Project Toyota Tundra - Installing and testing the TRD Supercharger Part2

In a flashback Friday we're taking you back to when we turned our Tundra into a "Huge fast house" and showed an Evo driver who's boss. We have been building our Project Tundra into the ultimate towing machine over the past year with the help of Toyota and TRD. Toyota and TRD’s accessories including the supercharger are great in the fact that they do not affect your warranty and can even be financed at the dealer at the time you purchase your car if you are so inclined.

When we last left off on Project Tundra we had installed a TRD cold air intake and TRD exhaust system.  We were enjoying the high quality, warranty friendliness and smog legalness of our TRD factory engineered performance parts.  However being how we are we still wanted more.  In our search for the ultimate tow and work vehicle, we obtained one of TRD's awesome supercharger kits.

It’s been a while since we tested our last power adder on Project Tundra, a TRD cold air intake.  Not that we had any complaints about our truck's power.  Project Tundra continues as always in service as our main office truck, hauling parts, towing our project cars around and serving as our mobile headquarters at events where it can haul scooters, photo gear, a race car, tools and parts.  Like our staff, our Tundra is always working hard.

Project Toyota Tundra Part 4: Genuine Toyota Accessories

By Mike Kojima

We hate cheesy aftermarket accessories whose lower quality often degrades a cool truck like our Tundra.  Well we found solutions to all of our practical issues with a trip to our Toyota dealer who helped us out with some high quality Toyota genuine accessories to fix our problems.  Toyota accessories are built to the same quality standards as the vehicle and will not degrade your warranty.  They are also warranted the same as the vehicle and if installed by the dealer at the time of purchase, can also be financed through the dealer.

Project Tundra Part 3, Making Life Better with 3M Crystalline Window Tint and Protective Films 

By Mike Kojima

We spend a lot of time in Project Tundra and if we can do a few things to it to make our life a little easier it is all a good thing.  All of our race tracks in Southern California are in hot areas and most of them are in the desert. This means that we are constantly fighting heat, blowing sand, debris and other severe environmental conditions. To help keep Project Tundra's interior cooler and to protect our paint, lights and trim from abrasion and pitting during road trips, we called upon the folks at 3M for help with some of their advanced film technology.

In our last edition of Project Tundra, we discussed why we selected what is now our favorite truck of all time. We basically needed an office hauler, capable of carrying parts, carrying our staff and towing race cars all over the place under all conditions.  It had to tow like a diesel and be reliable like a daily driver.

Project Toyota Tundra Part One, TRD Suspension and Brakes

By Mike Kojima

Since we are all about worry free towing, we decided to look into getting a new full size truck.  Over the years we have used about every truck on the market including the Dodge Ram and Ford F250 SD (which was our current favorite truck).  Dan Gardner, owner of our Project Scion racecar was awfully impressed with the Tundra he received on long-term loan from Toyota and recommended we give one a try.
