    I bought a 2016 with the ffv engine. I saw a supercharger for sale used but still a killer price. Stated will work with any 5.7 except ffv engine. Since i have an ffv does this mean i wont be able to install any toyota super charger.

    I could be wrong on this, but I thought you just needed a Unichip to run a SC on an FFV engine. One of the guys with a 3rd gen will likely be able to answer this more in depth.

    The super charger was a toyota trd for around 3500. It was used but i thought it was a good deal for the price. Either way i think its gone was going to have toyota install it to not mess up truck warranty. Dont have cash for a new one right now. Will just have to keep saving till the time is right

    Hi,

    I have a 2015 FFV with the TRD supercharger. The install is easier on the FFV trucks than the factory trucks. You don't need to change out the fuel pump in the tank and you don't need to switch fuel injectors. The unichip will work fine, but does have funky shift characteristics, you can also contact Sparks Toyota and order their FFV Bullydog tuner. They have exclusive rights to it through Bullydog. So you cant order it from anywhere else. But it fixes the shift issues associated with the Unichip. But no issues with either route. I have been running the Unichip for almost 3 years now. If you find a left over TRD SC, you will need the 2014 fit kit also to go along with it. Also with the unichip, you will have to use the factory air box and not the larger TRD box to get proper A/F ratios with the Unichip.

    the unichip is obsolete with the bullydog. Way closer to oem quality. And less money too:)

    I can send a whole supercharger kit, bullydog, shipping, everything to your door for $6150 BTW

    I've been out of the forum game for a while and must have missed this. I thought the FFV engines couldn't be SC'd. what changed? Is it reliable to SC a FFV? very curious as I have wanted to throw one on mine.

    Man that is an awesome price @dirtydeeds. A SC is on my list of things to add. It looks fairly straight forward to install, just follow the instructions and have a buddy to help. I'm slowly convincing the wife i need it while saving up the money so I can pay cash.

    Also how much pedal response do you get? Superchargers should put you in you seat.

    For the SC? Pretty intensive labor. I believe the FFV doesn't require a different fuel line though.

    Regarding placing u in ur seat...ya, it can do that.

    If you go to the Magnuson site, you can read the installation guide for free to see if it is something you are comfortable doing yourself or look at their list of installers near you.

    OMG!!!!!

    17+ MPG?!?!?!?!?!?
    I just did a 1100 mile round trip up & down I-65 and didn't even come close to 14 MPG.

    I suspect a big part of that is the fact the truck has Nitto Exo Grapplers in 305/55 R20 on it.

    Oh, I'm aware, but was thinking that there is a cap, given the rear diff, transmission ratios, & engine RPMs where fuel efficiency is capped. I had a similar discussion almost 10 years ago with a friend/USAR commander who had a diesel F250 about CAI & that engines are air pumps. If you are moving at the same speed down the road but the output is higher at lower RPMs, you HAVE to have better mileage.

    I'm considering a Bullydog platinum for the non-engine related capabilities & the fuel efficiency mode but right now I'm driving with the instant efficiency gage in the display window just to help keep my foot off the skinny pedal. One of the reasons is to program the truck with the tire size currently on the truck. It is ~3.5% high, truck reads 100 miles when I've actually traveled 103.45 or so.

    I've got access to a decent DIY garage but the SC install is a little more complicated than I want to tackle. I have changed out master cylinders, brake cylinders, BMW starter, and routinely do oil changes & brake replacements, but I get skittish around transmission & timing work.

    The computer reads false milage readings with the SC. If you hand calculate my mileage I get around 11.4 MPG, the running joke for a long time was I was getting 19.4 mpg according to my Tundra it was manufacturing fuel. SC'ed trucks don't do much over 12mpg.
