Project Tundra: Getting More Grip with an Auburn Gear HP Limited Slip Differential

by Mike Kojima

Supercharging Project Tundra is one of the best things we have ever done to any project vehicle in the MotoIQ fleet.  The TRD supercharger has proven to be totally reliable in thousands of miles from towing up hill in blazing heat to driving all over the place.  It has also proven to be economical as our normal driving gas mileage has not changed at all.  If anything the large amounts of power have had only one negative effect on the truck, no traction.  To help deal with this we obtained the only limited slip diff on the market for late model Tundra's, the Auburn Gear HP Limited Slip Differential.

Project Car Update:  The V8 Edition

By Colin Holte

A quick glance at the project car column should tell you that MotoIQ has a large (and ever expanding) roster of project vehicles.  With all these vehicles it can sometimes be tough to keep the updates flowing for each.  In some cases vehicles may have even been sold but we still keep them on the project roll for posterity.  These articles are intended to share a little bit of the details with you of where some of the project vehicles that haven't seen the spotlight in a while are at in their evolution.  In this installment we check in with the V8s:  Project Mustang V8 5.0, Project Tundra, Project V8 RX-7, and Project Lexus IS F.
