Next it was off to Toyota Racing Development to give our 3.4L V-6 a little more poop. The 190 horses it comes stock with are boosted to a claimed 265 with this Roots-style blower under the hood, and torque is bumped from 220 to a reported 267 at the flywheel. Since TRD is a factory-backed performance line, a dealer-installed supercharger with the factory airbox intact is also covered under a five-year or 60,000-mile warranty. Unfortunately the supercharger requires premium 91-or-higher octane unleaded, and these days that's not cheap.
