As soon as the checking account will allow, I'm going to be adding a Supercharger to my 5.7. Just wondering what exhaust all the s/c tundras are running and what's good/bad about each one. I've been eyeing the Banks dual out system. Anyone running this?

Any other issues with installing a supercharger?

:ts:

It shouldn't matter which exhaust you get since super chargers run off of centrifugal engine driven type compressor it does not rely on exhaust flow gasses to drive any compressors.... therefore, whatever one sounds nice! Hope this helps! Any differences between exhausts are usually in house data differences because of specific dynos or testing conditions. There's not alot of science behind metal pipes. 1-2 hp would hardly sway my decision for any particular brand.

hope this helps!

I've heard people say they lose low end torque with after market exhaust. But these are naturally aspirated engines. Since a Supercharger is forcing air in, I assume it's going to flow out faster and with more pressure. Just wondering if it's going to help performance. I will probably end up doing it just for the better exhaust note.

I would use a 2.5" dual system for a supercharged 5.7. Should be a fair compromise, i.e. low end torque and top end hp.

I''ve got a 2.5 and it runs fine. Mine is a plane custom made from my local muffler shop.

I've had both TRD and Borla. I like Borla for the rear exits. Lots less noise/drone at hwy speeds.....only issues with most S/C installs is the limited distance between the bottom of the pedal and the floor board....other than that, it freakin' ROCKS!!!!! latest victims: X5 M, Mustang 5.0 on interstate(older, so 4.6) and head to head with a charged/turbo Ls400....i think he had more to give, but was playing nice.

I like the Corsa exhaust system. Sounds badass!!!

With turbo engines which require larger exhaust piping to run more air to spin the compressors faster, you lose low end torque but gain on the higher HP side as more air and pressure is fed through. The exhaust performances aren't as affected as much on supercharged engines since higher or lower exhaust volume / pressure does not affect the amount of forced air into the intake side from the S/C since the S/C spools along the engine's centrifugal force.

any Torque/HP gain or loss is little, and for me atleast, not worth the value I get out of aesthetics, material quality, and price points. Personally, I'm a sucker for the audible perspective, a nice sounding exhaust note w/ little cabin drone is :beavbutt: in my book!

With supercharged engines, due to how a supercharger works, you can't really go too big for exhaust sizing. Basically just pick a large diameter piping, and get something aesthetically pleasing to you.

I have a true dual setup with an H-pipe, using two 2.25"x40" powersticks on my supercharged Tundra. Here are some pictures of the setup:









I had this setup made before I knew I would be installing a supercharger, so if I was to design one now for my supercharged truck I would change two things from how it is currently:
**Use 2.5"x40" powerstick mufflers instead of 2.25"x40".
**Have the turn downs after the rear axle instead of in front of the rear axle.
