TRD Supercharger?

Does anyone have information on when the TRD Supercharger is going to be released and the price range?

I talked to the toyota representatives at the carson toyota and lexus meet and they said that toyota had no plans for a TRD supercharger for the celica. However there is a turbo kit in development for the IS300. There also are no plans for TRD to release a Cold Air Intake. frown
For the supercharger you are going to have to go with Blitz, but I am not sure of the release date on that grin

I do not think most manufacturers make superchargers for 4 cylinder engines (like ours)... rather larger engines ex: TRD makes one for 4runner, tacoma, and solara... v6 and v8.

blitz is making one, errr already did, perfecting it, should be ready next year, jan. or so... expect $10000-12000... wctoyota is about to release their turbo kit, i believe its $3500 installed... from what I hear... I'm definately getting that!

TRD is coming out with a Turbo? $3500 installed?
Do you know if that will void warranty, or how long should someone wait to burn their engine, on a new car before getting a turbo? I haven't hit 2k miles yet.

West covina toyota is the one coming out with the kit, not TRD. So, warantee will most likely be voided spineyes

Latest word from Blitz is that the supercharger release date has been pushed back to October and will be approximately $6000.

really?! It is still listed as incomplete on their website... or at least there is no price listed and nothing seems very definite.
