Hey, ok I think we got this figured out>I hope; yup.
Ok I finished my profile, signature, and photo updates. One thing I could not fit into the signature is that my Tacoma got a New Engine Mar 2018.
Story behind that is interesting; seems SB Toyota Dealer no longer does "Toyota" engines, they farm them out to a 3rd party vender who has certification to allow a 3 year warranty on all Toyota Engines via the Dealer. Hummm, ya - I got the hook line and sinker and opted to do this last year for the sum of 5k (engine only) another 5k for the labor (OUCH)!
But, they gave me the warranty; then I go, wait I want a TRD Supercharger! So they both can break in at the same time. Dealer said NO; we no longer do TRD Superchargers! Wait, WFT! OK, I don't care, I will put one on after the break-in period anyway, via my mechanic who takes good care of the truck - this year most likely. Who cares about the 3 year "oh we will check your engine to make sure it's working ok" warranty?
The reason I need a supercharger is most likely confusing others; well it is due to the weight of my truck due to all the mods. See, inspectorgadgets does not race or do bowls on the dunes, he uses the power for fwy acceleration and performance since the weight of the truck is average at 6k.
Heck my GF car can get on the Fwy fast than me....... SUCKS!
