Russian Lexus LX 570 with TRD Supercharger


In order to bring some heavy power to the Lexus LX 570, a Lexus Technical Center in Moscow installed a TRD supercharger for some impressive results — check out the pull as compared to a stock LX:

Clearly, there’s some extra bite — the supercharger boosted the 5.7L V8 engine up over 500 horsepower and 548 ft/lb of torque, as compared to the standard LX 570′s 383 horsepower & 403 ft/lb. The result is almost 1.5 seconds off its 1-100km time, which dropped from 7.8 seconds to 6.19 seconds.

One nice little touch is the F badge on the fender, you can see just a hint of it in this dyno video:

If you’re interested in the details, I suggest visiting the detailed breakdown & installation — even translated from Russia, it’s easy to follow.

    I am actually surprised that I haven’t heard more stories like this one.

    A regular cab Tundra with the 5.7 and a TRD Charger hits 0-60 in 4.4

    BD—-i have often wondered why LEXUS did not take this massive block of an engine and turn it into a BEAST—-is it too large for sedan sized vehicles?  It just seems like such an incredible engine not to be used for sedans—–can you give me your thoughts???

    Is going to be nice a motor like this in some models, like IS and GS.

    What about the ECU flashing? Without the ECU tuning the  LX 570 runs not good with the TRD Supercharger.
    I know because we have installed in my LX 570 a TRD supercharger already.
    Did the brakes were change as well?
