    I'm considering 2 options for my 06 tundra. A 4.7l just doesn't seem enough so I would either like to swap for a 5.7 or turbo the 4.7, does anyone have suggestions or other ideas...

    Depends on what you want out of it....supercharger is by belt and turbo by exhaust...if you want massive power twin turbo is where it's at

    A remote turbo would be sick, low boost and a good tune would probably run really well. I believe it's the connecting rods that are the weak link in our engine. Read that somewhere I think.... I think I'm gonna stick with intake, exhaust and headers for mine. It does what I need it to do. Hard to ask a 4.7 to perform like a 6.2

    This. 2UZ rods are cast. Running any kind of forced induction on them and poof. Babies in the oil pan.
    Short of doing a completely built engine, I wouldn't turbo it.
