In case anyone missed it, Magnuson has ramped up it's teasing of the new supercharger. Rumor has been that Tuning the ECU has been a significant hurdle for multiple SC manufacturers. However it appears Magnuson has gotten past that hurdle and is preparing for launch. Videos of TacomaBeast' truck getting the install and the truck running on a dyno have surfaced online and a upcoming YouTube feature are being teased.

The kit is now also back up and listed as coming soon on Magnuson's site. Pricing is listed at $6,565 for a claimed 30% power gain.

There are also a number of videos up in TacomaBeast' IG story, but those will disappear soon obviously.

Currently their are 4 options in the works for forced induction for the 3rd gen Tacoma. 1 Twin Turbo Kit from Orange Virus Tuning which is currently shipping the first batch to customers. and 3 Superchargers, all still in development. Magnuson, Harrop, and URD. Magnuson now appears to be the closest now to releasing a SC for the 3rd Gen.

So, who's interested and considering picking up Magnuson's new kit? I am, as it will likely be the only one that is CARB legal, so my options are limited. I will say, OV's TT kit looks pretty amazing as well. Thoughts?

Here's some videos of OV's TT kit in testing....

I've been saving for this one. The truck needs a bit more power so badly.

I just did a 10 day trip, before leaving fully loaded I was at 7300#s still had power due to 5.29 gears and OV tuned, however I agree could defiantly use more!

The twin turbo setup sounds insane. Love the blowoff valve sound.

If I plan to keep the Tacoma I'll totally do a super charger or turbo kit once it's all paid off & out of warranty haha

Edit: just saw the turbo kit priced on their site at $4249... would totally go that route over the supercharger I think

That $4249 kit is a solid setup. Sadly it'll never be CARB legal. Which for me sadly is kind of a necessity.

Couple of new videos and some info out there about the Magnuson kit.

These pictures were taken at Down East Offroad when they were installing a test kit on YotaMafias truck. The kits are currently still in preproduction testing apparently.

Tuning was done by Magnusons in house tuners using VFTuner software developed by Orange Virus Tuning. Just to be clear, OV did not make the tune for the Magnuson SC, but we do have Mat OVTune to thank for releasing his VFTuner software which has allowed Magnuson to finalize their kits software.

Rumors popped up of the Magnuson kit software being capable of adjusting and correcting the speedometer issues that effect trucks with larger tire sizes, these are false. The software being used to tune the trucks is incapable of correcting speedomoter for tire size. This is because the speedometer has a separate control module from the ECU and TCU. The only way to correct for this is the Hypertech "Inline Speedometer Calibrator Module" and the Rough Country "Inline Speedometer Calibrator."

Power output is rumored to be 32% increase putting the kit at 373hp and 332 ft-lbs of torque at the crank, equivalent to 308 rear wheel hp. It won't make the truck a rocket, but it should have usable power finally.

Dyno results from a third party are not yet available. I'd just like to go on record that I'd love to help out in that arena ;)

CARB certification is a must for many of us including myself and I have it on direct authority from a buddy who works at Magnuson that the process is already underway. They hope to have certification by November as they have a vey good relation with CARB from regularly certifying their new kits.

And now for the fun stuff.....

This next video is a little bit of a let down honestly. I'd like to think that starting a pull on the highway from rolling that high in the gears wouldn't be the best place to show power.

Procharger should be releasing their kit pretty soon too. I have no idea what they are doing for tuning though.

Harrop and URD also have had kits mocked up and mounted onto trucks for a while now. We'll see if they move closer to production soon as well.

competition shoulder drive market price down, good for us!

Hopefully that's true, but honestly I don't see the price dropping anytime soon. They know what they have and the demand will be high so they'll likely keep the price where it is.
