TRD S/C - Install myself or let stealership do it?

SUPERCHARGER IS ALREADY INSTALLED. THANKS FOR LOOKING


I find it hard to believe that this many people voted to let high school dropout techs work on their vehicle, when most of you are probably capable to do it yourselves. o well

How many miles on your truck? If under warranty let stealership do it if the price is right due to warranty.

this is what the warranty info says:

"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."

So it seems like even if they do it or someone else, the warranty is still the same so i guess the ball is in your court if you feel up to it and confident enough then go for it

i have 3800 miles on my Xrunner

im not worried about keeping the warranty, because it will be warrantied as it is a genuine toyota part

warranty information as i read it:


"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 installed my URD one and I'm just a saturday mechanic, I'm pretty sure you could do the TRD in less then 7 hours with you n a buddy or even just you. Then you'd only have to get the toyota dealership to do the computer reflash and your golden
