    Looking good here with lots of new info. I was partial to superchargers (for no good reason really), but with level of care and testing going on for the turbos, not to mention the price, I may go that route. Looking forward to more updates.

    I’ll be passing on this kit for a few reasons:

    1) For what this truck is to me, it’s not worth it. I’ll get a full size truck with a V8 for more power if I need it. For anything go fast, this truck is the last place I’d look.

    2) I’ve been the victim of new to market offerings in the past and paid for it dearly. I’m really interested to see how people running this kit like it in a few years and see how the engines hold up.

    3) The mechanical aspect of boosting a vehicle is easy, but the magic and real work of boosting a vehicle lies in the tune/tuner. I won’t ever boost a vehicle again without working with a local tuner. Every vehicle is different, every climate is different, and a canned tune for an engine like this that is controlled so much by the computer is not wise. I see the potential for a bunch of check engine lights and frustration.

    4) The limits of stock parts are unknown. While these engines do have forged connecting rods and crankshafts, the aluminum pistons are a huge concern to me. I foresee the same issues with these pistons as the hemi ones - the edges break because the top ring land is so close to the top.

    5) I need a CARB sticker. They are gold. For those saying they would remove the turbos, re-flash the ECU, and take the truck to be emission tested - you have no clue what you’re talking about.

    6) These trucks need power down low. Turbos traditionally lack low end torque. In my opinion, a supercharger would be a better choice for these engines.

    Just my .02. Good luck to those willing to venture into the world of boost. It’s addictive, fun, and expensive.

    You have added absolutely nothing to this thread.

    You're right though, full boost at 1800rpms and 350ft lb of torque by 2000rpms will do nothing for the low end torque of this engine :jerkoff:

    Thank you for your opinion.

    The Ford raptor ecoboost V6 3.5L makes more torque at low rpm than almost any other truck available that isn't diesel.
    And it doesn't use a supercharger.

    Ford has, in almost every ecoboost engine they offer, proven this notion that turbos cannot provide down low torque utterly false.

    From the 1.6, to the 2.3 to the 3.5. ALL of them provide more torque at low rpm than any, any supercharged competitor.


    Using a local tuner is not a bad idea, if they are an expert in your specific vehicle and tuning that engine. Otherwise that tuner is using most of the time for testing and discovery. Don't believe it, go look at all the tundras now being tuned locally with HPTuners. It's a mess.

    I challenge ANY supercharger on the market or coming to market to make more torque under 3000 rpm than our TT does.

    That's not to say supercharger won't be great on this engine. But I'd loveeee to see one make 25psi at 2500 rpm. Because that's actually possible with TTs.

    Now, I am a bit biased of course. It's my product, and my in house testing. But some of the things being said were true 10 years ago, not today.

    @OVTune can you post some pics of the engine bay with the complete turbo system installed? I’m trying to figure out if these will fit in the SR5 trucks since the ABS is in a different location from TRD models

    Someone say ecoboost :anonymous:

    Those Garrett powermax, are they the same ones used on the ecoboost? What's the deets on those?

    Also TTs are the best. You guys need to do an EFR kit next:thumbsup:

    can you post a pic of them in the installed working condition? for no other reason than we want to bask their glory?

    Passenger rear of engine bay is ABS location for non-TRD models

    Also, are my dual batteries in the way?

    What size batteries are those? I’ve never thought to put two that way.

    Be careful if you actually wheel hard with that dual battery side by side setup.
    I managed to break of the entire oil filler head on a trail in Arizona the engine has some play obviously and will knock the filler neck. If you wheel that is.. I went with the other option and put my other battery behind the air box

    understand I might be moving my second battery to the bed to fit the TT
