Toyota Supra Twin turbo 1996.
Well this was my first really powerfull car,this was the car that tought me how refined and how overly built Japanese car were.I have to state now though, this might even be the most over built car on the planet.
A stock Toyota Supra engine can be reliable to produce more than 800 hp and the complete transmission eccept the clutch will accept more than 1100 hp and some massive 8 second drag race launches.With these things in mind I knew when I bought this car the only thing I should concentrate on was the engine.
This car has the looks,the reliability and the potential from stock that no other cars has,, period.
So the first thing I did was to build a major engine upgrade, basically I ordered everything that could produce 800 hp as my stage 1. ď800 hp is stage 1,can you believe thatĒ
After my stage 1 I decided to build a stage 2 which really was a 1000 hp setup, unfortunatly the street fuels did not allow such power to be attained and therefore I produced whatever I could boosting to some 1,9 bar boost on the engine.I recorded 800,7 hp 857 nm and could not dyno any higher as we had some issues with grip on the dyno.I can only imagine what it could had produced with some proper fuel, but then again it has no interest for me that way, itís a street car so its being run on street fuel only.
I have to say when I sold this car I thought the Gtr would take over my Japanese super car feelings, but I must admit today, I miss the car, Altough its performance is not as impressive as my Gtr, I mean the Supra has absolutely no traction below 180 km/h and thatís a pity.The car is also a little dull on a circuit, first of all you feel very much it is a heavy car especially during direction changes and then again its traction problems.
I still miss the way it just eats kilometres after kilometres and the cruising sensation is second to none.Simply this car gave me some kind of driving feeling and comfort the Gtr can not give me and the other way round.I regret I sold it and my recent plan is to build another Supra during 2006 if my economy will allow me, I guess like any other I will have to save and work as hard as I can to reach this goal, only time will tell.
This does not mean I would get rid of my Gtr, although everything is for sale you know, the thing is, Ive set myself a target which is to be the proud owner of both these cars, built by myself.I think alot of people will forgive me for having a dream of owning two of the world most prestigious tuning monsters in my garage at the same time.
