possible. I looked through the installation instructions for a TRD S/C and I'm pretty confident I can do it. I looked at all the little steps and how much attention to detail is required and I have little confidence that a dealer tech will get all 100% of this right.
This is the warranty statement I've been reading;
"Warranty is the same as any other TRD powertrain components: 12 months or 12,000 miles. Superchargers installed by anyone other than an authorized Toyota dealer are warranted for 12 months or 12,000 miles. Specific warranty information is included with the supercharger."
I'm reading the warranty info a few different ways and I wanted some clarification on which is correct;
A) If I install this, I void my 5yr/60Kmi powertrain warranty and only the TRD S/C components are warranteed for 12,000mi.
B) If I install this, I keep my 5yr/60,000mi powertrain warranty, but the TRD S/C components are warranteed for only 12,000mi.
C) Same as B but Toyota can blame any powertrain failure on the S/C that I installed, leaving me with essentially no warranty.
