    but seriously, as you can see in my post, I live in good ol' Canada, where everything is hard to get. It seems the TRD supercharger isn't coming to Canada until late september. My question is this, does anybody know if I can buy one from the states (prob ebay), and then get it installed by a dealer here in Canada, and still keep all warranty and stuff?

    If you look at the feedback for that supercharger thing, tons of people have bought one, lol.

    You dont want one of those. You will get better gains by running 91 octain fuel in your truck. A buddy of mine ran one on a dyno and the gains were insignificant. They were within the margine of error of the dyno. For it to make REAL power, it would drain the battery in minuets.

    I'm sorry, you misunderstand. I am talking about the actual trd supercharger for my truck. I am making fun of the crappy little leaf blower supercharger.

    lol. Ok guys. seriosly. I don't want the crappy supercharger thing. If you look real close in my first post, I said trd supercharger. I only posted the crappy electric "supercharger" because I though it was funny that people would actually buy it.

    So...

    In Canada, where I live, I cannot purchase a TRD supercharger (~$4000). I cannot do so, because the toyota dealers cannot get it until late september, when the TRD supercharger comes to Canada. I am wondering if I can purchase it from ebay (the $4000 one, real TRD) and get my local toyota dealer (in canada) to install it, keeping all warranty intact.

    Sorry for the confusion.

    I would think it would still be under warranty. Best to ask the Toyota Dealer. Your truck may have some slight differences than one in the US. That might be the reason that you can't get one now; Toyota may be working out any kinks. Or Canadian regulations preventing them until Sept.
    I know when I bought my 05 in 05, the supercharger was an option.
