    So much misinformation these days

    It floors me how misinformed people are today and how they spread wrong info.


    Im on a FB page where a guy asks how will his intake,exhaust Ecoboost do against a Tundra with the TRD supercharger. His truck is not tuned so everyone is saying he will get beat and of coarse he posted a video of him getting walked. He didn't get beat to bad but of coarse the trash talk starts.

    Then one guy comes into the conversation saying that TRD Tundra's come supercharged. I pop in and inform him that the TRD Tundra does not come from the factory supercharged. It's a dealer accessory or option.

    Of coarse he tags back up. Another guy comes in telling me I'm wrong and how he bought his 12 TRD from the dealer with the blower.

    I said yes the dealer added the blower. But from the factory the TRD does not come supercharged. Meaning all TRD Tundra's rolling around aren't supercharged. 98% of them are NA.

    Naturally they go on the defensive trying to prove me wrong and such with no facts. Saying things like "I guess leather seats and back up cameras aren't factory lol"

    I reply... look guy I work for the dealer. I know the people that up sale the supercharger ,the parts people that order the supercharger and the techs that install the supercharger. The TRD package does not include a supercharger. It's a dealer option/accessory that is not installed at the factory.

    The reply... so lightings didn't come from the factory supercharged? Along with being told I'm uneducated.

    Of coarse I reply saying that I love how ignorant people are.. The ford lighting,03-04 cobra,ford GT and gt500 all come from the ford factory supercharged. These cars are standard supercharged and you won't see them running around NA.


    I go on to even post up a link from Toyota stating the TRD blower is a after purchase accessory that if installed at the dealer has a warranty.

    Im told to F-off..



    What's sad about this is that most of the people that read the first comment will not think that any TRD Tundra they race or come into contact with will be supercharged. And they will believe they beat a 505hp truck. Then go on to assume they way faster then they really are.. only to go to the track and run 14's...then be confused


    Whats worse is that it's everywhere!! Everyone is a pro driver with no racing experience,everyone is a pro tuner with no tuning experience, everyone is a pro builder with no building experience. Then when people that have done those things say ahhh No! The reply is that someone somewhere on the net said xy or z! So it must be right!

    Whats this world coming too!!

    Everyone on social media is an expert in every field they post about... and if your opinion differs, you're obviously an idiot.

    You can't fix stupid so I'd suggest you don't even try.

    People have always been wrong. Social media just lets us prove how wrong we are to a lot more people. Nothing has changed except for distribution.

    Yea, don't you know it's "only a V6. It can't possibly beat a V8". I get that all the time.
