    Lowered, Supercharged, CAI and Borla exhaust. 22" wheels and tires.

    I'm new to this forum but I have owned my Tundra since Oct. 2007. I lowered the truck, added a CAI, borla exhaust and ARE cap almost immediately. Later a powder coated bully bar. I bought the truck to tow my trailers, including my 23' enclosed car trailer. I live in Michigan but spend winters in Ft Myers, FL. I bought 2wd because I just didnt' need 4wd and wanted a lower stance. My truck now has 72,000 miles on it and I have recently added a Magnuson Supercharger.
    The combination of the supercharged motor, 6 spd auto trans and 4:30 rear gear is great.
    I just give it about 50% throttle and it just pulls right up through the gears and drops into 6th to cruise. I haven't taken a trip with the charger installed but I know my mileage will improve over earlier trips.

    I bought the entire pkg from TRD Sparks and Unichip. Total delivered to my installer was $6995. Unichip upgraded the programer for my CAI and exhaust. I received everything in 3 days. Install is more than the 8 hrs advertised IMO. We spent about 20 hrs total. The only mod needed was the Volant CAI did not line up with the intake so I purchased another CAI and it looks and works great.
    The difference driving my truck is night and day.
