Lots of guys have them. I've seen a lot of threads over in the second gen Tundra forum. I wish I had that kind of $$$$$!

The kit is super EASY to install, Its a direct bolt on, and little modification is needed. Good kit.. but here is a couple videos of the install. The problem you will encounter doing at home will be that fuel pump...STUPID design.

Just for the record, You can drive it to the dealer to have it re-flashed. I drove the truck 3- months without the flash. Because I had the kid before it was released.

Had so much more power then, But shifts where ...OFF

Self install of SC Kit

I believe if you have doubts then it may be beyond your ability cause this is a complete assortment of components and involves replacing your intake with the Supercharger unit and swapping injectors to larger size and changing the in tank fuel pump along with changing a stock map sensor to a vacuum / boost map sensor, nothing is difficult and following steps this can be done, just some will take a longer amount of time than others, yet its something a long day can fill the bill... and you CAN drive this after install to the dealer with common sense and using minimal throttle until remap is done. there is NO harm with easily driving to a dealer provided you don't have to drive too far and throttle input is very limited, meaning staying AWAY of from causing Boost.... Safe to do, lean on that go pedal and your playing with Knock in a bad way. Someone handy with tools and who has taken apart a few engines or head gaskets could do this easily, follow directions and look at currently available video's on Youtube.:tu:
