I've owned and raced both turbo's and supercharged cars. I love turbo's for the ability to economize if I want to by keeping my foot out of the throttle. Superchargers are great for off idle torque,...

There were some many things I liked about theGX460 when I bought it. Then I found out it was basically a Prado 150 in a tux. Go on Youtube and look at videos of both a GX460 and the Prado 150. ...

300 Hp in a 5300 pound AWD tank is not going to run with a F150. Ecoboost F150 with 4wd will run high 13's in the 1/4 mile. The 5.0 Coyote motor is even faster.
I will say that my TRD 4wd Tundra...

I only speak from 30+ years of racing cars. I put K&N filters in everything until I experienced problems with late model cars with mass air sensors. My old 396 Chevelle SS that I raced for years...

I never use K&N filters in any vehicle with a mass air sensor. I've removed and trashed them from vehicles I've purchased. A good quality clean paper filter will keep your engine cleaner than a...
