I am just getting into the supra "wave", at first I had my teg, but now i want something with more power. Here are my questions:

It seems like some people want a single turbo over a twin, why?

Whats the difference between the models from 93-98?

Is the 98 TT the best one i can get?

Some basic mods that I will want to start out with, price range between 3k-6k (for just mods).

TIA

more power....

low mileage is my only preference to which year is better so 98 is the best in my opinion

Some basic mods that I will want to start out with, price range between 3k-6k (for just mods).

boost controller, downpipe, exhaust, frontmount, clutch, lightened flywheel maybe, and for suspension eibach pro-kit and kyb agx's is what id go for

TIA

supra "wave"? well, if that is the only reason why you want a Supra, i strongly suggest that you get something else. I'm not trying to offend you but there are enough people who have Supras only because of the hype as is.

But if you are serious but getting an MKIV and not only because its the "cool" thing to do, ill be glad to answer your questions (although a simple search would have given you plenty of information)

first of all, TT vs. Single. haha just because there are two turbos has nothing to do with basically how much "air" they can move. as you will soon learn, the Single Turbos are all pretty much HUGE especially when coming from the integ crowd.... simply put, more air, more fuel, more horsepower. there are alot of advantages. too lazy right now to go into detail.

93-98? well, there is the obd1 vs. obd2 thing that we all know, making the older models slightly easier to mod. also, the front bumper is ever so slightly different and the turn signals on the 97-98s are clear. and the headlight housing color as well as the tail-lights are just a touch different. Besides that, there isnt much else that changed. couple different colors..

with a TT, basic mods would be an intake, downpipe, exhausts, bcc blah blah blah, basic stuff, not really much to BPU, some get a FMIC but its not a step that everyone takes..that should be enough.. and it shouldnt run you 3000 dollars either. and it will put you right at around 400. the TTMKIV responds extremely well to simple mods.

hope that helps some, but seriously, dont get a Supra just cuz of some stupid movie, if that's the case.

didnt mean "wave" as i wont it because its the cool thing to do... heh its an expensive cool thing to do... no i meant wave as in iam becoming extremely interested in the supra as of lately, first i had a teg wave for about 3 years but thats over so now iam getting into a supra "thing".

ok iam a little confused about your reply about the turbo, so you are saying the single turbo will put out as much power as the twin?? iam just a little shady about your reply. but other then that thanks :)

"Sequential Turbochargers
Some engines use two turbochargers of different sizes. The smaller one spins up to speed very quickly, reducing lag, while the bigger one takes over at higher engine speeds to provide more boost."

So does the supra TT come with two big turbos? If yes, can i switch one out and put a smaller one in?

yes single turbos will produce more then the stock twins. they are larger. you can get big twins like the HKS ones but they are laggy as hell. better off with a big single that put out around the same horsepower with less lag.
