JAPANS CULT CLASSIC GETS A GCC UPGRADE!
Only one of the most iconic JDM cars to ever hit the scene. This poster-boy is the Toyota Supra, famed for the bulletproof 2JZ engine and further pushed into the limelight by Paul Walker’s infamous drag race with Vin Diesel’s 67 Charger. Arguably one of the most memorable scenes from the Fast and Furious franchise. This dramatic drag race effectively doused race fuel all over the the Import vs Muscle car argument and sent shockwaves around the globe. And here, to represent the Import side of the argument is a 1994 Supra that would probably put Mr. Diesel’s car to shame when it comes to tech and trickery up the sleeve!
Belly of the Beast
The engine bay is covered by a custom designed hood by SMS Design and Performance, neatly displaying the waste gate dump tube. Power is provided by a custom-built longblock with ported and polished forged internals, and a single turbo in the form of a precision 6266, replacing the twin turbo set up the car used to run on previously. To supply the monster power plant SMS installed an AEM Methanol injection kit and Aeromotive Fuel Cell and fuel system kit. An engine needs to combust and combust fast in this case!
KEEPING COOL AND THINKING STRAIGHT
To keep the car cool SMS have designed a custom intake and intercooler kit, replacing the stock radiator with a Koyo aluminium one, with the shroud kit also custom designed by the performance shop. The computer has also received an upgrade in the form of a Haltech ECU package dealing with the wideband, boost, fuel pressure, EGT and temperature sensors. To manage distribution of power to the wheels SMS employed a TRD differential and an upgraded clutch kit.
Inside the car, we have the kind of bride that most car guys are after - the CF Bride bucket seats, as well as a hydraulic handbrake conversion system to send this Supra sideways as smoothly as possible.
Last, but not least, we have a Veilside body-kit adorning this beast, making it look like something straight out of the Fast and Furious film franchise. Our boys at SMS informed us that the car had taken a long time to build as the owner was meticulous about detail and wanted only the best products in his ride.
We can tell you that you wont be seeing this bad boy racing down the highways - EVER! But do look out for it going sideways, power sliding away like a dream at drift competitions and car meets.
