Hi, This thread is to discusss the initial thoughts on the new Tacoma powertrain in terms of forced induction, which is going to be using the 2GR-FSE. I am quite disappointed that Toyota chose to ditch the 1GR in favor of the 2GR. The 2GR cannot take a supercharger, from my reading about it, because of the direct fuel injection which is impossible to control and tune. No one has ever made a supercharger Kit for the Lexus IS350, for example, which uses the same engine. Those new engines keep getting more and more difficult to tune with all those technologies coming in. My take is they are switching for two reasons: 1. Meet emmissions requirements in the US 2. Compete with the new Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon in pure power numbers (300+ HP). The thing is, they are going to sacrifice low-end torque, which is all what those trucks are about, in favor of top-end power. We truckers don't care about top HP, we care about low-end torque, don't we? And I've seen significant improvement in fuel consumption with the supercharged 1GR old gen engine, if driven lightly. Even the new 1GR engine, with all its advancements and increase in power, cannot match the low-end torque of the old-gen 1GR. But at least it can take boost. What's your say?
