Default 2013 LX570 TRD.Supercharger and BBK

New on this forum, just wanted to share the new set up on the LX.

Had SC on Toyoya Sequoia, liked it a lot so decided to install one on the new 2013 LX570. Work was done at performance shop in Houston, TX. Let me know if anyone is interested in same set up. Enjoy the post!

Ordered the 2012 TRD SC, TRD Fit Kit and UniChip for Sequoia

525HP / 550LB Torque

1. Installed Brembo Brake Kits 6 Front / 4 Rear Pistons

Needed 1 inch spacers to fit brake kit along with longer screws and lug nuts, special ordered H&R spacers.

Car drives much better with the brake kit. You get more feel to the car due to the heavier rotors, calipers, and wider stance.

2. Installed TRD Supercharger

Minor fabrication to fit certain brackets into the engine bay. LX570 engine bay is smaller than sequoia/tundra.

Could not fit the TRD airbox to fit it under the hood. It has a little more volume than stock, but it shouldn't be a problem.

Installed intercooler

Installed UniChip

Ready to go. Testing out car tomorrow morning, will post results later.

TESTED Sequoia vs M3: for sure the E9X M3 won't be able to pass at highway speed from 50 - 125MPH.

Hopefully you can see that the wheels are flushed with the body after 1 inch H&R spacers.

Intercooler is right in front of radiator, that silver thing.
