This is a salon and not a show right? The show was last month.

I am skeptical of what TRD has become over the past couple of years relating to cars, I mean they outfit all the trucks w/ TRD stickers so must be around in some capacity. It also reminds me of the infamous TRD IS300...they promised that for years and made 2-3 and they are used on some track as a safety car

I'd prepare to laugh: there won't be a supercharger or turbo, just a body kit, brakes, suspension goodies, and other body parts.

I'm suspecting some handling goodies and some small power adders such intake, exhaust etc.

nothing out of the ordinary for TRD

Considering "rumors" of a supercharger (that were floating) I would like to see some further evidence of production or at least an announcement.

TRD is going to show off the kit and re-badged parts under the TRD umbrella that is fine.

I hope they'll show a supercharger kit, be it even a prototype. It will at least calm down the FI crowd.

+1.. but i dont think it will "calm down the FI crowd" i think just the opposite, it will rile up both sides.. witch is always funny

i am part of the FI crowd but kinda have my doubts that they would show even a prototype before the launch. hope im wrong

I don't think they will introduce or show a prototype of any FI.

I would put money on them only showing handling, intake and exhaust with a lip kit. They have focused on marketing the handling and how fun an exciting a car with a little hp can be. If they introduced the possibility of a FI model then they would loose a lot of initial sales as people waited for this more powerful model.

But also more power = less afforadable. In any case, I am more interested in performance parts than in any kind of FI.

well if there are only TRD parts, and no stand alone TRD model, then we just may see a supercharger kit in the future... one can only hope!

I think it would be epic if they had a supercharger on it for the announcement, but i doubt it will happen. I wonder if this will translate to the same for the fr-s, whatever it is they decide to show off.
