    I’m a little upset I’m a douchebag and back in college because I like the sound of the trd pro exhaust on the 5.7. Damn, wish someone would have warned me, could have bought an at4 and not been all those things.

    No no no. No adding aftermarket options to increase sound. I can only imagine what that makes you!!! To the 3.5 raptor I go!

    Now that the tuner crowd is intetested in the Tundra, just wait... it won't be long before we start seeing new Tundras everywhere slammed to the ground with gaudy body kits and gigantic wings slathered all over them. Of course, there will be fart cans on the exhaust obnoxiously screeching out that god-awful high pitched BLAAAAATTTT!!! BLAAAAATTTT!!! everywhere they go.

    Then you can sit back and say "Wait, who's the douchebag?" :cheers:

    :rofl:

    I feel pretty certain that they could have easily gotten some more power out of the 5.7 (look at what longtubes add to their torque) and then coupled it with the new 10 speed and it would have yielded better results all around than the new motor with substantially less investment. But everyone is playing the image game and a V6 “sounds” more efficient.

    Powertrain development prioritizes emissions over all other considerations. HP, TQ, and MPG improvements are simply a byproduct.

    5.7 was great!

    No, I don't miss it, however, I need this V6 TT to withstand the test of time. Had my 2011 for 11.5 years and she ran as good as day 1 when I parted ways with her.

    Yep, and honestly, this is 99.9% of the reason that guys like me aren't in a hurry to switch; I assume it'll be reliable, but we all know what they say about assumptions.

    (The other 0.1% is the fact that mine's paid off and does more than what I need it to, so there's no need for me to buy a new one just yet, even if I can afford it.)

    Definitely do not miss the v8 from my 18 and 19 now in a 22, 3.5 is a big setup up in mpg, low end power, towing power and acceleration. Only thing I find annoying is the piped in fake engine sound, painful.

    i don't miss my supercharged 5.7 because i will never sell it so kinda cheating. kids grew up in it and we've been through a lot together over 14yrs so some sentimental value, not to mention they will never make a supercharged v8 that is trd oem again. i am likely to move to a hybrid in 1-2 years while i determine if i want to stay luxury or go with a pro. have a 22 platinum with 4k miles so far.
