    Default Turbo 2uz-fe?

    Is the engine capable of a turbo application with say just some stronger rods and turbo pistons. The block is iron so it should be able to handle it. Just kinda curious as I'm wanting to get some decent horsepower gains out of my Tundra.

    yes, but no more than 5 pounds of boost.
    or search the forum. .
    or look at boosted tundra's. or STS turbo's.
    boosted turbo's are now a direct bolt on.& ifou get your truck to them, they will install for free.
    also 2003 's have a trd super charger, look here and on ebay there are alwasy a trd s/c for sale.
    also you can get in touch with lextreme, for all needed parts.
    good luck,

    Why is 5psi the max? Even after replacing the rods?

    You can go more than 5, but only if you properly increase your fuel supply also....

    And I would replace the head studs with better ones before bothering with rods and pistons..

    I am running 9psi boost (supercharged) with stock motor, but that is maximum for this engine. If you replace Rods and Pistons, with better ones, I think you can get even more boost. It all depends what you are planning to do.

    I did want to add that 5 psi on a V8 with a good flowing turbo does make ridiculous power. I just miss my DSM days of being able to run 28 PSI on a stock 4 cyl motor :-(

    I am not sure about temps, since I have not measured them.

    I am still in progress of tuning my truck...

    If I had the coin I would be really considering this:
    YouTube - Turbo Toyota Tundra: THE TUNDRACHARGER
    It looks like a very nice setup.
    Then, if you upgrade the internals down the road, this kit could also be upgraded. Id love to see someone build a 600-700 hp 2uz-fe for the street.

Next: do something about the ugly stepside taillights

    Here's something to give you an idea.
    This is the company that originally worked in conjuction with TRD to develop the T4.7L TRD supercharger when TRD was a division of Toyota.

    Magna Charger manufacturers intercooled supercharging systems for late model GM and Ford cars, trucks and SUVs utilizing OEM quality Eaton hybrid superchargers. : Here's the charts on the M90 design's efficiency charts. Intake temps , etc. which are high at 10 psi.

    But with H-Beam rods and low compression pistons with some stronger headbolts you could easily get more than 5 psi and way more than 100rwhp. Anyone know about how much the Tundracharger costs? The universal STS setup is about $3,000...

    I've seen it listed somewhere as $4999.... Maybe on one of their youtube vids.... And honestly it looks like they use a no name brand turbo, I would stay away. You are better off piecing a kit together by yourself.

    I'm really leaning toward the STS setup. It's cheaper and from the testimonies of the other cars using it, it seems to be a pretty nice buy. I wish someone had this setup on a Tundra already...
