    Noticed these guys installed another fitting between the oil cooler and the oil filter. The fitting has two steel-braided hoses going into it. Does that look like part of a dry-sump system?

    More likely it is an external oil cooler.

    PCV catch can should not require steel braided lines of that size. Definitely oil lines at highe pressure.

    It IS the TRD X-runner, never in doubt. Interesting enough they are using the stock oil filter and oil cap instead of TRD parts. The TRD oil filter is suspected to be the same as K&N, which has less filter area and possibly greater pressure drop.

    So unlike the regular TRD supercharger, which has its own self-contained supply of oil, you think this one uses engine oil?

    I don't have a lot of experience with superchargers, I just know that turbochargers require engine oil pressure and perhaps some superchargers do the same. If this is a regular TRD supercharger, and if those have their own oil, then that leaves me with my other hypothesis, external oil cooler.

    Like I wrote before, it is the yellow X-runner. The magazine has action shots of the truck, so it ran...

    Looking at the other pics, the truck has a one-piece grille and bumper cover. Damn, wonder how much that cost to fabricate.

    The stock oil-to-water cooler should be sufficient. Honda sport bikes use a similar oil cooler and those engines rely tremendously on oil for cooling. I think the most appropriate reason for the fitting is connection to a dry-lump system. The stock 1GR-FE oilpan was never designed for the lateral g's this truck is capable of.
