What are the differences in that car that make it faster?
TurboA differences
The difference between a Mark 3 Supra and a Turbo-A







Engine :
- Larger throttle body
- Unlabelled intake pipe of larger diameter (ie: no '3000'pipe)
- Compressor side turbo larger
- D-Jetro MAP system (Manifold ABsolute Pressure) Speed/Density air metering & accompanying ECU (as opposed to MAF Mass Air Flow metering). Does away with restrictive air flow meter. On standard mk3s until you go advanced piggyback or standalone engine management, you'll still be going through the air flow meter.
- Larger CT26 turbo with the "E" symbol on Compressor Cover as identification
- Boost up from 0.48kg/cm2 to 0.55kg/cm2 (larger actuator)
- Unique ECU to match D-Jetro system
- Metal air cleaner box
- Larger inter cooler
- Oil cooler moved to center position, below turboA duct

Interior :
- Analog Dash (No digital) with 180KM/h Speedo, 6,500 RPM redline and max boost at +400mmhg
- Interior was Leather as standard.
- Black Momo shift knob & Steering wheel
- WITHOUT cruise control (as opposed to other mk3s)

Handling :
- Suspension Package upgraded (much stiffer than standard).
- Without TEMS - Toyotas adjustable suspension
- Black colored alloy wheels "Saw blades" with 225 all round.
- Brake rotor with turboA unique ventilated holes on disk
- Front spring : 8kg / Rear spring : 3.9kg
- Front Shock : 280kg / 80kg (extend/ shrink @ piston speed 0.3m/sec )
- Rear Shock : 210kg / 65kg (")

Exterior:
- Front intake scoop (known as the 'TurboA' scoop)
- turboA badging
- Blackened (smoked) turn signals
- Small sized side mud guard
- Silver Rear "TOYOTA SUPRA" emblem
- Available only in Black : with color code 202.

Info :
- It was a limted run of 500
- The identification code should read "BLMXZ" if it is real turboA.

Performance :
- Quarter mile @ mid to low 14's
- Max speed reached 249 - 251km/h at stock.
- It was a fastest production car ever in Japan at year 88
- The output spec was 267.7ps/5,600rpm, torque of 36.5kg-m/4,400rpm

This is starting to remind me of the Honda boys that talk about the "type R".

LoL sounds sweet though, man, i'd like to have had one back in the day. I wish there were a bunch of speed density spare units we could salvage over. Did they have a different wiring harness/ECU?

I would love to have a real turbo A. i would do nothing but bigger , wider wheels(black five stars with polished lip), boost controller , exhaust, and intake. From there just enjoy having a nice rare car

That car is like a mullet! From the front it looks ok, but once you move around to the back its a little bit much for my taste.
