    So my buddy's trying to talk me into setting up a turbo on 2010 RCSB sr5 trd4x4 with the 5.7. A quick search on here didn't reveal much. I'm hoping somebody might have a few pictures of a decent set up.

    Not to long ago we talked about a turbo set-up! There's a few that exist! I think I've read on a twin turbo set-up too! Gonna have to dig on that one! I got this same turbo in my GN in the ball bearing version! It's an AZZKICKER

    If you decide on doin this check into a shift kit along with wideband o2 sensor! An egt kit wouldn't be a bad idea either! Once you start forced induction crazy things can happen and QUICK! You really wanna get nuts add a methanol kit! Number thing you gotta watch out for is detonation! Good luck!!

    For those numbers, I feel like a supercharger would be a much easier route considering they are both putting out the same numbers.

    Well ideally I'm hoping for a cheaper option then the TRD/Magnuson s/c.

    I am also a little biased towards superchargers as well because I'd rather have the power through the whole range of RPM, not just when I'm at 4K+

    Our shop Tundra also had an AEM water-methanol injection system

    Depends on the size of the turbo, a lot of OEM setups use small turbos so you get full boost/torque as low as 1500rpm.

    The only problem I see in that video is there running a turbo that can support 800hp!! The turbo is flat out too big for the application! They would've been far better off with turbo that supports 550HP!! A 57mm turbine wheel along with a dual ball bearing would hit almost instantaneously!

    We are currently in the process of putting twin turbos on a 07 Tundra 4x4 and as you are finding this is no easy task. We have been fortunate to find a great support of people and shops here and there to help move the project forward. It is a little late in the build but the transmission and engine have been built to handle everything these turbos can put out. Keep in mind this is a mild build, being its uncharted waters, not much previous knowledge to pull from and its going to be an everyday driver that has to run on 91 octane fuel in 110*+ Arizona heat. Here are few pictures from the fabrication shop.

    66mm turbos are hardly mild :D Each turbo is capable of supporting what 800 HP! :eek:
    At what RPM you expect to see boost with those beasts? Turbos ball bearing or journal? Either way great work!! I'll be watching this thread from afar!! :)

    For larger engines, I prefer superchargers all day. Instant power without the lag or extra plumbing.

    The right turbo for the application will smoke a supercharger! I run 28 psi and theres nothing like it :D I can put you in the passenger seat at a dead stop and give you the oppurtunity to grab a 100 dollar bill off the dash at launch!! Youll never touch the dash much less the Hundy :eek: :p

    Although I agree the supercharger is wayyyy more practical for the Tundra :thumbsup:

    My mistake the turbos snap gauged at 53.5mm, see picture and they are journal type. I would tend to agree with the simplicity of adding a supercharge from a kit but this owner wanted to be unique and he voted for turbos. I believe the TRD supercharging kit can still be bought from Magnuson and Toyota TRD will even install a safe tune.

    Plus if you want to keep the hundie from gettin snatched off the dashboard our vote is turbos.

    Mike
    Yes the engine and the transmission both have been built to handle the anticipated HP of those twins. As for longevity its a fine relationship, when you want one higher the other will have to be lowered.

    We would rather not say, but as you can imaging it's not a small ticket...built engine, built transmission and a custom one off turbo system.

    I bet you would pay a hundred dollars for that show!

    What tune are you guys thinking about running on this setup? Also, is it going to be able to run e85 and switch to 93? I've been planning my own system on gt2860rs turbos and AEM Infinity. Big part for me is getting the manifolds made and the IC piping . Finding the pistons and rods are quite simple since C/P will make the pistons and Pauter has the X-Beam rods. Did you guys balance the crank?

    Lot of questions but thats what happens when you want to vent into the atmosphere!

    We're going to tune it on the dyno but Haltech might help us with a base tune. For simplicity we're only using 91 octane fuel maps. Yes, we internally balance the engine.

    Also if your looking for the same intake that's on the Dynosty rollers is was make by Sleeper Design.

    Cool! Yea the Haltech will definitely do it. Would there be a option for me to just buy the manifolds from you guys outfitted with the flange(s) of my choice? T4 with a vband wastegate pipe?

    I think we can work on something but let us get through this build first, that way we hopefully iron out most of the bugs.
